Telecom SudParis, School of Digital Engineers, a response to the stakes of companies

Christophe Digne

Telecom SudParis, established in 1979 as the Institut national des télécommunications (INT), is a Grande École of the Institut Mines-Télécom. Our ambition is to "train women and men of all origins, builders of the digital society, and contribute to its construction through teaching and research excellence, sources of innovation and economic and social value".

Unique strength: a unique partnership with a management school

Télécom SudParis shares its campus located near Paris with Telecom Business School. The symbiosis between the two schools, unrivaled in France, helped to shape their own identity. It is a singular force in the many dimensions of their teaching, research and innovation missions and a major asset for their graduates.

A pioneer in project-based pedagogy and the development of entrepreneurial spirit, Telecom SudParis forms:
