Challenge our students

Make the most of our students' skills

Year after year, IMT Mines Albi develops educational projects with and for companies. Take advantage of the skills and fresh perspectives of our students, your future co-workers, to provide answers to your technological, innovation or industrial performance challenges. As part of project-based teaching, a team of student-engineers will implement the appropriate methodological approaches, under the supervision of their teachers.


Systematic exploration of an innovative technological solution with 1st year students


Systematic exploration of an innovative technological solution


The Dextinov project aims to enable a group of 4 first-year students from IMT Mines Albi to implement an "innovative design" approach that is both structuring and generating concepts: the C-K theory developed through the DKCP method.

In order to acquire the keys to understanding innovation in the business world, the deployment of this approach relies on real projects proposed by companies: a manufactured product or manufacturing process or service, new, including a technology component, and in development.


From March to May, the working group analyzes your project and proposes innovative technological solutions. The projects are supervised by internal and external contributors, guarantors of the C-K method developed at Mines ParisTech and using the school's documented resources.
