General Engineering

Ecole Centrale de Lyon breeds general engineers who are accomplished, open and equipped with ethical values that are indispensable to the development of solutions that will meet the societal challenges of the 21st century.

For 3 years, the engineering students benefit from a scientific and technical education of excellence, supported by significant cultural development through social sciences and humanities, project work, mastering two, even three languages and an insight into the international community and the working world. Therefore, it becomes appropriate for the students to exercise their managerial leadership.

The program relies on the unique strengths of Ecole Centrale de Lyon that are particularly well-adapted to the practical needs of enterprises and provides graduates with a strong identity. In particular, the School prides itself in the dynamism and synergy of research (6 CNRS laboratories on campus) and industrial and international relations. The laboratories develop numerous partnerships with enterprises which support their research activities. Similarly, these strong collaborations were established with research groups in international laboratories including labs in Canada, Japan, Brazil and China. A significant part of the curriculum is devoted to laboratory work in small groups within the laboratories in the School. The engineering students are therefore placed in the heart of the global industrial challenges of tomorrow.
