Students study at the Université Grenoble Alpes, an institution that dates from the fourteenth century, located in Grenoble at the foot of the French Alps. The Grenoble Engineering Program, offered only in the spring semester, is ideally suited for second-semester sophomores in engineering. The program carries no prior language requirement; engineering courses are taught in English by French faculty, and guided field trips allow observation of French research institutions, industries, and technical museums.
