ENSIIE : Partner Institution
The new agreement between Institut Télécom and ENSIIE extends the areas of cooperation already existing for several years, for example with Télécom SudParis in training (co-accredited, specialised Masters) and in apprenticeship program (structuring of apprenticeship training), and in innovation (a joint centre of support for new businesses with Télécom SudParis and Télécom Management School). ENSIIE and the Évry campus of Institut Télécom also collaborate on a project to construct a “house of innovation” at Évry (MISS – Maison de l’Innovation, des Sciences et de la Société). This is expected to be completed in 2014.
A Stronger Partnership
This agreement develops exchange opportunities, both at a management level and regarding engineering pedagogy and research projects. This means that Institut Télécom will now play a role in the management of ENSIIE. New courses can be created and ENSIIE students will access to new exchanges possibilities with Institut Télécom partner institutions.
Research and Innovation
ENSIIE, like the other partner institutions, will be able to get involved in the Institut’s scientific activities. The researchers will be able to work together on issues being examined by the Institut such as the networks and media of the future, communicating devices, use of IT, etc., and they will also be able to work together to apply for ANR or PCRDT (Europe) projects.
Institut Télécom’s Partner Institutions : a Network of 6 Institutions in France and Tunisia
ENSIIE thus joins the Institut Télécom network of partner institutions which is made up of Télécom Saint-Etienne and ENSPS (Strasbourg) since 2008, and ENSEIRB-MATMECA (Bordeaux), INP-ENSEEIHT (Toulouse) and Sup’Com (Tunis) since 2012.
A Network of Excellence
According to Jean-Claude Jeanneret, general administrator of Institut Télécom, “The Institut’s strategy is to build a national network of excellence to consolidate its position as a key player in French higher education and research in the digital field. This strategy gives added value to our training courses and qualifications and greater visibility to our training and research potential, both nationally and internationally.”
