Newsletter, India


Networkn+i” Engineering Institutes is a consortium of 70 Graduate Engineering Schools from France and is a non-profit making association, representing French Engineering Institutes under the Ministry of French Higher Education  since the plast 15 years. 

Network n+i” has been actively present in India since 2004 and has seen a steady growth in the number of Indian students opting for Engineering Masters degree courses from France. It offers students not only an opportunity for securing multiple admissions  to study Masters in Engineering in prestigious French engineering colleges through a user friendly single  online application but also the program is unique in its offering of a comprehensive range of services: namely, the organisation of a "Success Program" comprising the Package for Cultural integration for Linguistic integration and for Methodological integration for students, including assistance with  insurance, accommodation, coaching and tutoring of students, organisation of forums, national transfers,  and so forth.


Network “n+i” has developed partnerships with some of the best universities globally and also in India for student exchange programs based on reciprocity at both the bachelor and master level. Its most recent collaboration has focussed on developing double degree programs” between French & Indian engineering institutes at masters level. The curriculum and credits for the two years masters from both the respective institutes are studied in detail and a consensus amongst partnering institutes reached.

The students benefit from both sides and they get not only the French and the Indian degree, but also multi-cultural exposure and an added advantage of learning a new foreign language Making them better prepared for deployment in multicultural organisations in the new global order.


The Delhi Technological University ( DTU) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Network “n+i” for a Double Masters in Signal & Image Processing.  The MOA was signed in the presence of the Ambassador of France to India Mr François RICHER, the President of Network “n+i” Mr Alain AYACHE and the Vice-Chancellor of DTU Prof. PB SHARMA at the recently held India-France Technology Summit 2013 on 23 October 2013.


The student exchange under this agreement foresees student mobility between the  DTU and  two institutes that are part of the N+I network viz, ENSEEIHT – (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Electrotechnique, d'Electronique, d'Informatique et d'Hydraulique de  Toulouse) and  Ecole Polytechnique Universitaire de Nantes.


During the Indo French Technology Summit, the Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS)-Pilani also signed an Memorandum of Understanding with Network “n+i”. The six months student exchange program foresees academic mobility between BITS & French engineering institutes at both bachelor & master degree level. The interest to further enhance the academic relationship is to develop a double degree program in the field of Electronic systems for embedded and communicating applications.
