The CIT, or Commission des titres de l’ingénieur, which oversees France’s state-sanctioned engineering degree programs, has chosen Grenoble for its next annual meeting. The event will kick off on February 10 with an international colloquium to be attended by representatives of US accreditation organizations ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) and AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers). These special guests are particularly relevant this year, as France’s engineering degrees were recently recognized as equivalent to the US Masters of Science.
And on February 11, a national colloquium will be held at MINATEC on the role of France’s engineering schools in the country’s reformed higher education and research landscape. The colloquium will also feature discussions about the future of the profession (“Engineering in 2024”).
