The École Nationale Supérieure de Physique, Électronique et Matériaux (Phelma) is a Grande École located in Grenoble, France. Phelma is part of the Institut polytechnique de Grenoble. The school specializes in physics, electronics and materials.

Students are admitted to Phelma after two years of undergraduate studies. Studies at Phelma are of three years' duration and lead to the French degree "Diplôme National d'Ingénieur" (equivalent to a master's degree in engineering).


Phelma is born from the gathering of 3 engineering schools : ENSEEG, ENSERG and ENSPG

ENSEEG(Materials, Electrochemistry and Processes)
ENSEEG was first known as "l'Institut de l'Electrochimie" established in 1921. It was renamed ENSSEG in 1946.

The school was first part of "l'Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble" in 1942. It became an ENSI in 1948. It was finally renamed ENSERG in 1968.

The school was created in 1986 from a part of the ENSIEG.


Due to its history, Phelma's building are located on 3 different places.
