International network

Giving students an international perspective is one of ISIMA’s key priorities.
 About one-third of ISIMA students carry out one of their internships overseas, working at either a company or a university laboratory on applied projects.

The main organisations which host ISIMA students are any of the school’s industry partners, support laboratories or research partnerships.
