Reewa, Second Year Student from Lebanon

I decided to study in France because I speak French and because ECAM Engineering program is fully in English. My arrival at school was smooth. I received some help from the admissions and international departments. The campus is very nice and green. The classes are interesting. The students are welcoming and friendly.

Shruti, 1st year student from India

When I was in India, I was very involved in science and robotics. The 5-year ECAM Engineering program corresponds thus perfectly to my expectations and my professional project. Indeed, it’s a program in mechanical and electrical engineering with a dual degree in choice of concentrations, in particulary in Robotics

Edgardo, 2nd year student from Mexico

As part of the ECAM Engineering program, each student have almost a year of hands-on experience. During my fisrt student-year, I had the opportunity to do an internship in a water treatment plant in Mexico. This experience helped me develop my professional projects and helped me mature as person.
