The 2012 first-year cohort at Phelma—Grenoble Institute of Technology’s engineering school—counts 353 students, with approximately half in each of the two core curricula: 174 students in Materials Engineering and Processes; and 179 students in Physics, Electronics, and Telecommunications.
The percentage of students admitted based on prior degrees increased from 9% in 2011 to 11% in 2012, reflecting the school’s policy of opening admissions to students not coming up through the traditional preparatory school channels. The number of students from the integrated preparatory programs remained steady at around 30.
The school fell around a hundred slots in the competitive entrance exam rankings, but this is simply a technical effect of the big Paris schools’ decision to significantly increase the number of students they admit.
