Bilateral exchange program for Incoming students

Come study at ESIEA

Bilateral exchange program

Hey there, potential exchange students! You probably know France for its culinary traditions (baguette, cheese, wine …), fashion and perfume, art museums and even … opportunities for romance!

But did you know that France is also a country with a longstanding tradition of science and engineering? Did you know that we have astronauts and famous companies in the games industry? Hip mathematicians and world famous pioneers in electronic music

Come join us and find out more at ESIEA Graduate School of Engineering!

If you are studying at one of ESIEA’s partner universities, you can apply as an exchange student under the terms of the bilateral agreement signed by our institutions.  We will be delighted to welcome you to one of our campuses!

ESIEA Graduate School of Engineering offers a 5-year program in Digital Sciences and Technologies leading to an engineering degree equivalent to a Master of Science.

Our entire program is offered in French on our Laval campus and in both English and in French on our Paris campus. If you are majoring in Computer Science, you are certain to find the program and campus that are right for you!
