The ENSTIB develops all its missions « for » and « with » the companies that are related to the wood processing industry.
This industrial collaboration is permanent and made possible by the activities of the CRITTBois, a centre of Resources for the Wood Industry that is closely associated with the Enstib and follows the technical development of companies.
Partnerships formed with important industrial suppliers (Biesse, Weinig, Giardina, MSL) provide the school with both a technical platform and constantly renewed scientific equipments.
Every year, about a hundred outside speakers (manufacturers, executive managers, invited foreign academics) give a lecture within the School, which help complete the program taught by the professors.
The ENSTIB is entitled to collect the apprenticeship tax in accordance with the following categories: Top executives, Middle managers and Skilled workers.
The constant increase of the payments tends to show how permanent and dynamic the partnership which has been established between the ENSTIB and the companies is.
