IMT’s ambitions for the future are perhaps best expressed in our four major strategic priorities:
In order to train the young engineers and managers who will play a key role in France’s future, the Institut works to design and develop educational techniques and systems which are tailored to the demands of the modern market, while continuing to increase the diversity of our student body and constantly update our course programs in order to keep pace with the times. Among the ten priority objectives outlined in our future strategy, two of the most important are: the development of shared educational systems backed by innovative teaching methods and cutting-edge technologies; and greater recognition and promotion of apprenticeship-based professional training programs.
The Institut is a major player in a number of academic domains: energy, natural resources and the environment, materials and structures, ICT and digital, economics, management and human and social sciences; this unique position is bolstered further by our recognized expertise in the fields of healthcare and intelligent transport. The Institut is thus uniquely well-placed to provide responses to the scientific and technical demands of our rapidly-changing society. Among the ten priority objectives outlined in our future strategy, several involve inter-disciplinary initiatives structured around the major issues facing contemporary society.
Our strategic development plain aims to put the unique strengths and expertise of the Institut at the disposal of innovative businesses, particularly SMEs and midcaps, using our national network of schools and partners to help these businesses make the step up to the international market, while also encouraging our students to contribute to the competitiveness of SMEs and midcaps. Among the ten priority objectives outlined in our future strategy, one of the most important is our commitment to expanding our bilateral partnerships with SMEs and midcaps.
The Institut must have a substantial international presence and reputation. This international standing will need to be maintained by enlarging the pool of talent from which we recruit our students. One of the ten priority objectives outlined in our future strategy is a commitment to recruit more international students, increasing the diversity of our student body andopening up even more opportunities for international mobility.
