Go. For a few weeks or a year. In Europe or the rest of the world. It’s all about opening up to the world, understanding it better and taking your first steps in your international career. These are some of the many reasons why training at IMT Lille Douai includes the validation of a semester abroad, as an internship or an academic stay.

International double degrees

IMT Lille Douai engineering students have the opportunity to spend their last year abroad and, for a semester or an additional year, to obtain a degree from the partner school or university. These exchanges are validated by the European ECTS standards system (European Credit Transfer System) or by the equivalent system in the country.

Why did you do a double degree, and particularly in Canada, at ETS? After a 3-year foundation degree and 2 years in engineering school, it was great to be able to add another 18 months of studies! I discovered a love of aeronautics. I also love the great outdoors, wild life, and checked shirts. ETS is the school that offered the best compatibility with my profile. What does this experience bring you both professionally and personally? Well, from a professional point of view, it's obvious: 2 degrees including one from a Quebec university in aeronautics. On a personal level, it's even clearer. I have already learned here what engineer I want to be and what person I want to become. When we compare the reactions of the French and the Quebecois ... How set in our ways we are! In this country, I can be myself. All my French friends in Canada are happy

Internships abroad

This immersion in a professional and international context allows you to develop your open-mindedness, perfect your knowledge of foreign languages and build your career as an engineer. Although Europe remains the preferred destination for students, you can also choose to go to the United States, China, Australia or even South Africa…

IMT Lille Douai also actively participates in the European program Erasmus, with financial support in the form of grants to cover, in particular, travel and accommodation costs.

Academic stays around the world

Over 60 of the most prestigious schools and universities (Imperial College of Science, GeorgiaTech Institute of Technology, The Bonch-Bruevich St Petersburg State University of Telecommunications, Hohai University, etc.) are partners of IMT Lille Douai. This academic stay can be taken from the 2nd semester of L3. It is validated by the European ECTS standards system (European Credit Transfer System) or by the equivalent system in the country. 

This semester of studies has been an excellent opportunity for me. The thing I loved the most was the opportunity it gave me to travel to a foreign country, discover its culture and learn in a different way. Classes were taught by professionals who were very attentive, and these were followed by practical lessons where we had to implement what we learned by creating projects. The school's sports complex has many facilities including tennis courts, swimming pool, gym, basketball courts, and more. So much is put in place to give international students the chance for travel and exchanges
