CentraleSupélec is an internationally-reputed Higher Education and Research Institution. Its excellence lies in its combination of fundamental and applied sciences for innovation with societal impact. For almost two centuries, CentraleSupélec's top engineers have been practicing their skills and knowledge to develop corporate institutions and public organizations.
CentraleSupélec is a public institution under the ministerial charter, devoted to the sciences and engineering. This charter is shared between the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the Ministry of Economy, Industry, and Digital Technologies.
CentraleSupélec was officially established on January 1st, 2015, bringing together two leading engineering schools in France, Ecole Centrale Paris, and Supélec. The cooperation between our two grandes écoles, known in the French system, had progressively gained momentum since 2009, with the sustained alliance in three core areas: engineering education, executive education, and research.
Since 1969, our schools have shared the same admissions process by way of competitive entrance examinations. The similarities in our respective student populations naturally led to an absolute harmony in our approach to innovation, entrepreneurship, internationalization, and leadership development. Our journey towards becoming CentraleSupélec has allowed us to consolidate our research to cover all engineering and systems sciences.
Today we boast multiple campuses across the country in the Paris region, Metz and Rennes. We have 4500 students and 370 faculty members and researchers, all of whom interact with our global network: three international campuses (China, India, and Morocco) and five associated laboratories (Brazil, Canada, The United States, and China). We also have successful partnerships with 176 international universities and 140 corporate institutions. Our academic and research excellence is nestled in our firm and fruitful cooperations with large national institutions such as the CNRS, CEA, INRIA, INSERM, and ONERA.
2018 will see the launch of the new CentraleSupélec Engineering Curriculum. It is designed to emphasize student agency within a skill-building academic program aimed at crafting expertise, fostering autonomy, and nurturing career development from the very start.
At the heart of this program is the combination of the fundamental and the applied sciences, approached from a complex perspective within a multidisciplinary framework. These disciplines include mathematics, physics, computer science and technology, energy, mechanics, and industrial engineering.
CentraleSupélec responds to the global scientific community's needs in shaping and supporting our students within the current needs of society while leading it towards future trajectories. Our vision is that of the whole engineer. One who is independent-thinking as well as being socially and environmentally responsible. Be he or she a creator or a business leader, the CentraleSupélec graduate, will be able to bring together scientific excellence, technical expertise, and an openness of spirit founded on humanism, respect, sharing and cooperation values that define us as an institution.' Hervé Biausser, President of CentraleSupélec.
Ranked among the top 200 universities worldwide by QS, we have a network of 176 partner universities in 45 countries and 80 double-degree agreements. Our international student population is at 30%, with 20% international faculty members, as well. We have an alumni network of 35,000 people all over the world.
We also continue to develop our presence in China, India, and other major countries of the future. In 2005, Ecole Centrale Paris, together with the Groupe Ecole Centrale, became the first top-tier French engineering school to export its pedagogical model abroad, creating Ecole Centrale Pekin in China. In 2014, Mahindra Ecole Centrale was launched in India, and in 2015, Ecole Centrale Casablanca was launched in Morocco. In addition to our overseas campuses, we also have active partnerships with academic and research institutions worldwide, with five associated international laboratories in China, United States, Singapore, and Canada.
We are thus building a global group of schools and interconnected laboratories, which we intend to expand in the years to come. In October 2015, the École Centrale Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of São Paulo to open a school in Brazil one day. We are also working on the idea of a Southern African Ecole Centrale in Mauritius.
