The close relationships established between Centrale Graduate School and various European and international universities have enabled to set up a double-degree type program:
Students are most often selected at the end of their second year at their home university.
They come to France in order to follow the 1st and 2nd years of Centrale Graduate School engineering program (corresponding to the 3rd and 4th years of the higher education curriculum) in one of the four Ecoles Centrale. These two years make up the common core of Centrale Graduate School training.
The students then return to their home country to finish their specialised training and are awarded the Centrale engineer degree as well as the engineering or Master's degree of their home university.
