The origin of the school dates back to the petrol crisis of 1973. France had no petrol and a need for innovative ideas on renewable material. A group of professors and doctors created a very small university class in Epinal that had a focus on wood as a material. It became an engineering school in the year 1985. Now the scope of studies has enlarged to biological fiber materials and paper.
