In 2017, setec will celebrate 60 years of existence.

We are now entering a new era of engineering, that of a digital transition and a technological change. Today, we must now look for subjects beyond our double frontier: International and Innovation.


International development enables setec to build up its prestigious portfolio of projects. Operations outside of France represent over 20% of our revenues and 30% of our new orders. To achieve this challenge, we are committing ourselves to sectors with a strong potential: Transport infrastructures (road, rail, airport, maritime), Urban Mobility, Energy Transition, Project Management. We seek projects where our expertise, based on our home references, and our innovative approach are key success factors for our clients.

In the field of innovation, the digital revolution offers us great opportunities and exciting challenges.

It disrupts our methods of working and induces us to reinvent the use of our environment, making it more sustainable, safer, more mobile and more resource-efficient. At the forefront of this revolution, our engineers deploy new mobile tools for site supervision, they are reinventing mobility in our cities, are finding solutions to efficiently manage energy or ensure monitoring of infrastructure through the Internet of Things. Engaging in a transverse innovation approach and arousing entrepreneurship among our engineers, setec provides the technical, commercial and managerial ecosystem to make ideas turn into businesses. 

This anniversary is also a perfect opportunity to reflect on what unites us and to draw the way to our future. setec is by nature a place of creation and innovation. Several generations of engineers work side by side in human size companies bound together by a strong and inventive teamwork collaboration. What makes us different is our commitment. Active owners of our company, our engineers deeply feel a duty to succeed in serving our clients.

Finally, our organization in human-sized entities is a key element in the quest for excellence and agility in the face of market changes.

This forms the spirit and the values of an independent engineering firm. It is a great matter for the development of our company, as well as its undisputable reputation are our choices and our responsibility. These principles are shared by all employees at setec. 

We have tremendous resources at setec. We free our imagination to design a new era of engineering.
