US Global High Education Association “AACRAO” acknowledges that French Engineering Schools provide students with a a level of education comparable to a Master’s Degree in Engineering in the United States
This is great news for French Engineers! In December 2012, an AACRAO team of international experts met with members of CAMPUSFRANCE, a French national agency which promotes higher education and international student mobility, as well as officials and educators involved in engineering education. The meeting revolved around the AACRAO EDGE database’s credential advice regarding French education. The conversations focused largely on engineering education in France – specifically the engineering grande ecoles which are the elite system of schools that exist alongside the university sector in French higher education. According to EDGE accreditations, French “Diplôme d’Ingénieur” has been described as comparable to the U.S. Bachelor of Science in Engineering. This time is over, and this will reduce the complexity to obtain a job or a visa, or the possibility to do a PhD.
