Both training involve a large part of humanities, project and several industrial training (cumulated duration: 9 months). The last (3rd) year at ENSAIA is called Specialisation year.
12 Specialisations are proposed:
Ensaia's engineering training is also compatible with a Master in "Business Administration".
Note that most of the engineering specialisation might be coupled with an additional master i degree.
"i" Master degree
Duration: 2 years (after a 3-year Bachelor)
3 MSc. Degrees (with thesis):
1 International Master: Food Safety and Management (1 semester at ENSAIA, 1 semester at University College Dublin and 1 semester at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, + a 6 month industrial training period)
One professional Master Degree (i.e. without thesis) : Dairy Products is also proposed.
Nancy is a city of ancient history located in Lorraine, eastern France.
It is located at less than 90 minutes from: Paris, Strasburg, Luxemburg and Basel.
Nancy population is about 300 000 inhabitants + 50 000 Students in Université de Lorraine.
The weather is intermediate oceanic/continental (around -5 +5°C in winter and 25-35°C in summer)
Ensaia is attached to Research Centres for both fundamentals and applied Sciences and have a strong connection with industry to promote Innovation.
We have developped cooperation with the largest international Agro-Food (Lactalis, Danone, Nestlé, Unilever,...) and Non Agro-Food (BASF, Veolia, Sanofi, Bayer,...) companies but also with the surrounding small and medium-sized business.
Ensaia has developped an international policy for years especially for student exchanges.
In order to increase the number of its international degree student, Ensaia has joined the
"n+i" network in early 2009. We are welcoming between 4 and 6 n+i students each year coming from China, India, Mexico, Argentina,... In 2012, It has created, together with other n+i engineering schools of Université de Lorraine, its own Methodology Integration Package to optimize the integration of its n+i students.
n+i admission calendar is available on this n+i website.
Direct admission procedure for all degrees starts in March.
The deadline to apply for an admission is set to the 30th of April.
The admission consists in two steps : admission on records and an interview (by phone for student abroad).
The admission is notified in June.
The academic year starts in early Septembre.
B2 level in French is required for such a direct admission.
The tuition fees for degree students are mostly taken in charge by the French government.
There is therefore no scholarship for foreign students from the university but we are looking for scholarship for our n+i students, through the n+i or through our own network.
After taking into account the part of the training taken in charged by the French state, the tuition fees at for n+i students Ensaia ranges from 2300 € to 2900 € per year. It includes tutoring before arrival in Nancy as well as welcome events, tutoring by professors and students, French courses, visit of industrial facilities including transport, ... All costs include health insurance (which is compulsory for all students in France).
Students in Nancy can use all the facilities (sport, arts, party, events) of Université de Lorraine and all the activities in Nancy town (cinema, concert hall, theater,...)
On top of that, inside the school, students can register to the Student Board. They access all associations dedicated to extra-scholar activities (sport competition, music, games, comics, role playing... )
Ensaia\'s students organise major events of Eastern France every year :
Ensaia is somehow the AgroFood Department of its university. Its accomodates about 600 students.
About 200 students are graduated at Ensaia each year (180 in "n+" Master and 50 in "i" Master).
Ensaia has a long and strong experience in international exchanges.
In 2009, it joined the "n+i" network. It has accomodated its first "n+i"
student during 2009-2010. Since there, between 4 and 6 n+i students/year are welcome.
In addition, ENSAIA proposes a PIM package together with Engineering schools of Universté de Lorraine which are also member of the n+i network.
In addition to the n+i network, our school has about 40 international partner universities. We propose 3 double-degree programmes in Engineering and one triple-degree programme in Master (with UC Dublin, UP Valencia).
The list of all international partners of ENSAIA is available on our website. Note also that Ensaia also benefits from the international network of Université de Lorraine.
