Back to Welcome Day
A time to exchange and share
- International cooperation
- Life at ParisTech
The 2014 Welcome Day, a welcome evening for the international students recruited by ParisTech, was held on 9 October at Arts et Métiers ParisTech. This event brought together nearly 80 incoming students.
Elisabeth Crépon, Director of ENSTA ParisTech and responsible for the ParisTech International Committee, presided over the ceremony. She took the opportunity to confirm that the Institute's policy will continue to strive for excellence. This concept is applied with respect to its lecturers, researchers, and foreign partners, but also in the selection of its students.
Many stakeholders took part in the event. Among them were representatives from the Brazilian, Chinese, and Russian embassies, who all expressed the support of their respective country for ParisTech's international programmes. Former students from the co-ordinated recruitment programmes in Brazil and China talked about their experience in France and in the ParisTech Grandes Écoles.
Jean-Luc Clément, from the delegation for International and European Relations and Co-operation from the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education, and Research was also present, and expressed the support of his ministry for the international activities of French institutions.
