Admission requirements

At Supméca, we take the greatest care in welcoming the students and teachers-researchers of our partners.

 

Therefore, we offer logistical assistance for all the necessary procedures and formalities, as well as housing searches. Free French courses are open to non-French speaking students of all levels.

 

Several study options are available:

  • Exchange students from the ERASMUS + or ARFITEC programmes or certain bilateral agreements can spend 1 or 2 semesters at Supméca to follow our courses and/or to carry out a project or internship.
  • Exchange students can pursue a double-degree programme in the frame of a specific bilateral agreement.
  • Individual applications that are not related to a specific programme or partnership are possible, but not encouraged.

Common efforts are also carried out with our partners in the POLYMECA network (SUPMÉCA, ISAE-ENSMA, ENSMM, ENSIAME, ENSEIRB Matméca, ENSTA-Bretagne, SEATECH and ENSCI) in order to share our resources and ultimately reinforce the attractiveness of our institutions.
