DIPLOME D'INGENIEUR, INTERNATIONAL ACCREDITATION AS MASTER
In France, the title of "ingénieur diplômé" is nationally recognized and protected by the law. This protection is a guarantee of the quality of engineers' basic education and of their capacity to assume broad responsibilities in the course of their professional life. Bologna agreement, gathering over 45 countries including the European Union, has established that the French diplôme d'ingénieur is equivalent to a Master's degree. Only national degrees at the level + 300 credits ECTS (ex: diplôme d'ingénieur) meet the International requirements for an "official" Master's degree.
