Initiatives d’excellence en formations innovantes : PLACIS Supméca

PLACIS (Plateforme Collaborative d’Ingénierie Systèmes)

A new format to train engineers

trough at-a-distance international and/or industrial multidisciplinary projects carried out collaboratively by students

using the last engineering tools and the new 3.0 semantic and collaborative platform developped within PLACIS.

 

PLACIS projects for Master students

  • PLACIS projects for Master students are carried out by teams from two universities in two countries.
  • After a PLACIS project, Master students are prepared to the conditions now prevailing in the industrial world, thanks to the multicultural and multidisci­plinary experience they gain.
  • Projects can run almost all year long, each academic partner adding its calendar and students working collaboratively.

Example of calendar for Institut polytechnique Grand Paris students :

Master 1: from April to June

Master 2: from September to February (300 hours/student) OR from December to February (150 hours/student)

 

Organisation scheme of each semester

A company proposes a project preferably requiring expertise from different engineering fields – or – a company wants to continue a previous project in a new phase.

Industrial and academic partners discuss in order to better define and validate the subject.

3

Groups of students are formed in both universities in order to create a team (total: 6 to 10 students).

A kick-off meeting (in-person or via video-conference) is organized with all people involved in the project.

Then, students carry out their project while staying in their home university, exchanging data and using the tools of collaborative engineering. They are tutored by the teachers and the industrial company providing the subject.

The performance (final presentation, reports, models, behavior…) is assessed by the industrial partners and the teachers.

 

PLACIS projects for Bachelor students

  • PLACIS projects for Bachelor students are carried out by part (and later all) of the students in their third year of Bachelor studies.
  • Concretely, the typical course and practical work scheme is replaced in these projects by a learning scheme done via tutored projects : tutoring & resource sessions + project work. The knowledge and competences are gained trough the project.
  • These projects welcome foreign Bachelor students.
  • Some projects are carried out by teams from two universities.

 

Platform & Tools

The 3.0 platform

In the framework of PLACIS, a new 3.0 platform based partly on Edx was developped :

  • adaptative
  • collaborative
  • semantic
  • social
  • real community place 
  • for each project
  • real learning management 
  • system allowing individual
  • learning path for each
  • student 

 

Tools used by the students

  • Catia V6
  • Dymola
  • SysML
  • ANSYS tools
  • Simulia
  • Matlab
  • Abaqus
  • Artisan Studio
  • WebEx
  • Skype
  • Sharepoint

 

Companies & research centers in PLACIS

  • Propose subjects for projects that can be realized during several semesters.
  • Interact regularly with students and academic tutors.
  • Receive the content of the work done by the students.
  • Can assess participating students, who are potential recruits.
  • Gain experience on the most advanced integrated system engineering software and methods they may consider using in the future.
  • Can take advantage of a wide range of academic partners.

Universities & students in PLACIS

  • Have students realizing the projects and teachers & academic staff coaching them.
  • Strengthen ties with the industrial world.
  • Can propose multi-semesters projects to both students and staff.
  • Gain experience on the most advanced integrated system engineering software and methods they may consider using in the future.
  • Can take advantage of new academic partners and improve their position in international education engineering.
  • Can introduce new tools in order to make teachers become coaches in projects based learning made through new toolboxes and methods.

Dassault Systemes Global Academic Programs

Dassault Systèmes a rejoint avec enthousiasme le projet Placis, car il propose un nouveau niveau d'excellence dans l'enseignement supérieur. Il articule des cas réels de problématiques industrielles avec l'utilisation des solutions Dassault Systèmes les plus avancées dans l'ingénierie systèmes avec les outils CATIA pour la collaboration  et SwYm pour des pratiques novatrices en matière de réseau social. PLACIS forme des étudiants avec de grandes compétences pour le monde professionnel et fournit des connaissances avancées dans la mise à jour des logiciels et des méthodes.

Élève ingénieur en 3ème année - Supméca Paris

J’ai choisi d’intégrer le projet « Advanced H-Portal » car je savais que j’aurai la possibilité de travailler avec des étudiants de l’ENSEA sur des problématiques industrielles réelles en restant toujours dans un cadre pédagogique, en collaboration avec l’entreprise allemande « FESTO », le partenaire académique allemand de la « Hochschule Esslingen » et les professeurs de Supméca et de l’ENSEA. Grâce à leur encadrement enthousiaste, nous avons pu mener à bien ce projet, améliorer notre bagage technique en ingénierie système, croire en nos idées et savoir les défendre devant des professionnels !
