In keeping with the traditions of French Engineering schools (grandes écoles d’ingénieurs), Centrale Nantes, founded in 1919, trains versatile engineers to a very high scientific and technical level. Equipped with a strong managerial culture, its students are capable of placing scientific subjects into a global context incorporating environmental and societal issues. It is a member of the Écoles Centrales Group (Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes and Paris), and educates more than 2000 students at its Nantes campus. With the support of numerous strong institutional and industrial partnerships, Centrale Nantes also produces world-class academic and applied research.
