hello guys, In north america (at least for science and engineering) we normally have bachelor then masters and then phd (for some they will continue and do postdoc). I would like to know more about the french equivalent, i know that there's the "ingenieur" progam which could be equivalent to a bachelor in america but what about "doctorate", DEA, etc. Is it the same for other european countries (other than the UK)? while we finish our undegrads in four years to get a bachelor degree, in some european systems (i know that this is the case in germany) they have five years where they obtain at the end a "master's" degree. Is it equivalent to the american masters in science or engineering?
