Studying at ECE as an exchange student

ECE welcomes students from its partner universities. They come to ECE on the Paris campus to do an academic exchange for one or two semesters. Thanks to the international sections in ING4 and ING5 (2nd and3rd year of the engineering cycle), exchange students can follow courses in English even if they do not speak French. The ECE does not require any French prerequisites to study in the international section. International students contribute to the life and diversity of the school, to its openness to the world and to the interculturality of its students.
