His Excellency Xavier LAPEYRE DE CABANES, Ambassador of France in Burkina Faso since October 2016, visited the Ouagadougou campus of 2iE on December 21st. During this visit, the ambassador of France and his delegation exchanged with the executive board of 2iE.
At the end of these exchanges, the delegation was given a guided tour of 2iE’s infrastructures (classrooms, conference hall, scientific complex, laboratories, Technopole).
As a reminder, France is one of 2iE’s best partners; this country supported the inception of the institute about fifty years ago and the institutional reform in 2007. 2iE is a member of the Conference des Grandes Ecoles of France and its engineer’s diplomas are recognized by CTI (Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur) thanks to the label EUR-ACE. This grants 2iE’s students with the possibility of travel based exchanges in France and Europe universities and Grandes Ecoles.
Last November, 2iE participated to the 2016 edition of Campus France gatherings.
