L'ESIEE Paris, (previously named École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs en Électronique et Électrotechnique), is a French graduate school of engineering located in Marne-la-Vallée delivering the equivalent of a master's degree. The school was established in 1904 and is part of the ESIEE network of graduate schools.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1904 and was known until the 1960s as the Breguet school. It is operated by the Paris Chamber of Commerce. Some of the students come directly from high school and graduate after five years while others, who follow the traditional path to the Grandes écoles, come from a preparatory classes and graduate in three years.

General information[edit]

Approximately 400 of the 1200 students in Paris graduate every year and 60% of them have spent at least three months studying or working outside of France. Depending on their specialization, they can attend classes in its 300 m2 (3200 ft2) clean room. It is known as the first engineering school to have students design and launch an artificial satellite, named SARA, in 1991, as part of extracurricular work in ESIEESpace, a student club. During the last two years, students in Paris choose a specialization among the following subjects:

ESIEE launched master of science programs in nano-science MEMS, electronic engineering and system on a chip, programs to which international students and 4th and 5th year ESIEE students may participate. [1] [2]

Exchange programs[edit]

In addition of the European Erasmus Programme, two main exchange programs are offered to the students:

The Tripartite Programme, offered to outstanding candidates, operates with the University of Karlsruhe, the University of Southampton, and the ICAI in the Pontifical Comillas University of Madrid. Under this program, students spend their last two years in two universities of their choice.

The Entree Programme,[1] allows students to transfer to 17 other European universities. Under this program, students spend the first semesters of the last two years in two universities of their choice.
