More than 200 schools of engineering, public and private, run the gamut of engineering sciences. But they also have some common characteristics, emblematic of the solid quality of the Titre d’ingénieur, a venerable French degree that is fully equivalent to the European master.
The Titre d’ingénieur, Master grade, is a national diploma that entitles its holder to apply to a doctoral program. The degree may indicate general expertise in engineering or more specialized study—in agronomy, chemistry, biology, or information science, for example.
Public schools of engineering charge tuition of approximately €610 per year.
