An Example of Strategy for International Partnership in Engineering Education through Two Different Double Degree Programs: Ten Years of Experiment in Europe and Overseas, 1987-1997.
Depeyre, Dominique; Grimm, Daniel
Ecole Centrale Paris has developed two different types of double degree programs since 1987. The Top Industrial Managers for Europe Program (TIME) allows French and foreign students to obtain two engineering degrees, each for a nominal study period of 5-6 years after high school graduation. Thirty-one technical universities in 14 European countries belong to the TIME network. Another double degree program works with industrialized countries whose educational system is based on the North American organization; that is, with an intermediate degree, the Bachelor's degree, before the Master's degree. There are 25 Technical Universities in four countries in this program. After some general information on these two double degree engineering programs, some figures are discussed regarding the origin of students while presenting some advantages of this new way of international engineering studies. The impact of these two programs on industrial recruitment will be seen through the kinds of jobs, the location of jobs, and the types of companies they effect. Some comments are included on this 10-year experience and on projects for the future. (SAH)
