    With the ECE, which city can I choose to attend an engineering school?

    In France, ECE is present in four different cities, namely Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and Rennes. Theinternational dimension also plays a key role in this engineering school, since students can spend semesters in foreign partner institutions and internships in international companies throughout their studies.

    Attending an engineering school in Rennes

    From September 2023, young people will have the opportunity to enroll in the 1st and 3rd year of the Bachelor Software Engineering program in Rennes. This pleasant city has also become an important employment area, particularly in the innovation and new technology sectors. It is a logical choice for those who wish to train in these promising fields and take advantage of the many professional opportunities for engineers.

    Attending an engineering school in Paris

    Nestled in the heart of the Eiffel Campus and a stone’s throw from the most famous iron tower, ECE Paris offers all the necessary comfort to study at ease in the capital. There are many events, as well as interventions of professionals recognized in their fields. The eight majors of the Grande École program can be studied, as well as all the Bachelor and MSc specializations. For example, students can choose the Information Systems and Cybersecurity or Big Data & Analytics majors in the Grande École program or the Web and Mobile Development or Digital Business & Data specializations in the Bachelor’s program.

    Attending an engineering school in Lyon

    The former Citroën building, once called “the world’s gas station”, is now home to ECE Lyon, where students can take the first three years of the Grande École program as well as the MSc Data Engineer & Artificial Intelligence. It is within this historic building with its art deco style and in an illustrious neighborhood that the engineers and technicians of tomorrow evolve.

    Attending an engineering school in Bordeaux

    Lovers of gentleness and tranquility are not left out, as ECE is also present in Bordeaux since 2019, joining other schools of the OMNES Education group that had made their home there. On the banks of the Garonne River, students in the Grande École and Bachelor’s programs are blossoming in the scientific fields of their choice. For example, some choose the Connected Objects, Networks and Services major of the PGE, while others choose the Security Developer specialization of the Bachelor’s degree.
