As part of the ECIU mobility programme, INSA students have the opportunity to take part in challenges under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 11, “Sustainable Cities and Communities”. They respond to these challenges within teams of European learners, which leads them to perform academic mobilities (both physical and virtual) so as to acquire the knowledge and skills bricks offered in the different member universities of the Alliance.


Agreements exist between the INSA Group and many universities in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. These intergovernmental programs (ARFITEC; BRAFITEC; MEXFITEC) allow engineering students to study for one or two semesters, possibly followed by an internship in one of the partner universities of the INSA Group.
