CTI’s missions include the evaluation of engineering programmes abroad.

These evaluation activities can take two forms:

  • Accreditation procedure in view of recognition of the degree in France (“admission par l’Etat”), which gives graduates from the relevant degree programmes the title of graduate & professional engineer “ingénieur diplômé” in France.
  • Evaluation procedure with the aim to obtain the EUR-ACE® Master’s Label. This can be done separately or coincide with the accreditation procedure for national recognition.

If you plan to apply for both procedures, please visit the website page for “Admission par l’Etat” leading to the recognition of foreign engineering degrees in France.

This page adresses the procedure for the EUR-ACE® Label only.

You will find all information and the procedure’s description in the following document: Evaluation procedure for obtaining the EUR-ACE® Master’s Label .

Once the label has been obtained, HEIs must observe the following:


Prior to a first evaluation process of a foreign institution, there is an admissibility phase in order to check that the scope of the application and a few major criteria are in line with the CTI’s missions.

Two Admissibility Committee meetings are organized in 2023-2024. The application deadlines are: October 21st 2023 & April 1st 2024.

Download the Admissibility file; it gives you access to :

  • Word and Excel documents to fill in
  • Information on fees for evaluation procedures abroad

The application for admissibility may be sent to the CTI as soon as the programme is functioning for a few years and the first class of students has graduated. If the application is declared admissible, it will be included in an upcoming CTI’s annual evaluation campaign.

For any request and application:
