What is this ranking based on?

To develop its yearly ranking Usine Nouvelle – a French-language magazine dedicated to economics and technology in the industrial sphere – uses certified data from the French Engineering Accreditation Commission (CTI). Engineering schools are assessed based on 4 major criteria: program graduates on the labor market, international relations, research and the role of entrepreneurship. Each of these takes into account several sub-criteria, including:

  • annual gross salary one year after graduation: €41,870 for ECAM Lyon (see the Employment Survey 2018)
  • the percentage of students who begin their career abroad: 28.10% for ECAM Lyon (see the Employment Survey 2018)
  • the number of graduates supported by incubators (Learn more about entrepreneurship at ECAM Lyon)
  • the percentage of apprentices (Find out more about our apprenticeship programs)
  • the percentage of females in the student body
  • yearly tuition fees

This ranking is based on data from the ECAM Arts et Métiers engineering program delivered at ECAM Lyon and ECAM Strasbourg-Europe as part of a single degree.
