Dual degrees (Degree-seeking students)
Students from double degree partner universities have the possibility to complete a double degree exchange in which they follow an Arts et Métiers degree programme and receive one degree from each university.
Moreover, engineering double degree students are eligible to apply for the integration week which takes place every year in our campus in Cluny. Application must be submitted through the online system when you fill in the application form requested for double degree admission. The integration week takes place last week of August, right before the beginning of fall Semester.
There are two types of dual degrees:
- The Double Degree in Engineering (“Diplôme d’ingénieur” FITE programme)
- The Double Degree Master’s programme
The Double Degree in Engineering (the FITE programme)
In order to become a double degree student you must be enrolled at a partner university with which Arts et Métiers has a double degree agreement for the Engineering programme.
As a double degree exchange student you are admitted to the last years of a five-year Engineering programme. Since Arts et Métiers is a “Grande École” only the last 3 years of the Engineering programme are taught here, our 1st year of studies corresponding to the last year of the Bachelor’s.
In order to obtain the Engineering degree you have to study at Arts et Métiers for a period no shorter than 2 years. For further information about the study scheme and plan, please contact the International office or your academic supervisor at your home university.
The FITE Engineering programme offers both general and specialized studies. Each year of study is divided into 2 semesters, each semester counts for 30 credits (ECTS).
The first 2 years offer mandatory core courses in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering where students acquire a solid background in Mechanics, Materials, Energetics, Manufacturing Processes, Electronics/Automatics, Industrial Organization. The 1st year courses are given in all our campuses except for Paris. The 2nd year courses are given in all our campuses. Courses start early September.
In the final year each student choses, among the 32 options offered, the one that suits him the most. During the 2nd semester of their final year students carry out a 6-month internship/placement in industry. Each option is taught in a specific campus. Most of the final year courses start late September, a few are available in January.
You can find more information about the Engineering programme on the French webpages.
In order to qualify you must have completed at least three years of the educational programme at your home university, with grades above average. The Engineering programme is entirely taught in French. In order to be admitted international students coming from non French-speaking countries must justify a B2 level in French, attested by a DELF.
After finishing their studies students are awarded the “Diplôme d’Ingénieur de l’École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers”. Our graduated students work in varied business areas such as: automotive, transport, energy, civil engineering, IT…
The Double Degree Master’s programme
In order to become a double degree student you must be enrolled at a partner university with which Arts et Métiers has a double degree agreement for the Master’s programme.
Arts et Métiers ParisTech offers over 20 high-level graduate programmes in the fields of Science and Technology organized into 4 subject areas: Biomedical Engineering/ Design, Industrialization, Risk and Decision-Making/ Fluids and Energy Systems/ Mechanics, Materials and Processes. Each programme is taught in a specific campus. Courses start mid-September or early October. More information is available on the webpage of each programme.
These are two year long courses and count for 120 credits (ECTS). As a double degree student you are admitted to the last year, counting for 60 credits (ECTS). During this year you take courses (1st semester) and carry out your master thesis (2nd semester). You follow a set study plan within one of the specializations mentioned in the Double degree agreement. For further information please contact the International office or your academic supervisor at your home university.
To be eligible you must have completed at least four years of the educational programme at your home university, with grades above average. Some of the Master’s programmes are taught in French, other in English. In order to be admitted you must have sufficient knowledge of the language the courses are taught in. The admission is subject to the approval of the programme Director.
After finishing their studies students are awarded the Diplôme National de Master.
