Or why not enrol on a course leading to a qualification such as our double diploma in Spain, Germany or do a Master of Science in England, in Canada or the USA?

The scope of our network of industrial or research and development partners and the university science departments with which we have had special links for over 20 years will be equal to your motivation and your work.

We invite you to travel the world with appropriate educational supervision and recognition thanks to the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credit system we use at CPE Lyon and to other systems in use in North America that we validate for your diploma.

The International Relations team and the Department of Languages will offer guidance.
