Grenoble Institute of Technology and China strive for excellence in materials science
Jiao Tong University, one of China’s best, has teamed up with Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma to provide elite materials science training. Every year the Shanghai-based school sends around ten of its brightest engineering students to Grenoble to complete the second and third year of their degree programs, with a focus on materials science. After obtaining a degree from Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma, they return to Jiao Tong to complete their Master’s programs.
This initiative was designed in association with French companies operating in China; these companies not only supply in-company projects for the Chinese students, but also provide Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma students with year-long internships in China.
