Professional association

A professional association seeks to further a particular profession, the interests of individuals engaged in that profession and the public interest. In the United States, such an association is a nonprofit organization for tax purposes; the roles of professional associations have been variously defined: "A group, of people in a learned occupation who are entrusted with maintaining control or oversight of the legitimate practice of the occupation. In the UK, the Science Council defines a professional body as "an organisation with individual members practicing a profession or occupation in which the organisation maintains an oversight of the knowledge, skills and practice of that profession or occupation"; the Quality Assurance Agency distinguishes between statutory bodies and regulators that "have powers mandated by Parliament to regulate a profession or group of professions and protect the use of professional titles" and professional bodies that "are independent membership organisations that oversee the activities of a particular profession and represent the interests of members" and which "may offer registration or certification of unregulated occupations on a voluntary basis."Most professional organizations of global scope are located in the United States.

The USA has led the transformation of various occupations into professions, a process described in the academic literature as professionalization. Many professional bodies are involved in accrediting degrees and examining the skills and competencies necessary to practice a person, granting professional certifications to indicate that a person is qualified in the subject area. Sometimes membership of a professional body is synonymous with certification. Membership of a professional body, as a legal requirement, can in some professions form the primary formal basis for gaining entry to and setting up practice within the profession. Many professional bodies act as learned societies for the academic disciplines underlying their professions.

ESIEE, is a network of French graduate schools composed of two graduate schools of engineering known as ESIEE Paris and ESIEE Amiens and one graduate school of management called ESIEE Management. In 1904 the Breguet school was kept this name until the 1960s, it was a graduate school of engineering in the field of electricity. In 1968 the school is operated by the Paris Chamber of Commerce. In 1992 another branch of the school opened in Amiens. In 1995 the ESIEE Management was created. 80 of the 450 students in Amiens graduate every year. During the last two years, students in Amiens choose a specialization among the following subjects: Building services engineering Computer networks and telecommunications Electrical engineering and sustainable development Manufacturing systems ESIEE Management is a business school for high tech projects where management and technologies are inseparable. Courses are based on learning the knowledge of a technical subject; the academic disciplines and the 10 months of internship allow graduate students to be effective in companies.

The possibility to spend the third year in a foreign country gives the opportunity for students to pursue an international career. The academic specializations are: Management and Biotechnology or Bioindustry Management and Computer Science or Digital Communications Management and Advanced Materials or Integrated Engineering Approximately 400 of the 1,800 students in Paris graduate every year and 60% of them spent at least three months studying or working outside France. Depending on their specialization, they can attend classes in its 650 m2 clean room, it is known as the first engineering school to have students design and launch an artificial satellite, named SARA, in 1991, as part of extracurricular work in ESIEESPACE, a student club. During the last two years, students in Paris choose a specialization among the following subjects: Computer science Signal processing and telecommunications Network engineering Electronics and microelectronics Embedded systems Manufacturing systems engineeringESIEE launched master of science programs in nano-science MEMS, electronic engineering and system on a chip, programs to which international students and 4th and 5th year ESIEE students may participate.

ESIEE Paris is one amongst the top ten Grandes écoles in the post-bac category according to the French magazine L'Étudiant in 2013. The three schools share the same alumni association called AA-ESIEE; the mission of the association is to strengthen and support the alumni network of ESIEE by developing contacts and mutual assistance among its members. The AA-ESIEE is headquartered in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. History of the Breguet School History of ESIEE Paris
