The T.I.M.E. Аssociаtion is a leading forum which supports collaborative activities working towards developing the international dimension of education and research. T.I.M.E. brings together a network of distinguished peers, eminent in the field of international higher education and who share the same values, thereby fаcilitаting mutuаl rеcognition of quаlificаtions аnd providing strаtеgic аnd innovаtivе аpproаchеs to the intеrnаtionаlizаtion of higher education.
Promoting internationalisation involves not only strategic partners in academia and research, but also in industry, especially companies operating globally, whose corporate experience is relevant to the strategic thinking and implementation of internationalisation.

The T.I.M.E. Association is a network of leading technical universities and engineering schools founded in Paris in 1989. The members have a strong international dimension in their research, teaching and industrial relations and are all committed to international cooperation, student exchanges and recognition of studies abroad. The association consists of 57 members in 25 countries including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Russia, Japan in addition to the main European countries.
The main purpose of T.I.M.E. is to facilitate the exchange of students for double master’s degrees in engineering. Since its creation, over 3,000 carefully selected students have graduated with two master’s degrees and they have enjoyed a rapid career progression in industry and in other fields of activity. T.I.M.E. double degree 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
The main decision-making body is the General Assembly where all members are represented. It meets once a year and it is hosted on a rotating basis by a volunteer member institution. The day-to-day running of the association is entrusted to an elected Advisory Committee representing 13 member institutions and headed by a Management Board consisting of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary with the support of the Secretary General.
