Campus Features


Marseille, a Phocaean city, rich in 2,600 years of history, at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, has many assets: the sea, the sun, nature, and culture.
Classified as a city of art and history, it is developing its economic and cultural dynamism, which is currently booming.

Often stigmatized, it is today experiencing a strong resurgence in attractiveness and is identified as a lung for creative youth. Winner of the European label “100 carbon neutral cities by 2030”, the City of Marseille and the Metropolis are working together on structuring projects to move towards carbon neutrality.

The second largest public research center in France, the region also hosts the second largest contingent of CNRS personnel.
At the same time, the territory is also marked by the development at the highest level of numerous industrial sectors, particularly in the fields of aeronautics, microelectronics, transport, energy, chemistry, etc.


Nice, it's Promenade des Anglais, it's approximately 300 days of sunshine, and it's snow-capped mountains in the background.

A dynamic city and region with a rich cultural offering, punctuated by one of the most famous carnivals in the world, several internationally renowned jazz festivals, and also the Cannes Festival.

Nice Côte d'Azur brings together 2,700 researchers for around 26,000 students in cutting-edge sectors such as

  • Microelectronics

  • Telecommunications and networks

  • Software engineering

  • The space and aeronautical industry

  • Life and environmental sciences

  • Health-biotechnologies-agrochemistry

  • The aromatic industry.

Nice is also the second national conference center after Paris and one of the very first European centers in the medical field.

Today this territory has launched a new challenge: building the Côte d'Azur of the 21st century. As part of the ongoing National Interest Operation, the Var Plain is intended to become the backbone of this new economic universe with a brand new business district, an urban technopoly, and eco-districts... is where Centrale Méditerranée is located.

    Scholarships and Funding

    So that no engineering student or student is, for financial reasons, penalized in their education, there are numerous financing aids in different forms.

    Financing Aid

    Currently, any French student can obtain, depending on their family situation:

    • A national higher education scholarship (bcs) granted by the Rectorate,

    • A departmental Higher Education scholarship granted by certain General Councils (file to be collected from the town hall of the family home),

    • An honorary loan granted by the Rectorate,

    • A travel grant (depending on the country of destination) by the Rectorate,

    • A mobility grant from the Ministry of National Education.

    Other aid and loans exist and are granted in particular, student loans guaranteed by the State, without guarantee or resource conditions, are offered by banks (Société Générale, Crédit Mutuel, CIC, Banques Populaires, and the Savings banks).

    Erasmus+ Allowance

    The Erasmus + allowance is awarded to students carrying out part of their studies in Europe as part of an inter-establishment exchange.

    This aid can be combined with the BCS scholarship.
