The thematic groups are in charge of defining a repository of learning outcomes by domain under the following headings:
- the positioning of the domain,
- the sectors of activity, or even the professions, corresponding to the domain,
- the expected skills
- the four components of the Bachelor-Master programme of a CMI in that domain.
A domain generally corresponds to a discipline.
As of 1 January 2016, the thematic groups are as follows:
- electronics, electrical engineering and automatics (EEA)
- civil engineering
- geography-territorial planning
- digital publishing multimedia
- computer sciences and computer engineering
- applied mathematics
- mechanics, mechanical engineering
- material sciences, material engineering
A thematic group is composed of the heads of the CMIs relevant to the theme, heads of potential new CMI prgrammes and invited experts from the socio-economic and/or academic world.
Each thematic group designates a facilitator.
