Incoming

Welcome to the school of Environmental Management and Engineering.

 

EME is one of France’s Grandes Ecoles, but we have a very human dimension and strive to make all our students feel at home.  EME has programs taught in English, in order to be more attractive to foreign students who want to spend a semester in France, but do not speak French.

EME has recently added Environmental Engineering courses taught in English at the Master level, so Erasmus and free-mover students can take up to 30 ects in either the fall or spring semester.  The MSc in Sustainable Management and Eco Innovation is taught entirely in English.

Undergraduate level courses at EME are principally taught in French.  Degree seeking students will take courses mostly in French, but will have many courses taught in English during the first year of the Master level.  Degree seeking students from abroad should go through Campus France for administrative purposes.
