The École nationale supérieure d'ingénieurs de Caen & Centre de Recherche (ENSICAEN), which translates as National Graduate School of Engineering & Research Center, is one of the French "grandes écoles", whose main purpose is to form chemical, electronical, and Computer science engineers (with a level "bac+5"). It is located on the city of Caen (France) in Normandy.

Graduate specializations[edit]

The school delivers five engineering degrees[2] accredited by the French Commission des titres d'ingénieur:[3]

  • electronics and applied physics
  • computer science
  • chemical engineering
  • industrial engineering
  • mechanical and materials engineering

In general, the obtained degrees are internationally recognized as equivalent to masters of science, for instance in the United States.[4]
