 Study abroad programs with the award of a degree (FAE)

Double Engineering Degree (DD):

The DD label is a European “trademark” implying that a partnership agreement exists between the institutions involved. It is a guarantee of the strong mutual trust on which the relationship between these institutions is built.

Télécom ParisTech students have the opportunity to study abroad through DD programs at 48 institutions around the world. These programs enable students to earn a degree from both Télécom ParisTech and the host university.
For students to earn a degree from the host university, they must spend at least 18 months abroad. This period may either be entirely devoted to study or include study and internship periods in the host country.
Students may earn a degree provided that they have successfully completed their program in the foreign institution from which they will also receive a degree and that they have fulfilled all the academic requirements at Télécom ParisTech.

Master's programs

You may study abroad through a Master’s program at a partner or non-partner university. This usually takes the form of a degree program ranging from 12 to 24 months of study. As with the DD programs, Master’s programs include studies and projects or internships. If you obtain the required credits, you will receive a degree from both Télécom ParisTech and your host university.

Please be aware that if the program is not offered through a partner university, you will have to bear the costs.

Study abroad programs without the award of a degree

As part of a non-diploma course abroad, Telecom Paristech students may choose to complete one or two semesters at a university or a partner school.

One semester
Spend an academic semester at one of our many international partner universities. You must obtain 30 ECTS credits from the foreign university during your semester abroad (as outlined in the school regulations). Your studies will be supervised by a Télécom ParisTech research professor in connection with your study track (“academic advisor”).
The students concerned by this section must complete an engineering internship, either before or after their study abroad period. If this internship is carried out once students have returned to France and represents the final requirement before they may graduate, the internship may not exceed a period of 24 weeks.
Two semesters
You must obtain 60 ECTS credits, which must include approximately 30-course credits and 30 final project, thesis, or internship credits, with one of these activities being carried out at the host institution. In addition, once they have completed their study abroad period, students who wish to do so may carry out an internship of their choice which may not exceed 24 weeks, provided that they have not already completed an engineering internship or completed a year-long internship before studying abroad (see school regulations).

Internships

Télécom ParisTech’s engineering students may also choose to carry out internships abroad during their studies. Among the compulsory internships that can be done internationally: the human training course in first year and the engineering internship that usually closes training.

Summer internship (1 to 3 months)

During the summer between their second and third years, students have the opportunity to go abroad, which may count towards their mobility requirement. Projects must be approved by the Dean of Studies and the Director of International Relations. Preferred forms of mobility include internships in laboratories or companies and study abroad programs (e.g. Summer School).

 

Final project internship

To complete the engineering training at Télécom ParisTech, a “project” internship must be carried out. For a period of six months, this internship can be done in a research laboratory or in a company. This internship can be done abroad as part of the compulsory international mobility during the course.
