International dimension

École des Ponts ParisTech has made internationalisation one of the priorities of its development strategy.

The now global competition between higher education institutions and the ever-growing mobility of knowledge and students, teachers and researchers, have prompted the School to implement a strategy focusing on four priorities:

  • Placing international mobility and language learning at the heart of its engineering degree programmes,
  • Developing strong institutional partnerships with the world's best universitiesby setting up double-degree agreements,
  • Opening our degree programmes to the best students from our partner universities, which now account for 1/4 of engineering degrees,
  • Joining prestigious networks (T.I.M.E., IDEA League) in order to give our courses a strong international reputation.
Key statistics
  • 53 partner universities in 32 countries on 4 continents
  • 33 double-degree agreements
  • 34 bilateral Erasmus agreements in 20 European countries
  • 32% international students on the campus
  • 48 nationalities represented
  • 1 year on average spent abroad by engineering students
  • 9 foreign languages taught
