In this video, discover our two Coach Business Managers, Andrés and Dario, talking about the Engineering division in ALTEN, the trends in the industry, and the specificities of the Belgian market.
« We have many different types of engineers that can impact the different industries, the different markets, and in a quite defined manner, across the world. That said, an engineer is the one that drives innovation, the one that is able to provide a solution that maybe somebody else was not able to come up with. »Andrés Gil Altaba
Our success stories
To transport more travellers during peak times, the operator of a large international metropole entrusted our industrial customer with the automation of the busiest metro line in the network. ALTEN is helping to develop the key element: the CBTC signalling system.
According to the EPA (American Environmental Protection Agency), 30% of the energy used in a commercial or industrial building is wasted. To maximise the energy performance of buildings and industrial facilities, ALTEN supports a global leader in energy and services in the development and deployment of a FM (Facility Management) digital solution and CAM (Computer-Aided Maintenance Management) solution.

The 2023 Trends of Engineering
Digitalisation, often referred to the Industry 4.0, encompasses the integration of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, big data analytics, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
At ALTEN, we are working on Research Program about Industry 4.0. Our ambition is to combine human and artifical intelligence to increase industrial performance: “The factory of the future is not only a range of new technologies, but also a new way of working for the people who work there.” François Portier – Director of ALTEN “Smart Factory 4.0” Research Program
Environmental & Sustainable trends
With the increasing awareness of environmental issues and the urgency to combat climate change, engineers are tasked with finding sustainable solutions that minimize harm to the planet and its resources. Engineers are developing sustainable materials and construction techniques for infrastructure projects, aiming to reduce the environmental impact while ensuring long-term durability and resilience.
At ALTEN we are notably working on a global and innovative strategy. The ambition is to optimise the environmental impact of internal IT services, to rely on Innovation Labs to develop the footprint measurement and eco-design solutions of tomorrow and to put the Group’s expertise at the service of its customers and the transition of the digital sector.
« Our ALTEN engineers are on the forefront of developing new technologies, for instance, in the energy area. One of the coolest projects that I would consider “disruptive” we are doing with MAN Energy Solutions for a groundbraking project in the area of Heat Pumps”.»
