I joined the double degree program ENSAM / Georgia Tech in 2007. My first internship was in Paris with TOTAL Exploration & Production. I worked on the design of a platform in Nigeria (cost of the project: $3 billion). I was assisting the engineering manager on the design of the production deck. One of the characteristics of working on this kind of project is that engineers have a global view of the subject they are working on. Engineers have to understand and manage all the disciplines which are needed to build a platform (process, mechanical, structural, electrical, etc.).

The multidisciplinary knowledge that Georgia Tech students get is a key to the understanding of the global nature of the problems. For people who seek a fast career track within renowned companies such as Total, Georgia Tech is the perfect option.
