The international, a strategic priority

The development of a strong international dimension at Telecom SudParis is an essential component of our academic strategy.

Our research teams are involved in scores of multinational research projects, while our extensive network of industrial partners provides students with opportunities for international internships and professional experience.

We are keenly aware that a truly international center of learning requires much more than just student exchanges and academic partnerships.

Our graduates are entering a professional environment which is ever more international and cosmopolitan, an environment where their capacity for cross-border cooperation and global management will be essential to the success of their careers.

To perform efficiently in today's global market, with its fluid, constantly-evolving communication systems, modern IT professionals need advanced language skills and cultural understanding. This is why all of the programs offered at Telecom SudParis incorporate a strong international dimension.


Our students are required to develop a high level of competency in two foreign languages; courses in intercultural awareness and international management are an integral part of our programs and a minimum of three months' experience in a foreign country is a compulsory part of the core engineering curriculum.

And of course, Telecom SudParis attracts students from all over the world, for everything from exchange semesters to doctoral research projects, not forgetting our predominantly English-language Master of Science programs - ideally suited to postgraduates from foreign universities.
