Our corporate partners
We offer you the opportunity to go beyond the “paper project” and have a real impact on major societal, industrial and environmental issues.
Since 2009, our students have reinvented a bathroom for seniors (Lapeyre/Saint Gobain), a camera for the fire services (Thales), a coffee machine at work (Nescafé), and more. You too will be able to reinvent an industry, by developing a proposal that users want, is technologically feasible and viable for the project partner, with the aim of generating maximum real-world impact!
A project from A to Z
Teams observe and interview users to better understand their needs, benchmark existing technologies and products to identify the design opportunities, extensively brainstorm to discover the obvious, crazy, and novel ideas, and iteratively prototype to quickly test their ideas and get a better understanding of their designs. The end result is a refined design concept backed with key insights.

The best argument for deciding to pursue the ME310 program is to look at the achievements of the people who did it.Pierre ValadeFounder of Sunrise app
No more paper projects that never see the light of day, you now have a little under one year to get organized and design the finished prototype of one of tomorrow’s products or services. ME310 is a perfect mix between creating a start-up and project management in an industrial firm, with only the good sides of both.Gabrielle SergentIndustrial engineer, promotion 2016-2017

Le programme ME310 m'a permis d'intégrer le CarLab de Valeo et je pratique désormais l'innovation au quotidien dans ma vie professionnelle.Anna ZkarkovaProject manager, Valeo CarLab, promotion 2015-2016
To discover on the ME310 program that the intuitions I had about product design and innovation had been theorized and formalized in the US impressed me very much. Being an entrepreneur and being able to draw on the ME310 program to understand how to build innovative projects that fulfill needs, are simple to use and become successful, all this meets the definition of what we learned at the d.school.Aurélien SibirilCo-founder & CTO @ Zyl, promotion 2010-2011
