Visiting Students


Students from an engineering partner school or a partner university may be admitted as guest students into one or more courses of the third year / M2 catalog (excluding the harmonization block). The following procedure must be imperatively and scrupulously respected in order to allow access the school, to follow courses and to be able to sit for exams.

Please note for this academic year (2020-2021) that due to the health crisis, the building capacities may be reduced. It is also essential to complete the administrative formalities in time to be able to organize the courses according to the general protocol (espcially with the necessary distancing). Please do not contact the professors directly: questions about room gauging are managed by the direction of graduate studies.
