CentraleSupélec was present at all stages of the creation of the Université Paris-Saclay, which officially came into being on November 5, 2019, with the publication in the Journal Officiel of its founding decree. The school is a component establishment of the university, along with AgroParisTech, the Institut d'Optique Graduate School and the Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay.
Paris-Saclay University offers a complete and varied range of Bachelor's, Master's and PhD degrees, the quality of which is recognised internationally thanks to the reputation of its research and the commitment of its teaching staff. Its components and component institutions further expand this offer with cutting-edge thematic training in science and engineering, life sciences and health, social sciences and humanities.
With 275 laboratories shared with the CEA, CNRS, IHES, INRAE, INRIA, INSERM, ONERA, Paris-Saclay University represents 13% of the French research potential. Composed of 65,000 students, 9,000 teachers and lecturers and 11,000 technical and administrative staff, the University Paris-Saclay is a driving force for the development of its territory and one of the best institutions in France.
At the same time, the University's component establishments and components are working on the construction of the 17 Graduate Schools. Each Graduate School coordinates a set of master's degrees and training programmes, doctoral schools and research teams organised around a theme, one or more disciplines, or a mission.
CentraleSupélec coordinates the "Engineering and Systems Sciences" Graduate School
In a unique ecosystem bringing together academic centres and industrial partners within the same territory, this "Engineering and Systems" Graduate School will offer recognised master's and doctoral level training in the fields of Engineering Sciences and associated digital sciences. These courses open the door to professional integration into the Research and Development community in France and abroad. The Graduate School will have more than 1,000 Master's students and 600 PhDs graduating each year in several major research areas: materials, mechanics, civil engineering, industrial engineering, optics, electronics, telecommunications, electrical engineering, robotics, applied mathematics and numerics, high-performance computing, biomedical imaging, biotechnologies...
This Graduate School will bring together more than sixty research laboratories that contribute to responding, through research and innovation, to major societal challenges. To prepare for tomorrow's world, it will seek a balance between the ecological and economic development of our societies by conducting research at the best global level. The increase in the international visibility of French engineering science education should enable the Graduate School to attract the best students in its various training cycles.
CentraleSupélec's ambition between 2020 and 2024 is therefore to successfully launch this Graduate School to make it a strong point of the Université Paris Saclay.
The School has also chosen to be an operator in eight other Graduate Schools:
- BASE (Biodiversity, Agriculture and Food, Society, Environment)
- Higher education and research
- Life Sciences and Health
- Sociology and political science.
