École Nationale Supérieure de l'Électronique et de ses Applications (also known as ENSEA) is a graduate school (grande école) of electrical engineering and computer science, located in Cergy (in Val d'Oise department) close to Paris in France.

It was founded in 1952 under the name of ENREA and became ENSEA in 1976.


Future engineers are recruited after a centralized and selective country-wide specific entrance examination ("Classes Préparatoires") or laterally into final or pre-final year after a bachelor degree in electronics or relevant scientific fields (physics, chemistry, electronics, computer science, etc.).


Grande École Degree

The Engineering degree (or Diplôme d'Ingénieur de l'École Nationale Supérieure de l'Electronique et de ses Applications) delivered by L'Académie de Versailles; is equivalent to the Master's degree in Engineering in the USA. Courses spread over 3 years cover all aspects of electrical, electronics and computer science and engineering, e.g.: signal processing, microelectronics, embedded systems, software engineering, networking, control and power electronics besides some important non-engineering courses such as economics, management, business communications and foreign languages.

M.S. Specialized Masters Programs

ENSEA and ITIN offer also an MS Specialized Master labelled by the Conférence des grandes écoles[1] and named TIM (Mobile IT and Telecommunication)[2]


The school presently offers 8 specialisations:

International Orientation

The school has international links with universities from all over the world, especially in the United States, Germany, Spain and UK. It has dual master's degrees with several American and European universities including Imperial College, Georgia Tech, Illinois Institute of Technology and Suny Buffalo. ENSEA is also a member of the n+i network[3] of engineering schools and admits 10 highly competitive students from around the world every year through the n+i program.

Research pole

ENSEA as well as all upper education institutions of Cergy-Pontoise are organized in a PRES (Research and Upper Education Pole) including :


  1. Web site of the 'Conférence des Grandes Ecoles(CGE)'
  2. Web site of the CEDEFI
  3. Web site of N+i network
