    My university in Colombia has agreements with many schools in France, so I chose Mines Nancy because I was really interested in its program - Ingénieur Civil des Mines.


    If I have to highlight something, it is the opportunities. The school gives you help if you need and also the school has many important enterprises as partners. the school's reputation is another important point. and finally, I like Nancy as a student city and its strategic position in the middle of Europe
