The highest standards for a world-class education
«If you are here, it is the result of a double choice. You chose IMT Atlantique. Thank you! Well done, you deserve it ! That choice makes it incumbent on us to provide you with a quality education, to offer you interesting courses, to prepare you for the future, to accompany you as best we can.
The second choice is ours. We chose you. You have taken the competitive exams, submitted your applications and we deemed you capable. Our choice brings with it some obligations though. This means that you must not disappoint us; it means that we consider that you have the standard required, but you will have to justify it, you will have to work, you will have to commit.
We expect a year-long commitment from you. You have to acquire a certain level of knowledge and skill reflexes that will make of you engineers with the standards we expect, » said Christophe Lerouge, president.
« The challenges are great in a changing world. You will be catalysts for companies, particularly in the realm of environmental transitions. You will have a strong role to play in terms of innovation and research in the new challenges of industrial sovereignty.
Open your horizons and multiply your experiences. Try double-courses, make the most of your time here to strengthen your international culture. All this will be an asset in your career path, » added Catherine Hellio, Vice President.
Before they continued the discovery of their environment and various highlights of life at the school, Philippe Picouet, the Dean of Academic and Student Affairs, emphasized to the students the value of their words and actions throughout their courses, in both their extracurricular activities and their student life.
