T.I.M.E., which stands for “Top Industrial Managers for Europe”, was founded in Paris in 1989.

All T.I.M.E. members are leading Technical Universities and  Engineering Schools in their own country. They all have a strong international dimension in their research, teaching and industrial relations and they are all  committed to international cooperation, exchange and recognition of studies abroad.

The main purpose of T.I.M.E. is to facilitate the exchange of students for Double Master Degrees in Engineering. Since its creation, over 3,000 carefully selected students have graduated with two Master Degrees and they have enjoyed a rapid career progression in industry and in other fields of activity.

T.I.M.E. double graduates are mobile, adaptable and culturally aware.

In addition to double degrees, T.I.M.E. enables its members to:

  • network for EU-funded projects in education
  • identify opportunities for academic collaboration
  • exchange good practices and experiences
  • participate in specialised task forces
  • promote expertise 
  • increase their visibility
