The several taught subjects are strongly supported by experimental and practical classes. At the same time, students’ potential is channeled with the spirit of entrepreneurship, teamwork, out-of-box thinking and technical expertise, key skills for a successful international career.
ISEP offers a wide range of syllabus in different fields of Engineering, and it serves approximately 6500 students distributed by 14 undergraduate and 12 master courses, which partially justifies the large attraction of international students.
