The École nationale supérieure d'informatique et mathématiques appliquées, or Grenoble INP - Ensimag, is a prestigious French Grande École located in Grenoble, France. Ensimag is part of the Institut polytechnique de Grenoble (Grenoble INP). The school is one of the top[1][2][3] French educational institutions and it specializes in Computer science, Applied Mathematics and Telecommunications.

Students are admitted to Ensimag after strong competition during two years of undergraduate studies in classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles. Studies at Ensimag are of three years' duration and lead to the French degree "Diplôme National d'Ingénieur" (equivalent to a Master’s degree).

Ensimag Graduate specializations[edit]

Ensimag’s curriculum offers a variety of compulsory and elective advanced courses, making up specific profiles. Most of the common core courses are given during the first year, and during the first semester of the second year, allowing students to acquire the basics in Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Students then choose a graduate specialization.
