    Set up near the French Nevers/Magny-Cours F1 circuit (2 hour drive from Paris), the student/future automotive engineer will work on innovative projects with the motorsport SMEs & major automotive manufacturing companies, consultant organisations as well as suppliers. Additionally, other career opportunities may be found as academic researchers in automotive engineering education thanks to a close network of 4 Research Centres and 2 public-private research laboratories.

    Located in a large and open campus, Polytech'Orléans (one hour drive from Paris) is an engineering faculty and engineering school that provides an extensive range of courses at degree and postgraduate level in the areas of engineering and technology. Polytech'Orléans is thoroughly involved in automotive research topics such as new engine concepts, energy management, aerodynamics in partnership with leading car manufacturers and suppliers.

    France requirements for international students

    France propose a world-class higher education institutions in an international environment. The application process for international students is exactly the same as it is for french students but it's indispensable to contact with a platform “Etude in France” and the regional department of “Campus France” (a public institution in charge of promoting higher education and managing the reception and international mobility of students).

    Higher education is thus provided by two main types of institution: universities and "grandes écoles". «Grandes écoles» are the most reputable of the French education system. To win admission students get in by competitive examination, the institutions are relatively small, and classes in them small too. French universities are open to all “bacheliers”, or a student whom has passed their baccalaureate, and it's also easier to apply for the university program. 

    It is necessary to point out that the European local or an international student have to complete the application process in its entirety,  as well as submit all documentation at the time of submission so the procces suit to the ground for the students all over the world. Students are eligible for grants and other financial assistance from the governement to support study in France.


    Bachelor´s degree in mechanics, materials, electronics, applied mathematics, mechanics, physics or a similar field. Applicants must present evidence of the required degrees as part of the application procedure. Students participating in a European exchange programme may be admitted to postgraduate courses within the framework of their own curriculum, and will be assessed under the same conditions as French students.Language competence: The programme is taught in English and candidates must meet the required standards. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550


    ISAT Institut Supérieur de l'Automobile et des Transports and Polytech'Orléans open their co-accredited "Master in Automotive Engineering for Sustainable Mobility ".
