In a globalized economy, the careers of engineers trained at ESITC Paris must be internationally oriented. This dimension has been integrated into the curriculum: language courses, cultural trips, compulsory period abroad during the engineering cycle, either in an internship or in a partner university (semester or full year of studies are set up so that students can, if they wish, build their international project). ESITC Paris school organize a full semester in English. Thus, the courses and projects of the second semester of the 4th year are, in part, taught in English and can also accommodate foreign students. In the 5th year, a cultural project is offered to students who have obtained the TOEIC who so wish. The intensive TOEIC preparation courses remain compulsory for those who have failed. ESITC Paris is member of ECEM-ECM (European Civil Engineering Management and European Construction Management). This association has made it possible to develop and improve the mobility of students, teachers and administrative staff with our European partners for more than 20 years.
Modern Language teaching
For the first 4 years of the programme, engineering students take courses in two living languages for 1.5 to 2 hours a week per language: English and German, Spanish or Italian by choice.
Considering the importance of English in the international professional exchanges that await our engineers, each ESITC student must meet a minimum English requirement by scoring at least 785 points on the TOEIC test (Test of English for International Communication). This is the level recommended by the CTI accreditation organization. The test evaluates the aptitude of non-English speakers to communicate in English in professional situations.
