The Faculty of Engineering started in 1864 as Ecoles Spéciales des Arts et Manufactures, du Génie Civil et des Mines. Today it is a multidisciplinary school forming academic engineers with a sound scientific background, an advanced technical knowledge, a stimulated creativity, a concept oriented approach and with an open view on societal issues.
Intensive research is the heart beat for the education programme, as demonstrated by the almost 100 defended PhD theses per year and the large number of research projects.
The faculty comprises 7 research departments, organizes 8 bachelor programmes and 18 master programmes (11 initial masters and 7 post-initial masters). There is a lively interaction with national and international universities, research institutes and industrial partners.
