The international students joining ENSMM in September 2015


Testimony of a "n+i" alumni: Cynthia AHUMADA – Special Prize of the "n+i" competition of testimonies 2015.

“Coming in ENSMM is the best thing for me. In ENSMM I can improve my skills in Mechanics and discover the French culture.

The ENSMM provides me tools for developing my study project in France. State of the art technical facilities in different fields of engineering science are available in the different laboratories of ENSMM where research projects can be conducted. Lectures are very interesting and the teaching staff is well qualified and available for helping students.

I feel I am very well integrated in ENSMM. The social student life is dynamic and the student associations propose very varied activities: robotics, salsa, sports.

I am very happy to study here and I recommend coming to ENSMM. So, see you soon!”

On behalf of the Network "n+i" and its members, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families affected by these heinous acts.

After first targeting institutions representing our freedom of expression, this time public places, symbols of joy and conviviality, were targeted. It is clear that beyond these blind attacks on young people, it is our entire way of life that is now under attack.

Our values of humanism, universalism, tolerance, and democracy are targeted because they disturb these obscurantist fanatics.

In the face of this totalitarian threat, we must respond with Education and its results: the knowledge of others, openness, objective analysis, autonomy of thought that leads to more tolerance, understanding, and compassion.

I thank all our foreign partners, with whom fruitful academic cooperation is possible, for their expression of sympathy, support, and compassion.

Together, we must stand tall and lead the way for all who refuse to accept bullying, ideological terror, and who believe in our values of freedom, equality, and fraternity.

Jean-Pierre Trotignon, Executive Director of Network "n+i"

I joined the 4th cursus year and I was immediately welcomed by students and professors, willing to listen to us.

I have mainly enjoyed the exchanges between students and teachers during courses and to combine theoretical classes with practical work with the aim of encouraging students to be curious, creative and flexible.

Moreover, at ESTACA, the main part of professors and engineers in operation, their classes are more realistic and opened on industry. It’s also a real chance to visit industrial sites and to be assisted to develop our own professional project.

In China, I would never had such an practical experience within my studies!”

I am enrolled in the Master Petroleum Geology at Polytechnics Institute LaSalle Beauvais.

I chose LaSalle Beauvais because of the quality of the education in Petroleum Geology which is very good.
The added-value of my stay at LaSalle Beauvais apart from the studies will be to easily adapt to new environments and situations.

At LaSalle Beauvais I especially appreciated the support from and the exchanges with the teachers and students who are very kind.
Some advice I can give to other Asian students is to well prepare and anticipate their research for an internship placement since this can be sometimes difficult for foreign students.
