IUT-Annecy (Spring Semester Only)

The semester-long International Electrical Engineering program is taught in the spring term and offers international and French students the opportunity to study in a region at the heart of Europe and close to Germany, Switzerland and Italy. The program meets the needs of students by offering them a tailored program that includes practical classes, tutorials and a project, combined with an 11-week for-credit internship at a local company, research laboratory, at CERN, or abroad. The program maintains a small class size of no more than 16 students. 

Université Savoie Mont Blanc offers a very wide range of bachelor's and master's courses taught in French and English. The university has now developed international semester programs offering academic study in English in some of the university’s key specialist areas. These are component parts of bachelor's and/or master's degrees taught in English, completed by credit-bearing courses in French as a foreign language. hese programs enable incoming foreign students to complete their academic disciplinary studies in English while improving their knowledge of French language expression and contemporary French society and culture.


ISEP students will live in a university residence hall and receive a meal stipend.
