Founded

1829

Description

In 2015, the merger of two of France’s leading engineering universities led to the creation of CentraleSupélec. 

The two schools which formed CentraleSupélec were the École Centrale Paris and École Supérieure d'Electricité.

École Centrale Paris was founded in 1829 as a school for engineers in a variety of disciplines. École Supérieure d'Electricité (or Supélec for short) was founded in 1864 and specialised in electrical engineering. Over the years both schools gained an international reputation for excellence in their fields and their graduates were some of the highest-earning in France.

CentraleSupélec has developed its own engineering degree which aims to combine the strengths of both component schools into one teaching programme. Students tackle the problems faced by engineers in the 21st century, preparing them for roles as managers, entrepreneurs and on-the-ground engineers.

Alumni of the École Centrale Paris and École Supérieure d'Electricité have gone on to become political and business leaders, including Louis Charles Bréguet, founder of Air France, Thierry Breton, Minister for Economy, Finance and Industry, and Alain Bénichou, CEO of IBM France.

The university has four campuses in historic and picturesque settings. Rennes is the capital city of Britanny, known for its medieval houses and rose gardens. Metz is located in the northeastern Lorraine region and is famous for its gothic cathedral. Gif-sur-Yvette and Châtenay-Malabry are two suburbs south of Paris, each less than an hour away from the capital by public transport.

First and foremost, CentraleSupélec is one of the best Grandes Écoles of France and studying there guarantees calls from any company in France if your profile is not far from what is demanded. Salaries are also higher for students of Grandes Écoles. The university receives and sends many double degree students, which creates a notably international campus, with students from many nationalities, even if there are still a majority of French students. It also allows original students from the university to choose from a wide range of receiving institutions when considering mobility. In its quest for international relevance, CentraleSupélec is the result of the merger of two renowned universities to increase in size and scientific output. I study the no longer available programme of one of the previous universities, which was (as is the new programme) quite focused on projects and very close to professional applications, with many of the projects being done with companies and an emphasis on professional experience, with several internship periods throughout the 3-4 years of the programme. The first two years are largely generalistic in nature and the third year is specific to every itinerary choice.
