Entry requirements

To be admitted into Year 1 (at two years of post-secondary study), students must have completed two years of preparatory courses (science-track or Institute of Technology common preparatory program) or have earned an undergraduate degree from a university (in France, mainly DUT or L2).

Admission into Year 2 as a regular student for the two-year curriculum is open to foreign candidates holding a bachelor's degree. This leads to the French degree Diplôme d'Ingénieur Grenoble INP - Ensimag (Master of Science in Engineering).
It is also open to exchange and double-degree students from Ensimag's partner universities.

Elective semester
Semester 9 can be completed in one of two cross-disciplinary programs that concern all majors:

Semester 10

The semester 10, the last of the final year of studies is dedicated to the Graduation Project and associated internship (30 ECTS credits) which can be performed either in a research laboratory or in industry. 

Through this final project, the student, as a full-time member of a working team, is able to synthesize the knowledge he or she has acquired and put it into practice in a professional context. The student is involved in a full-scale project. The results are presented in a project report to a committee made up of professionals and Ensimag Faculty members.

Board of examiners

Each semester is worth 30 ECTS credits, spread out over the different courses completed. Students must obtain a grade of at least 10/20 in each course to obtain the credits.


  • Language of instruction Mainly French, occasionally with slides in English. A few courses may be offered in English. French language competence is required.
  • Internship abroad Yes
  • Erasmus areas Mathematics, Statistiques, Computer science
