The evening was concluded by a presentation of all current and prospective work topics and relevant careers, conducted by the company’s engineers. The new partnership, signed and supported by ARQUUS and the ENSTA ParisTech community, launches a new teaching chair of “Defense innovation”.
Within this framework, the ENSTA ParisTech community – ENSTA ParisTech, ENSTA Paris Tech Foundation, and Students’ Union – and ARQUUS, create a new teaching chair dedicated to innovation, complex systems engineering and their applications to the field of military vehicles. ENSTA ParisTech wishes to extend their network of partnerships with industrial companies, in order to create chairs dedicated to transversal themes with a strong technical, economic or social impact.
Thanks to this chair, students from ENSTA ParisTech will benefit from ARQUUS’ support in many research fields, such as hybrid drive or vehicle automation.
