Un petit supérieur. Pratiques d'orientation en Sections de Techniciens Supérieurs

Abstract : More and more students choose to continue their studies after having completed a two-year programme at a school of engineering. It seems that these practices cannot be viewed as a way for the students to misuse those short programmes since half of the students registered are middle class and therefore cannot economically or socially afford such strategies. A statistical survey done on 420 first-year students at a school of engineering in the suburbs of Nantes, completed by a series of interviews with twenty of them allows to better understand the choices – a priori rather paradoxical – that middle-class high-school graduate students make regarding those two-year programmes. Thus these “new” students find that those two-year programmes of engineering are a good way to feel their imperative need to continue their studies and meet the requirements of their career projects while progressing step by step, as they build their school and professional experiences.
