Double degree programmes with Brazil
At the beginning of the 2000s, a network uniting the five Écoles Centrale with the School of Engineering of the University of São Paulo, the Federal University of Ceará, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the University of Campinas, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul and the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro was set up. It was created to develop double-degree exchanges between France and Brazil. The network now brings together 11 Brazilian universities, the latter one being ITA (Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica), to the 5 Écoles Centrale. Today, CentraleSupélec trains around 30 double degree students per year between the two countries.
