    When I was younger, I wanted to work in an industry involved in everyday life and finally the cosmetic industry attracted me. It attracted me for many reasons but perhaps the main one is the creativity required to answer to a market constantly evolving. Of course the impact on well-being is a motivation that can never be put aside.

    The French cosmetic industry is number one in the world. Due to the history of the French cosmetic industry, as having L’Oréal the world leader founded in France, the global market is influenced by it and takes inspiration from it.

    In France we have some of the most prestigious and attractive schools proposing an educational system adapted to many profiles. From universities to private schools, from business to Arts and trades, there are many options. Even if you finally realize that you didn’t choose the appropriate sector, many gateways exist to help you find your way.

    France is a country full of surprises. After more than 30 years living there, I still love crossing the country from the sea, to the mountains, passing by caves, castles, learning about wines and typical gastronomies. Your curiosity and desire to discover new cultures can lead you to wonderful places.

    The strength of ITECH’s engineering degree is how wide the job opportunities are after graduation. After my graduation I chose to become a sales manager for a cosmetic raw materials supplier. Most of my friends decided to work for manufacturers as research & development manager or technical support engineer either for cosmetics or paints.

    Working for end-product manufacturers, sub-contract manufacturers, raw material producers or suppliers, are some examples of many. This degree makes you a formulation engineer specialized in four sectors: paints, adhesives, cosmetics and inks.
