About EFREI EFREI (engineering school), Villejuif (Paris), France

EFREI, the College for Engineering, Information Technology and Business Studies, is a French engineering school that was founded in 1936. Its acronym stands for École Française d'Électronique et d'Informatique. Like most French engineering schools, EFREI graduates small promotions (about 200 grad/year) of engineers (M.Sc) that follow the same programme until the half of the 3rd academic year. Many influencing figures graduated from EFREI, among them, André Truong, who leaded the development of the Micral, the earliest microprocessor-based personal computer.

As the college made a shift in 2003 to include more finance and management in its programme, it is now outstanding in major financial contests against pure management schools: EFREI was 2006 and 2007 National Winner of the Euromanager financial management contest; and 2007 World's #4 at the Global Management Challenge.

EFREI was rated France #1 full-programme engineering school by the magazine Challenges in June 2006.
