Engineers of the world

The rapid evolution towards a globalized world puts our future graduates in the front line to face major global challenges: technical and digital progress, security, growth, social issues, sustainable development, etc. It is necessary to learn to work in international teams and consortia. Moreover, soft skills (communication, adaptation, creativity, team spirit, interculturality) are nowadays essential for integration in the job market. International immersion promotes the acquisition and development of these skills.

Studying abroad

ECE opens the doors of the international world to you: each one of you goes to train abroad!

In order to obtain the CTI accredited engineering title, every student in the engineering cycle must have an international experience. At ECE this mobility is realized during an academic semester at one of the numerous partners of the school. Moreover, opportunities for double degrees abroad exist for our engineering students.

International at ECE is also…

English is taught from the 1st year of the preparatory program to the end of the 2nd year of the engineering program. In the preparatory cycle, the aim is to acquire a common and advanced level of vocabulary, and to learn conversation in order to prepare for trips abroad. In the engineering cycle, students will develop their English skills adapted to new technologies.

ECE has set up international sections where courses are taught in English. However, ECE does not forget the other languages: German, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, FLE (French as a foreign language)… are also taught at ECE. The second language is compulsory during the two years of the integrated preparatory cycle and in the first year of the engineering cycle. It is optional in the second and third year of the engineering cycle. Each year the school receives many international students on exchange, allowing the students of the school to blossom in a multicultural environment.

The ECE International Association

ECE International is a student association of ECE. It organizes many events for the French and international students of the school: tastings, trips, visits, etc.

Testimony of Jade, who went to Australia

Jade LIN, a 2019 graduate of ECE’s Grande Ecole Engineering Program spent a semester at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.

“Situated in the heart of downtown and also known for its innovation,
the programs offered by the university corresponded to the concepts
that I wanted to explore further. Also, knowing that I would be continuing in
double degree with a business school (Audencia Nantes), the courses
of Applied Health Management at UTS was a perfect fit for my future career and current studies. At UTS, I chose to take a course in connected objects with a project in health, and then to prepare myself for Audencia Nantes, I took business courses: management in health and supply chain. Many activities are organized by the university in the premises, cafes, tourist places, to meet new people and visit Sydney

The Erasmus+ Program

Erasmus+ is a European program that allows any institution with an Erasmus+ charter to create a partnership with another institution that also has a charter.

The Erasmus+ program facilitates and encourages the European mobility of students, teachers and staff of higher education institutions.

Each year the JIT submits a grant application to the Erasmus+ agency. In order to enable exchanges between program participants, the Erasmus+ agency allocates a grant to partner institutions. The latter then distribute grants to students, staff or professors carrying out a mobility within the framework of Erasmus+. The amount of the scholarships is defined by the Erasmus+ agency according to the standard of living in the host country.

In order to obtain a scholarship, ECE students must first apply to the ECE international service with a file that is sent to them by email. The obtaining of a scholarship is not systematic.

In 2022, ECE has more than 100 Erasmus+ university partnerships.
