IT MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS
DSTI students are required to have a Windows PC (Apple Macs are not an option) laptop with the following minimum specifications:
1.CPU: Intel Core i5 minimum (or AMD equivalent)
2.RAM: 8GB minimum, 16GB strongly recommended
3.Storage: 512GB minimum, 1TB strongly recommended. SSD is best, but expensive. A good and common alternative is a dual-drive system with 128GB/256GB SSD + 512 or 1TB magnetic. If magnetic only, it has to be a 7200rpm minimum, 5400rpm are too slow.
4.Graphic Card (GPU): an NVIDA GPU is a plus, but it’s not a mandatory requirement.
5.Operating System: any edition of Microsoft Windows, as DSTI will provide a Windows 10 Professional licence key once the classes are starting
6.Do not pay for MS Office 365, DSTI will also provide a licence once the classes are starting.
Without complying to these requirements, DSTI will not be able to provide its IT support.
Ability in English required
All classes are conducted exclusively in English, therefore a good level of proficiency in this language is required (equivalent to English level C1 on the European scale “CEFR”).
It is not necessary to include proof of language proficiency with your application. However, your level of English will be assessed at the admission interview to ensure that you are able to understand and follow the desired programmes.

Once you apply
The application process is done online and we assess the acceptability of your application.
You will be asked to upload the usual registry documents: your CV and a cover letter. Recommendation letters are not mandatory.
Your English proficiency will be assessed by your understanding during the admission interview. You are more than welcome to provide any English proficiency test that you may have taken.
Engineers who have graduated from Arts et Métiers are eligible to a fast-track and preferential admission process.
Online entry exam
If your application is declared acceptable, we will send you a link to take the online entry exam.
Once we assess the results from the online exam entry and that you are declared eligible (admissible), we will invite you for a short admission interview. This interview lasts around 20 minutes.
Each week, the Eligibility Committee decides whether your application is suitable for admission.
Again, don’t worry too much here: they will just make sure that you have a sufficient educational and/or professional background to follow our state-of-the-art programmes.
You are a matriculated student!
After the admission interview we will declare you admitted or not.
Once you are admitted, in order to be matriculated and to send you the official admission letter, you will be asked to pay 10% of the total tuition fees. The amount will depend on the Applied MSc programme and study mode chosen.
Once the payment is done, you will officially be matriculated.
