The number one group of engineering and management graduate schools in France
IMT supports innovation and business development. It provides the economy with 12.300 freshly-trained engineers, managers and doctors.
A number comparable to major American universities such as MIT and Stanford.
IMT has also formed close ties with 12 partner institutions, known as affiliated schools.
4,100 degrees are awarded each year and 90 % of graduates go straight into permanent work contracts (figures excluding the affiliated schools).
Our schools form a powerful group, complementing each other and working cohesively together. Our strength is founded on a shared vision to:
- train graduates for businesses,
- develop the economy and France’s territories,
- contribute to innovation and entrepreneurship.
These activities are rolled out in areas linked to the major digital, energy, industrial and educational transitions underway.
The quality of IMT’s partner-orientated research is recognized by 2 Carnot Institute labels, (M.I.N.E.S and Carnot Télécom & société numérique) awarded in 2006 and renewed in 2011.
The research concerns projects that involve IMT research teams and its socioeconomic partners (businesses, associations, local authorities, etc.). This is a major focus of IMT’s Research and Innovation strategy.
Partner-orientated research takes many forms:
- Contractual research
- Collaborative research
- Technology transfer
Academic leader in supporting innovation and entrepreneurship
- IMT has a network of 11 incubators attached to its schools, across the entire French territory. They develop entrepreneurship awareness-raising and training programs. As a result, the incubated startups are characterized by a strong technological core and an outstanding 3-year survival rate of 89%.The schools’ incubators benefit from the nationwide dynamics created by IMT and have access to a number of complementary services alongside those in their region:
IMT fosters the production of value-creating research: every year, 37 patents are filed and 1,833 top tier publications contribute to furthering scientific research and guarantee state-of-the-art teaching. 70,2 millions euros of contractual resources have come from this research.
1,120 researchers and 740 PhD students work in the fields of digital technologies, energy, materials, the environment, natural resources, economics, management and human sciences.
First MOOC creator in France
IMT and its schools are pioneers and leaders in France in Massive Open Online Courses, taught in English or French, notably in the fields of digital technologies, telecommunications, programming and engineering science.
IMT reaches beyond French borders (28,3% of students on the Master’s or PhD programs are from outside France) and sends its students to the best universities around the world.
In order to increase the number of non-Francophone students on their campuses and expose their students to a more international world, the IMT schools have developed programs taught in English.
These programs offer the opportunity for students to connect with highly qualified professors from IMT’s international partners and teacher-researchers from around the world.
As part of these programs, visiting professors often help to produce high-quality collaborative research.
