Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Sep 30, 2016
* Context and objectives
The vision of ESIEE-Amiens is to become the leading engineering school with regards to electrical engineering for the transport and building sectors. Given the fact that the international dimension of these markets is a predominant factor, the acculturation of our students and teaching staff is of great importance.
The main objectives of our international policy are:
- to maintain the rate of 50% of graduates having spent a minimum of 3 months abroad, with the aim of increasing this to 100% in the medium term, possibly by making international mobility mandatory. ;
- to strengthen a) our partnerships in our target countries including Europe, Brazil, Chile, South Africa and b) in terms of our specialties and areas of
expertise : Advanced Manufacturing Systems , Electrical Networks and Sustainable Development and Computer Networks and Telecommunications ;;
- to maintain these current agreements and mutual exchanges, and notably our Erasmus network which was developed from the partnerships
established by ESIEE-Paris over 30 years ago ;
- to develop cooperation in relation to research and development projects ;
- to create networks of good teaching practices and to implement these at summer schools and specialisation semesters.
This project has allowed the majority of these objectives to be reached.
All of our students and teaching and administrative staff are informed of the opportunities to work and study abroad through Erasmus.
In the academic year 2015/16, 15 students benefited from this programme, 9 of whom completed a project / internship. In 2014/15, 20 students benefited from this programme, 10 of whom completed a project/internship.
No members of staff took part.
* Activities undertaken
- Internships in companies and universities abroad
- Study placements at universities abroad
* Results and impact
Students have become more open-minded and have developedan intercultural approach to working relationships which will enable them to respond more effectively to an international working environment in the future. These experiences were shared with all students and have therefore aroused an interest in working and studying abroad. The report written by the students when they return is also a rich and useful source of information.
The project has contributed to the international dimension of the school, an essential criterion for obtaining the CTI accreditation (Commission des Titres
d’Ingénieurs) of our establishment.
* Long-term benefits
- The school’s ranking in specialised reviews
- Research development
- Projects supported by the regional council concerning common target countries.
