Studying or doing an internship abroad

IMT Lille Douai offers its students plenty of opportunities for trips abroad to acquire all the skills necessary for a successful international career.


The education at IMT Lille Douai includes validation of a semester abroad, on an internship or on an academic trip.

A third of the 2015 graduates chose to do one semester or more on an internship abroad. This immersion abroad in a professional environment is a key element of engineering education. It is a unique opportunity to discover a new culture and a new way of life, to broaden your mind and perfect your knowledge of international languages.

Although Europe is still the favourite destination, students can also go to the United States, China, Australia or South Africa.

IMT Lille Douai helps engineering students look for internships on a daily basis by providing them with the contact details of international companies likely to host them. The school organises themed workshops (writing CVs and personal statements in international languages, how to handle and track your applications, making follow-up telephone calls, etc.).

IMT Lille Douai also actively participates in the European Erasmus programme, thereby procuring financial support for students meeting the programme’s conditions in the form of scholarships, which takes care of travel expenses, accommodation costs, etc.
