ENSMM is one of the famous French « Grandes Ecoles » and its Engineering degree has been recognized by the national engineering accrediting board CTI (Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur.
Since 1902, when it delivered its first engineering degree, ENSMM  has developped numerically (with actually around 1000 students) as well as  themewise. Our program prepares students for a large spectrum of professional roles in technological domains. After the Package for « Methodological integration » (also called Semester of Transition (ST) ) carried in Besançon  itself, students can select one of the nine  options  actually proposed in our institute in collaboration with major industrial sectors. Thus depending on their professional objectives, students have the possibility to specialize in  Mechanics, Materials and Surfaces, Energy and Transport, Microsystems, Micro and Nanotechnologies, Mechatronics, Automation and Production Engineering. Finally note that at ENSMM, after their engineering degree, students can pursue with a PhD curriculum.
