Foreign engineering universities may be evaluated and accredited by CTI, either because they have strong partnerships with French institutions, and/or because they want to benefit from the CTI expertise and to improve their level of international recognition.
Foreign institutions may ask the French State for the official recognition of their curricula that have been positively assessed by CTI. This recognition implies an official agreement between the two governments.
The first step is the accreditation by CTI according to the procedure based on its standards fitted to the academic and industrial context of the concerned country.
The list of accredited foreign engineering degrees is published annually in the French Official Journal. Graduates holding a foreign engineering degree are entitled to have the same rights and levels of recognition in France as the graduates from French institutions.
