Member of the C9 League, HIT is among the first 10 most prestigious higher education institutes of China.


Developing student exchanges in engineering

Already in contact with CentraleSupélec, the meeting with HIT representatives was the opportunity to fine tune common thematic priorities of interest in science and engineering, and to explore perspectives for students exchanges, summer schools, and double-degrees both at the Master’s and doctoral levels. Partners will be able to rely on the Idex Paris-Saclay scholarship programmes as well as that of the China Scholarship Council. Close to 50% of PhD Chinese students at UPSaclay have benefitted from a CSC scholarship.
