During a one-week visit of the Pierre and Marie Curie University representatives to Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University, the parties addressed the major aspects of the cooperation with the Institute of Physics, Nanotechnologies and Telecommunications, SPbPU.
Jean-Baptiste de Lakailleri D'Espinoz, Chief Deputy of International Academic Programs Department and Nadine Witkowski, the Master’s Program Advisor visited the laboratories of IPNT where they got an opportunity to have a look at academic syllabi in Physics. Together with the colleagues from SPbPU International Departments, they discussed the prospects for student exchange and internship programs and the participation of French students in the Polytechnic University Summer Schools. Moreover, the negotiations on the opportunity to arrange a joint post-graduate program took place.
Also, the possibility of a double degree program development by the profile “Mesoscopy and Non-conventional Material" was discussed. The visit resulted in the preparation of the framework cooperation agreement on international academic programs. SPbPU and the Pierre and Marie Curie University have agreed the academic syllabi of Master’s degrees so far.
