Admission to continuing education courses (FC)

The energy engineering programme is aimed at senior technicians with an undergraduate degree (B.T.S., D.U.T. or equivalent) in scientific and technical specialities, and at least 3 years’ professional experience. The course is also open to people wishing to validate their professional experience.

A triple approach


  • Preparation of administrative file
  • Self-assessment by means of a self-test: a document containing questions and corrections on basic knowledge of energy, mathematics, electricity and synthesis skills. This test enables candidates to self-assess their level of knowledge in relation to that of the entrance exam, and to reactivate their skills.
  • Preparing for the entrance exam.

Selection by the company

To enter the program, a company must be willing to become involved in the training:

  • producing an application file that includes a summary of professional experience and details of the company’s professional project.
  • appointing a company tutor to support the trainee in the admission process.

Selection by the jury

A placement test is taken in the following subjects: Energetics, Mathematics, Electricity and Written synthesis.

Two referees – the tutor appointed by the company and an ISUPFERE teacher – interview the candidate on the basis of his or her professional experience. The interview also focuses on the candidate’s willingness and ability to complete a training course: time available, family and personal organization, etc.

Depending on the outcome of the interview and level checks, the two assessors give a positive or negative opinion on admission to the preparatory cycle for harmonizing knowledge.

Tests at the end of this cycle confirm the level, enabling the jury to decide on admission to the engineering cycle.

Cost of training

The cost of the harmonisation cycle is €4,080 for a minimum of 240 hours.

The cost of the full course, i.e. the “Engineer” cycle (1,200 hours) is €20,400.

These costs apply from 1 January 2022 and are not subject to VAT.

Coverage of training

Current employees

Training costs are generally covered by companies as part of their skills development plan.
The diploma is registered with the RNCP under number 37 668. The training is therefore eligible for the Compte personnel de formation (CPF: 327 748), which means that it can be co-invested by the company and the employee.

Employees  wishing to change job or profession, jobseekers.
The Compte personnel de formation tfor professional transition enables all employees, during their working life, to take part on their own initiative and on an individual basis, in a long-term training course with a view to changing trade or profession.

Admission to the harmonisation cycle

Admission for the 2025 session is made during two selection sessions in July and December 2024. Candidates may attend one of the sessions of their choice, depending on their training plans and their level of preparation for the placement tests.

Admission to the engineering cycle 2025 – 2027

Admission to the engineering cycle is decided by a jury at the end of the harmonisation cycle. This jury for admission to the engineering cycle will be held on 8 July 2025 at 4 pm.

The start of the ISUPFERE engineering cycle for the class of 2025 will take place on 1 September 2025.
