These links are made possible the trades (FFB and FNTP) and directly with major construction companies (VINCI Construction, Bouygues, Eiffage), mid-sized companies, as well as SMEs.
Representatives of these different stakeholders are members of the board of directors, the teaching staff, the examination boards, and the alumni network. They also participate in the development of training content.
