The IMT Atlantique partnership

On January 2, 2017, ENSTA Bretagne and IMT Atlantique signed a partnership agreement in the presence of Mr Jean-Yves Le Drian, the then Minister of Defense. The two establishments are setting up a major engineering cluster of excellence. Practical and unprecedented collaborations are being developed with respect to training, research and entrepreneurship, to offer even more science tracks, at the national and international level.

ENSTA Bretagne and IMT Atlantique are two top-tier schools of general engineering that complement each other and have partnered up. Their graduates are sought after by companies in a broad range of sectors both in France and around the world.

The partnership agreement boosts student mobility, provides them with new gateways to either school’s programs to complete their training, offers them access to more conferences and industry forums, promotes joint curricular and extracurricular projects, etc.
