Itinéraires professionnels et identité des ingénieurs issus du système d'enseignement supérieur agricole. Le cas des ingénieurs agronomes de l'E.N.S.A.T et des ingénieurs en agriculture de l'E.S.A.P

Abstract : Above all, the main objective of his study is to analyze the role of the French agricultural higher education system in the professional path where engineers come from. It consists in highlighting the specificity which characterizes agricultural engineers in the social extraction, then the particularity in the training path and more in the social integration. From a sample research from which 304 engineers are interviewed, we have wondered about the existence of a professional group well constituted and clearly identified. The research, based on the comparative analysis of engineers from two establishments in Toulouse, clears up the professional path followed by the E.N.S.A.T (Ecole Nationale Supérieure Agronomique de Toulouse) and the E.S.A.P (Ecole Supérieure d'Agriculture de Purpan) agricultural engineers. It emphasizes the agricultural sphere's advantage as it offers lots of professional opportunities for agricultural engineers: a small part becoming farmers or entering a professional organization, and a bigger part mainly becoming executives in the industry, service, and technical institutes sectors, such as teachers in the agricultural technical education as well as in many associations. It points out that the agricultural notion, meaning the “farmers' world” in France, has had a broader significance today, since the power of the agricultural engineer concept for mostly male individuals, is less effective recently as the feminine power has raised due to their professional trainings and careers.
Finally, this study shown that a gradual lost of professional identity is noticeable because of the increasing amount of engineers, which is smaller from the agricultural part than before and with more and more women joined, and who work more outside the traditional field of the agricultural activity.
