Following an audit in January 2020, the French Engineering Degrees Commission (CTI) has issued its verdict: maximum accreditation for ECAM LaSalle training courses provided on the Lyon and Strasbourg campuses.
All ECAM Lyon engineering courses are therefore accredited by the CTI for 5 years:
- ECAM Arts et Métiers, a general engineering degree
- ECAM Engineering, taught entirely in English, with a dual degree (ECAM LaSalle Mechanical and Electrical Engineering + a Master’s of Science from a partner university abroad)
- Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (GIM), an apprenticeship program
- Energy Efficiency and Installation Management (EEM), an apprenticeship program
This audit highlighted many of ECAM’s strengths, including its dynamism, the availability of its staff and personalized support for engineering students, close ties with companies and the emphasis placed on practical real-life exercises in the school’s teaching methods.
“This is an excellent result, the fruit of group efforts and a strategy in line with the CTI’s requirements,” stated Didier Desplanche, CEO of ECAM LaSalle. “Our daily commitment to serving our students has been rewarded by this maximum accreditation. This will encourage us to continue deploying our educational project and reaffirming what makes our school unique.”
What is the CTI?
The French Engineering Degrees Commission (CTI) is an independent body responsible for assessing all engineering training programs, developing the quality of training and promoting engineering degrees and the engineering profession both in France and abroad.
Thus, the CTI periodically assesses all engineering training courses at public and private French schools, with a view to accrediting these schools to issue the state engineering degree. This will be the case with ECAM Lyon engineering courses for an additional 5 years.
