A ministerial decree from the Ministry of National Education on January 21 1970, modified on May 22 1992, states that the IIE will offer an engineer degree.

1972 : diploma Recognition

ENSIIE degree was recognised by the Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs (CTI) in 1972, and the apprenticeship program was recognised in 1994. Since 1974, admission has been principally based on the Concours Centrale-SupElec. The intake was originally 25 per year, which progressively increased to over 60 in 1984 and 75 in 1985. The decision to increase the number of places to 135 was taken in 1988.

1973 : Alumni Association A3IE

Since 1973, IIE alumni have joined into the Association des Ingénieurs A3IE, whose role is to promote the degree, facilitate contacts between its members and contribute to the creation of an active, dynamic information network between ENSIIE and the business world.

1984 : iie Moves to Évry

The number of engineers awarded a diploma until 2011 is of 2800.IIE was initially based at CNAM in Paris, rue Saint Martin. Since 1984, the school has moved in the centre of Évry, between the City hall and the Prefecture, close to the train station of Évry-Courcouronnes (RER D).

2011 : Institut Mines Télécom Partner Institution

In September 2011 ENSIIE became a partner institution of l’Institut Mines-Telecom. ENSIIE’s integration into the largest group of engineering institutions specialised in information and communication technology and computing guarantees ENSIIE national and international influence.
