EDuCATIoN AT ESME Sudria

Founded in 1905, the ESME Sudria Engineering School is a private, non-profit higher education institution under the supervision of the French Ministry of Education and Research. We have over a century of experience in training engineers. Our programs provide a broad, well-developed foundation which enables our graduates to succeed in a wide variety of engineering careers.

At ESME Sudria, our mission is to train engineers, through state-of-the-art research, to face the technological challenges ahead: energy transition, new mobility, digital intelligence and health and human services. We also work with industrial and international partners. This collaboration advances scientific knowledge, and broadens our curriculum. Through our on-going collaboration with businesses in France and overseas, we share our core values:

  • Focus on our students’ concerns
  • Innovate through to our expertise
  • Openness about the industrial world, among other cultures

ESME Sudria is proud to be a member of the “Grandes Ecoles”, France’s prestigious consortium of high-level engineering and business schools, whose students are selected through highly competitive entrance examinations. We are also recognized by the French Consortium of Engineering Credentials (Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs – CTI). This enables us to deliver the French national engineering degree (“Titre d’ingénieur”), recognized internationally as a “Master of Engineering”.

INTERNATIoNAL LIFE AND STuDIES AT ESME Sudria

All third-year students must complete a semester abroad (outside France). This enhances our future engineers’ training, and allows them to adapt to a new culture and a new language. ESME Sudria students study in total immersion programs at partner universities throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and South Africa.

In their fifth year, students may opt for a fully international program by spending an entire year at a partner university. In addition to their ESME Sudria engineering diplomas, they also earn Master of Science from a partner university.

All of our students study and use English in their studies. From the very first year of our preparatory program, students participate in intensive immersion courses, but they can also select our international track and take half of their courses in English. In our engineering program, some courses are taught in English, including courses by visiting professors.

Our students pursue international careers, so we offer and encourage the option of a second foreign language, beginning in the students’ first year. Students can choose from various languages such as German, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Madarin, etc.

At ESME Sudria, we don’t stop at sending our own students to other countries. We also welcome international students from our partner universities and other excellent programs, either as exchange students, free-movers or as visiting research interns. Nearly 10% of our students are from outside France, representing some 20 different nationalities. In order to help foreign students fit in and provide them with a total immersion experience, our international students take standard classes at ESME Sudria and mix with French students. They can take classes in French or in English, and must meet the pre-requisites for each class.

As a future engineer, I have to have a global outlook. That’s why I chose the International Track. I enrolled in the Master of Engineering Management program at the University of Wollongong, Australia, where I took courses in the School of Engineering and the School of Business. This developed my management skills and my technical skills at the same time.
For anyone who dreams of an international career, or of developing their skill set, adapting to a new way of life or just exploring a new culture, the International Track is a great starting point.

ANAÏS / CLASS OF 2014
EXCHANGE STUDENT AT THE UNIVERSITY
OF WOLLONGONG (AUSTRALIA)

During my first year in the engineering program, I was an exchange student for a semester at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. It completely changed how I think about the world! The cultural differences, the need to adapt to all kinds of new situations, and having daily contact with people from such different backgrounds really motivated me in my work. In addition, my classmates came from every corner of the globe. That allowed me to use different languages every single day!

OLIVIER / CLASS OF 2015
EXCHANGE STUDENT AT SHANGHAI JIAO TONG UNIVERSITY
(CHINA)

I chose ESME Sudria because I wanted to study in an engineering “Grande Ecole”, and learn French. At ESME Sudria, I worked on projects with a very motivated group of students, and great teachers. I learned and mastered new methods; totally different ways of solving engineering problems that I never knew about. What did I learn during my year at ESME Sudria? Everything! Now, I think and work in a totally new way.

(BRAZIL)

At ESME Sudria, I learned a lot through the hands-on projects that we worked on with our laboratory professors. I gained a great deal of specific technical knowledge. It’s also really fun to live and study in Paris, one of the world’s greatest cities! Dealing with cultural dif ferences made me more mature, and I learned to see the world in a different light.
