Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school came in nineteenth in the overall rankings in L’Étudiant magazine’s 2019 survey of 174 engineering schools, climbing five slots over the previous year.
Phelma tied with the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique in the academic excellence category. The school’s stellar results were due in part to the large number of faculty members that hold state-sanctioned research directorships.
The school’s international activities have also expanded. The student body counted 98 international students, up from 70 the previous year. A total of 124 students earned dual degrees from international partner schools up from 94 in 2018.
And, in terms of career placement, Phelma came in second in the ICT and energy industries, with median annual salaries between €36K and €40K. Finally, the school has also increased diversity and strengthened corporate relations through non-traditional admissions processes and work-study programs.
