International partnerships

IFP School is open to the world through its academic cooperation and partnerships that offer international exposure and academic excellence to the students.

Dual master's degree programs are offered with Colorado School of Mines, Oklahoma University and Texas A&M University (United States), Gubkin University, Kazan Federal University (Russia), Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires (Argentina), Institut Teknologi Bandung (Indonesia), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China), etc. Half of the program takes place at IFP School and the other half at the partner university concerned. These dual degree programs allow students to discover different educational systems and build a rich and diverse professional network.

In several programs (Reservoir Geoscience and Engineering, Processes and Polymers, Petroleum Economics and Management), it is also possible for students to spend a semester at a partner university, for example in Brazil, Canada, China, the United States, Norway or the United Kingdom.

Agreements also exist with many European universities, allowing engineering students to come to IFP School as part of a two-year work-study program, the first year of which replaces the last year of their home school or university.

As part of academic cooperation, IFP School professors teach courses in master's degrees from foreign universities. In this context and since 2019, IFP School and the National University of Singapore offer a new Master's program: "Petroleum Projects and Offshore Technology". This new program focuses on offshore technological challenges with particular attention to safety and environmental issues.
