Pedro Henrique

Exchange student from Brazil

I chose ESME because I wanted to study in an engineering “Grande Ecole”, and learn French. At ESME, 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? Everything! Now, I think and work in a totally new way.
