The « n+» Master's

The “n+” master’s = French Diplôme d’Ingénieur

Studying at a Grande Ecole d’ingénieur means graduating with the prestigious diplôme d’ingénieur, which we define as the “n+” Master’s degree:
 
In France, engineering studies are highly prized and culminate in a master’s degree that is only awarded by the CTI, the national commission on engineering degrees.
 
The diplôme d’ingénieur is proof that a graduate has studied science and technology to a high level in a recognised establishment. As well as the scientific core, the diplôme d’ingénieur includes training in human and social sciences as well as company life (business law and legislation etc.), proficiency in a foreign language and internships in industrial companies etc.
 
Internships and visits to production sites are part of the training.  
 
The French diplôme d’ingénieur (“n+” Master’s) prepares graduates for project management, team management and company management (many CEOs or company directors are trained engineers).
Due to the demanding nature, high standard and international renown of this degree, we describe it as a Master’s with Honours. We call it the “ n+ Master’s”.
 
In France, engineering degrees:
NoteForeign students are awarded exactly the same degree as their French counterparts.
The “n+” master cannot be obtained in under 18 months.
Graduates can apply for their visa to be extended by 6 months after graduation to enable them to seek employment and if they are successful, a work permit.

The level of French on the “n+” Master’s courses
The “n+” course is mainly taught in French. That is why the “n+i” network offers French language lessons during the linguistic and methodology Integration packages. The B1 level of French language tests is required at the end of the first part of a Master’s course (M1a, end of PIM) and B2 level is required to pass the final stages of the course (end of M2).

The level of English in Master “n+”
Students are also required to reach a minimum level of B2 in English in order to pass the “n+” Master’s.
 
NB: See the “i” international master’s.
