Engineering Studies: N+I programme

Engineering Studies in France
Among European countries, France is at the forefront of technological prowess in all sectors: agrifood, biotechnologies, communications, distribution, energy, civil engineering, chemicals and materials, technology, transport, public works etc. The excellent education provided by France’s engineering schools is highly acclaimed. France's national symbol, the Eiffel Tower, bears tribute to more than 150 years of excellence in engineering !

The “n+i” Engineering Network was born in 1996. It is a non-profit association representing the best of French Engineering Institutes under the guidance of the French Ministry of Higher Education.

In 2012, over 2 000 students from 65 different countries (and over 150 from India) got a master’s degree in one of the “n+i” engineering institutes in France.

The “n+i” Network brings together 70+ Graduate Engineering Schools and other engineering training programmes in all areas of engineering, from agriculture to telecommunications, civil engineering, mechanics, informatics, biotechnology, chemistry, materials, electronics, environment, etc. The " n+i" Network is a unique interlocutor that represents more than 30 000 student engineers and 250 research laboratories spread over 40 cities in France.

For personalized counseling, students may visit the local Campus France offices situated in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune. For Engineering Master’s programs in France, they may also contact the “n+ i ” Engineering Network office in Delhi.

2) The Network "n + i" of Graduate schools for an International Master in Engineering.

"n + i" Network brings together more than 70 French Grandes Ecoles of Engineering in all fields of science and technology (from agriculture to telecommunications, and including civil engineering, mechanics, informatics, biotechnology, chemistry, materials, electronics, environment, etc) (there are 250 keywords to choose from).

The "n+i" Network is a unique interlocutor that represents more than 30 000 student engineers of which 7 000 graduate each year and 250 research laboratories spread over 40 cities and 18 Regions of France.

“n+i” Engineering Institutes is a non-profit making association run on behalf the Official Body CDEFI (Conférences des directeurs d’écoles françaises d’ingé,ieurs) representing all French Engineering Institutes near the Ministry of French Higher Education.

All partner institutions of Network "n + i" are authorized by the Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs (CTI). The CTI is an independent body, mandated by French law since 1934 to evaluate all engineering courses, to develop the quality of training, to promote the National Degree and the engineering profession in France and abroad. They offer students who hold a Bachelor in their country either an « Diplôme d’Ingénieur” (Engineering Master Degree) or International Masters Degree

What type of training do young engineers need in order to master the management of projects, teams and businesses, tackle major challenges, and more importantly perhaps, adapt to a constantly changing world?

The Network "n + i" study programs are designed to aid students in the difficulties of adapting to education in a new country. Students normally first receive intensive French courses from mid-July to mid-September.

Preparing engineers who have an international vocation for the position of Engineer Manager, necessarily involves training in Sciences and technology, but must embrace a wider cultural dimension. This training must enable students to discover different cultural environments and prepare them to work within an international framework.

The strengths of the training school of engineering: high scientific level, excellent practical training through Hands and projects, many courses in business, ease of jobs after Diploma.

The benefits of studying at an Ecole d’Ingénieur: high scientific level, excellent practical training through practical experience and projects, nternships with companies, and ease of finding employment after graduation.

Over the last two years, the “n+i” Network has developed partnerships with some of the best universities in the world (almost 90 agreements with Australia, Japan, China, Hungary, Russia, Thailand, Jordan, Brazil, Mexico….and INDIA) and also with industrial companies (including Total, FranceTélécom, Dassault, Rhodia, EDF, PSA, Faurécia, Thomson, Thalès, Lafarge, Saint-Gobain, ST Microelectronics, MacaoWater, Rockwell Collins, etc..) who wish to fund the education and training of international engineers (French or foreign) for which they have a need. In this way, the partner universities can accept French students looking for a high-level international experience.

MOAs organizing double Masters degrees are signed in order to offer to students a perfect and clear framework to get two degrees.

3) “n+i” Engineering Network in India

The“n+i” Engineering Network felt the ever growing demand of Indian engineering students to go to France. France being the largest country in Western Europe and the third-largest in Europe as a whole (after Russia and Ukraine), and it possesses the second-largest exclusive economic zone in the world), just behind that of the United States.

France has the world's fifth largest economy by nominal figures and the ninth largest economy by PPP figures. A close 700+French companies are present in India and opening employment opportunities for bi-lingual engineers & employees. France receives close to 2 000 students each year from India for various streams of education, with engineering & management being the most sought after.

The India “n+i” office was set-up in the year 2005 to help students with free counselling, admission formalities, documentation, visa guidance and other related services.

A single online application form , with no registration / application fees, allows a student to send his candidature for application to more than 70 engineering institutes in France, under N+I umbrella.
