Training by research
Valorization and spin-off
Strong labs, global repute
Being a general engineering school means carrying out research at a high level in a large number of scientific fields. Centrale Lyon runs a cogent and complete range of engineering science subjects. Our organization is such as to stimulate cross-fertilization between disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches.
Our laboratories are all under the aegis of the National Scientific Research Council (CNRS), combining fundamental and technological research. This guarantees them recognition at the highest scientific level in France and the world, and anchors them firmly in corporate reality.
Spearheads of corporate INNOVATION
Research is the prime source of innovation.
The School and its valorization subsidiary, Centrale Innovation, file patents and work on research contracts with businesses both big and small, and our researchers launch start-ups from the fruits of their research.
Contract work is a big part of our labs' activity (€6m p.a.).
Centrale Lyon is authorized to deliver doctorates. Every year, we train some 60 PhDs, who go out and bring their scientific rigor and creative spirit - developed over their explorations in new scientific fields - to the world of business.
