Physical education and sport are an integral element of the whole education of the engineering student at the School. Sport is compulsory at Centrale Lyon.

Students can choose from among 20 different sports – either as an individual or in a team – to fulfil requirements for participation in sport, often allowing them to participate in university sporting competitions. They can also participate in less competitive sporting activities such as as part of hikes organised by the mountaineering club or visits to ski stations with the ski club.
