Conférence des directeurs des écoles françaises d'ingénieurs (CDEFI) is French for "Conference of the Directors of French Engineering Schools"

The CDEFI is a French national institution that represents all engineering institutions that are accredited by the Commission des titres d'ingénieur (CTI)[1] to deliver the French Diplôme d'Ingénieur.[2]

The conference was originally an advisory body, established in 1976 and governed by Articles D.233-D.233-6 to 12 of the French Education Code, widely revised by Decree No. 2006-428 of 11 April 2006,[3] which broadens the scope. It was then chaired by the law minister in charge of Higher Education.

Its president is Christian Lerminiaux. The CDEFI board also consists of three Vice-presidents: Jean-Marie Chesneaux, Director of Polytech UPMC; François Cansell, Director of Institut polytechnique de Bordeaux, Valérie Cabuil, Director of Chimie ParisTech.[4]
