Engineering Programme -Add to Favourites
Centrale Nantes trains 360 students per year within its general engineering programme leading to the 'diplôme d'ingénieur' equivalent to a Master of Science and Engineering. This qualification is awarded to students after a total of five years of higher education.
The first year is devoted to broad-based multi-disciplinary engineering training in the form of a common-core curriculum. In each of years 2 and 3 students focus on a technical discipline with their choice of specialisation from the 20 or so on offer. In year 3 students also follow a professional option, to hone in on a particular sector of activity or company function.
The admissions process is highly selective. French students with excellent high school results spend two years in the intensive 'classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles' preparing for the 'concours' - competitive entrance examinations to French engineering schools. Successful candidates then undertake three years of study at Centrale Nantes - corresponding to the senior undergraduate year and two graduate years.
Courses from the engineering programme are open to international students - selected by our partner institutions abroad - as part of a double degree or via an exchange year or semester.
