Careers in industry

The Orne offers students interested in working in industry a wide range of courses in every profession.

One sector that is particularly well represented in the department is industrial plastics. Training is this area has been designed to respond to the lack of qualified professionals in the plastics industry. The courses are held at the Institut Supérieur du Moule and the Institut Supérieur de Plasturgie d’Alençon.

In the Orne, graduates in plastics are soon able to find jobs -  with plastic moulding manufacturers located in the department and major customers nearby (automotive and office equipment sectors), the job market is pretty buoyant.
