The primary assignment of its schools is to educate interdisciplinary general engineers and doctors capable of innovatively addressing the challenges of our society. In France, the Écoles Centrale Group produces over 2,000 engineers every year. It fulfils the standards of academic and research excellence due to the dedication of over 800 permanent teachers and researchers and no fewer than 2,000 external contributors.

The Objectives shared by the Group of Écoles Centrale are as follows:

  • A pedagogical approach grounded in a set of five abilities as a fundamental basis.
  • Standardization of training programs and recruitment, both in France and abroad.
  • Exchange programs for third-year engineering students (Master level).
