The École nationale supérieure d'électronique, d'électrotechnique, d'informatique, d'hydraulique et des télécommunications (ENSEEIHT) is a French engineering school (Grande École) in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Computer Science, Hydraulics and Telecommunications.

The INP-ENSEEIHT is a public engineering school,under the trust of the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research and in an agreement with the prestigious Ecole polytechnique.[1] INP-ENSEEIHT is one of the seven components of the Institut national polytechnique de Toulouse.

The standard curriculum is a three-year program resulting in the French Diplôme d'Ingénieur, considered by European universities (Bologna declaration) as a Master's degree of the European Higher Education Area. The ENSEEIHT is part of Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (INP Toulouse) which is itself part of the University of Toulouse. The school is also an associated school of the Institut Télécom.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1907 by the Toulouse city council with the purpose of training engineers for the South-Western France electrical and hydraulic networks development.

In the '30s, Charles Camichel, the first director of the school, develops research on hydraulics. Hydraulics then contributed to the reputation of the school.

In 1948, the school has become an ENSI - French abbreviation for National Superior School of Engineering - under the direction of Léopold Escande. This was an acknowledgement of the high level of the training and the research works.

Admissions[edit]

As a Grande École, the school recruits the majority of the students after the selection made by the competitive examination which is the final step of two years of intensive Classes Préparatoires aux Grandes Écoles. Each department has its own required admission rank that is determined by the number of candidates that want to integrate the department. Other ways to integrate the school exist, some students are admitted to the school after the University or after two years of specific integrated preparatory classes at the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse.

Academics[edit]

Programs[edit]

The standard curriculum is the French specific three-year program in engineering that leads to the Diplôme d'Ingénieur degree. This degree is officially considered as a Master's Degree of the European Higher Education Area by the European Bologna declaration.

The five departments of the school are :

The school also delivers Mastères Spécialisés (Specialized Masters), that are one or two years specialized programs in research that can be made after a Master's Degree.

Double Degree[edit]

The school proposes several opportunities to achieve a Double Degree with the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, GA (USA) for instance, or with Imperial College in London, United Kingdom.

Partnerships[edit]

The school has established for many years a lots of partnerships with other French and international universities and institutes of technology.

The ENSEEIHT is also an application school for the very prestigious École polytechnique.
