The ENSCI proposes to its students to obtain a second Master's degree by engaging in courses organised with partner schools and universities, in the fields of engineering, architecture, management and/or human sciences.
It also welcomes students from some of these partner institutions for a double degree. All these students take the entrance exam under the same conditions as students applying for the industrial designer program.
The ENSCI offers double diplomas with four academic partners:
— École Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers (ENSAM)
— École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville (ENSAPB)
— CELSA (École des hautes études en sciences de l’information et de la communication).
Pre-registration is required in all cases, and begins on 1 January 2020.
Applicants should pre-register online via the ENSCI website. The closing date for applications is Thursday 20 February 2020 (date as per postmark). Every part of the application must be submitted to us by post.
