Russia admission programme


Enhance your career prospects: ParisTech encourages bright, ambitious students to apply for a Double Master’s degree in Science and Engineering ("Diplôme d'ingénieur") at the most prestigious French Grandes Ecoles, a unique opportunity for an international career.


Cooperation between ParisTech and Russian universities covers a very wide range of engineering tracks thanks to the nine engineering schools involved in this programme:



Chimie ParisTech

École des Ponts ParisTech


Institut d'Optique Graduate School

MINES ParisTech

Double degree with partner universities

ParisTech schools signed several agreements in order to enable students to come and study in Paris to get a double degree. It means that at the end of your studies you will get at the same time the Master’s degree from your University and the engineering degree of the ParisTech School.

Only students from the following universities may apply to the double degree programme:


  • Novosibirsk State University (NSU)
  • Tomsk State University (TSU): Science and Engineering faculties
  • St Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU)


For admission into the two-year Master’s programme, you are required to have successfully completed at least 3 years of a Bachelor’s degree (Bakalavrat) in Science or Engineering at your home University by September 2019 taking into account that you will move to France in September 2021 after achieving your first year of Master’s degree at your University.

You should have good working knowledge of English or French.

If you are an individual student from other universities than the ones mentioned above, we might exceptionnaly consider your request to apply to the Master’s degree in Science and Engineering provided that we manage to get the support from your home University.
