Cours de langues à l'ECPMECPM engineers are trilingual when they graduate. To achieve this, languages are a key priority, not only in the dedicated language courses, but also in the scientific teaching.

Language teaching

Each student learns 2 languages: English as the first, with the choice of either German or Spanish as the second. International students learn French as their second language. It is possible to learn German as a complete beginner.

A third language is also possible (at beginning or intermediate levels): German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese are offered.
