One of the key success factors of EURECOM's project was to understand the importance of the international dimension for its teaching and research.
AN INTERNATIONAL CONSORTIUM
Our consortium is mainly composed of international members with a focus on Europe.
These members play a decisive role as they take part in EURECOM's statutory authorities. These authorities define EURECOM’s activities, its teaching and the strategy of its research.
This original administrative organization ensures education for the benefit of members and research at EURECOM in line with the constraints of the industrial world and the international context.
A GUIDING PRIORITY
EURECOM also chose to open its recruitment to foreign teachers and students (70% of the students come from outside of France, and all the courses are taught in English). The course catalogue was designed to comply with the European curriculum based on the ECTS to allow better lisibility and facilitate student's mobility.
The scope of EURECOM’s research, whether fundamental or contractual, is also very much international. It is often, but not only, carried out with our members through bilateral contracts or through European multi-partner contracts.
EURECOM has been the venue for people of diverse origins and cultures who often have a quite different approach to problems and their solutions. Apart from scientific knowledge, these are the qualities to be encouraged in a school that trains the future generation of European engineers.
