The school hosts the laboratories for three research centers :
- The RAPSODEE Center carries out research into product-oriented process engineering. Its name stands for Research Centre in Particulate Solid Process Engineering, Energy and Environment.
- The Clément Ader Institut, specialised in the study of structures, systems and mechanical processes. This laboratory is mainly focused on the fields of aeronautics, space, transportation and energy.
- The industrial engineering lab.
