Polytech Marseille is a Grande Ecole d’Ingénieurs (graduate school of science and engineering) that is part of Aix Marseille Université, the biggest university in France. The School offers 8 specialist courses in New Technologies which lead to an engineering degree after 5 years of studies.
High level engineering degrees
These advanced level courses have a strong professional focus: they include compulsory work placements in a professional organisation.
These programs also benefit from a top rank scientific environment, with teaching staff drawn from laboratories attached to major French research organisations that are among the leaders in their field.
Student-engineers are recruited on the basis of a selective admissions process, via one of two nationwide competitive admissions examinations (concours):
- either after the baccalauréat (national secondary school graduation examination) for admission to a five-year course;
- or after two years of higher education for admission to a three-year course.
Programs with national and international quality labels
The courses are approved by the Commission du titre d’Ingénieurs (CTI) the French authority that authorizes recognised engineering schools to deliver the Diplôme d’Ingénieur (a state-recognised title, recognized as equivalent to a “Master in Engineering” by AACRAO) and thus guarantees the quality of the courses The courses are also accredited Eurace (European quality label for engineering education).
