The École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique pour l'Industrie et l'Entreprise (National School of Computer Science for Industry and Business), formerly known as Institut d'Informatique d'Entreprise, is one of the top French public Grandes écoles in Computer Science.

Students are admitted to ENSIIE through the selective Concours Centrale-Supélec examination, after a strong competition during two years of undergraduate studies in classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles.

The school belongs to prestigious groups of institutions such as AlsaceTech, Institut Télécom or UniverSud Paris.

The ENSIIE Engineering School was created by the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in 1968.

Initially located in Paris, it is now in Évry, in Paris region, (France).

Academic studies[edit]

The admission to Institut d'Informatique d'Entreprise is made through a selective entrance examination, and requires at least two years of preparation (in Classes Préparatoires). Each year, around 130~150 new students are admitted.

Courses last 3 years, and the final year can be done in a foreign university, such as the University of Manchester (UK), Oxford University (UK), Aston University (UK), University of Sherbrooke (Canada). Some of these collaborations will enable the student to obtain both the ENSIIE degree and the Master's degree of the host university.

The studies are divided into three major components:

Some Humanities topics are added: Languages (students have to successfully pass the TOEIC before the end of their studies), Epistemology, ...

A considerable amount of time (11 months during the whole studies) is spent working in companies or research laboratories, corresponding to 3 internships: 2 months at the end of the 1st year, 3 months at the end of the 2nd year, and 6 months at the end of the 3rd year.
