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
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

UNIVERSIDAD FEDERAL DE JUIZ DE FORA
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.

BEIJING INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Founded in 1905, ESME Sudria trains multidisciplinary engineers, important professionals in the sectors of the technologies of the future: energy, systems and environment; on-board systems and electronics; images, signals and networks, digital intelligence and data. Its modern teaching method is derived from three components: the importance of innovative spirit; the omnipresence of projects and initiative; and a resolutely international, human, and cultural outlook. Since its creation, more than 14,000 engineers have graduated from its courses. ESME Sudria delivers a Master of Engineering certified by the Engineering Education Commission (CTI) and recognized internationally as a Master of Science.
