Highlighting your mobility

Before you can highlight your international mobility, you must validate it !

The first goal is to validate your international mobility, this is a prerequisite for obtaining your SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM engineering degree.

Validating Your studies mobility

The studies or internship stay is part of your course at SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM, it must therefore be validated by means of exams, a report, a defence, etc.

Several points must be accomplished. You must:

  • have taken the classes stipulated in your study contract in order to acquire the necessary number of credits (normally 30 ECTS or equivalent). Any changes made to the initial programme during your stay must be approved beforehand by SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM.
  • have complied with the academic obligations relative to the classes taken in the host establishment: timetables, regular attendance, works to be done and passing the various assessments (continuous assessment and exams, retakes where applicable) and obeyed the host university’s rules and regulations.
  • submit the start and end-of-mobility certificates and the academic transcript to SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM.
  • Submit your mobility report. This is obligatory.

Validating an internship

In order to validate your internship, several points must be accomplished. You must:

  • have completed the period stipulated in the commitments you have made, as stipulated in your internship agreement.
  • make sure that your host organisation issues the necessary documents: certificate, assessment record…
  • submit the required documents to SUPMICROTECH-ENSMM (report, defence before a jury, dissertation, etc.) for the assessment of your internship.

After validation... Highlighting

  • Underlining new learning techniques, working and organisational methods discovered during your mobility. They give you a professionally useful perspective.
  • Making it known that you have acquired specific international skills, know-how and soft skills, such as inter-cultural team work. These are decisive for underlining the originality of your profile or for facilitating your recruitment.
  • Highlighting the fact you are used to speaking a foreign language in total immersion and continuously, and that you are familiar with the technical vocabulary specific to a specialist area of activity.

Your experience

Experience of the country

  • Before your return, obtain all the useful documents: supporting documents, reference letters which would be more difficult to obtained once you have come back to France.

  • Draw up a review of what you have experienced, acquired, developed, liked or not… This review will serve you well in the future to help you refine your professional project or prepare a recruitment interview.
  • Stay in contact with the people you met on the spot (friends, professional contacts, teachers, etc.) An international network is precious and must be nurtured for your future career.
