    This research takes place in the higher education system in engineering schools and the aim is to measure engineers' mindset changes and their attitude changes after a special new entrepreneurship programme. This paper first introduces the French higher education system and highlights entrepreneurship education in engineering schools. It also presents the way we consider entrepreneurship, i.e. not only the way to start a business but more broadly, as a "state of mind" in the sense of becoming more entrepreneurial in every action. Then the paper presents three entrepreneurship education new actions in three different engineering schools. The next part of the paper explains our study in order to measure the 4 following criterias: how engineers understand the interactivity between different functions in a company, how they understand who is an entrepreneur, what is the state of their skills before and after the training and fi nally their career intentions. This study allows to draw some conclusions, to outline recommendations and raise new questions for the future.
