International partnerships and exchange programs

International partnerships

The École des Mines de Saint-Étienne has developed more than 120 partnerships selected for their excellence in engineering with international universities in order to promote student exchanges at master or doctorate level and staff mobility.

Partnership agreements rests on a good mutual knowledge between École des Mines and foreign institutions, a good communication, as well as a high level of studies and an easy integration. With 20 prestigious and top ranked academic partners, École des Mines has developed dual degree programs giving some students the opportunity to obtain the master of engineering of Mines Saint-Étienne and the master of engineering of their home institution.

International exchange programs

  • Erasmus Plus
    Mines Saint-Étienne has been part of the ERASMUS program since it started. Our first exchanges with European partners began rather modestly, but soon increased rapidly enabling students to benefit from an international experience. The number of European incoming students coming is still growing as they particularly appreciate our wide variety of courses, our emphasis on working in small groups and the closeness of student-teacher relationships (ratio 1/7).
