MINES ParisTech

Introduction

MINES ParisTech, the Ecole des Mines de Paris, is one of the oldest French higher education institutions in engineering. While its inspirational model has not changed,  its teaching methods and its research have anticipated and accompanied its times ever since 1783.


Academics
 

The 260 research academics provide the students with high-level teaching. The limited size of the annual intakes gives them an opportunity to make use of innovative pedagogical methods in correlation with the world of industry, society and future aspirations.

The aim is for academic excellence with 260 research academics, 90 theses and 240 articles in key research fields published annually.


 
The International Dimension

The international dimension is a real aspect of MINES ParisTech. Life at the School will bring you in contact with students from more than 50 different countries. Intermixing of students from different years. The research centres are open to international exchange. Students are required to have a command of two foreign languages and placements lasting between four and twelve months in a foreign institution for engineering students are a strong feature of the School’s international vocation.

MINES ParisTech has established partnerships with some of the best institutions worldwide:

  • Student exchange agreements with 100 partner-universities worldwide;
  • 30% of the student intake at MINES ParisTech, in its various programmes, come from some 50 different countries;
  • the Athens/Cesaer Leuven Network Forum;
  • training courses;
  • language tuition for all students. Every student is expected to be fluent in two languages.
  • 10 foreign languages possibilities for the students.




Excellence of Research

Two Nobel laureates were trained at the School: Georges Charpak (Physics, 1992) and Maurice Allais (Economics, 1988). Our alumni enjoy challenging careers in a variety of fields.

You possess curiosity and you wish to move towards tomorrow’s world, you will then see that research at MINES ParisTech is based on creativity, and anticipating a constantly evolving world; with its wide range of disciplines, the School is a leader in many areas. Here are five major fields in which it excels:

  • Earth sciences and the environment
  • Energy and process engineering
  • Mechanical engineering and materials
  • Mathematics and systems
  • Economics, management and society
  • 15 research centres extending over five different fields
  • 260 research academics
  • The leading school in France for its volume of contractual research
  • Major research themes are essentially based on problems raised by industry, including MITAL, EDF, TOTAL, RENAULT, PSA, SNECMA, GDF and SAINT-GOBAIN, as well as society as a whole.
  • A €30 million turnover including contracts with business partners
