The 2015–2016 school year is the best yet for Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school. The school moved up the CCP admissions rankings between 60 and 230 slots, depending on the major. The CCP is a common entrance exam for France’s polytechnic institutes.
The incoming freshman class size is similar to the 2014–2015 class, with 358 students in initial degree programs and 12 in the integrated micro and nanoelectronics system design work-study program. A total of 258 freshmen (70% of the class) were admitted from preparatory programs, 46 came from the INP preparatory program, and 24 were admitted based on their previous degrees (bachelor’s or two-year technical degrees). In terms of gender parity, the situation remains virtually unchanged, with 23% women engineering students, down slightly from 26% in last year’s freshman cohort.
