  • 23/04/2020

Always eagerly awaited by future engineering students, the ranking of the best French engineering schools by the magazine L’Usine Nouvelle has unveiled its results for the year 2020. This is an opportunity to see that ESME Sudria shines in this year’s ranking by many criteria and continues the fine progress it has made over the past five years.


43 places won since 2016 !

For this year, ESME Sudria is placed in 24th position in the general ranking of 122 engineering schools. This performance reflects a gain of 43 places for the past 5 years, rewarding its dynamism, development and innovative spirit.

ESME Sudria in the top 10 for professional integration and international outlook !

As a fundamental criteria for future engineers, professional integration is a priority at ESME Sudria. Cultivated by an educational approach that gives pride of place to the implementation of innovative projects (often in partnership with external actors) and internships in companies, this professionalizing dimension sought after by recruiters allows the school to be recognized on the essential criteria that are the compulsory duration of internships throughout the course (53 weeks cumulated), the ability of graduates to find a job in less than two months after obtaining their engineering degree (94.7%) and the gross annual salary at the end of the school (44,314 euros).

The school is also acclaimed for another essential component of its DNA: international openness. With its 50 partner universities around the world, ESME Sudria includes a compulsory academic semester abroad as part of its engineering curriculum and offers its students the possibility of completing a double degree or an internship outside of France. This approach enables it to rank among the top engineering schools on the international dimension.

In order to continue this dynamic, ESME Sudria will open an English-speaking programme at the start of the 2020 academic year, accessible from the preparatory cycle. Bilingual students or students who are very comfortable in English will be able to follow a 5-year course taught 100% in English alongside international students!

ESME Sudria shines in Paris… but also in the regions !
