TOEIC 785 points
The Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI) has clearly stated that "the desirable level in English for an engineer is the experienced C1 level. Under no circumstances will an engineering diploma be awarded to a student who does not achieve the independent B2 certified level in English of the Council of Europe's European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which distinguishes 6 levels."
In today's global job market, the acquisition of language skills by young engineers is an imperative, whether for internships, employment abroad, or as part of an ever-increasing number of international projects. It is essential to train engineering students in the use of English in the workplace.
Polytech-Marseille has made it a priority to train its students in the professional use of English. In addition to the minimum TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) score of 785/990 required for graduation, the school has established several TOEIC score levels to be reached at the end of each year of study, which, if not attained, will not allow the student to progress to the next year.
The school pays for students to take the Toeic test, subject to certain conditions.
