École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon or CPE Lyon is a French engineering school, located in Villeurbanne, near Lyon.

Degrees[edit]

CPE Lyon offers Master's level degrees in two disciplines[2] and three diplomas.[3]

The chemistry and chemical engineering degrees involve the conception, synthesis and manufacture of new and valuable moleculeswthat can be “first on the market". They also involve a focus on environmental issues and sustainability.

The electronics, telecommunications, maths and computer science degrees include a global education in electronics, microelectronics, computer science, image and signal processing, telecommunications and applied math.

CPE Lyon also conducts research in organic chemistry, analytical sciences, chemical and process engineering, microelectronics and image processing.

Selected students can prepare a Ph.D. in one of the research laboratories (50 new students per year on average).

History[edit]

In 1883, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) was founded by Jules Raulin, a student of Louis Pasteur. In 1919 1912 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner Victor Grignard became a director. In that same year, the Institut de Chimie et Physique Industrielles de Lyon (ICPI) was founded by Professor Lepercq. In 1933, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) was awarded the Légion d'Honneur by the Ministry of War, for service to the nation.

In 1993, Hubert Curien, former chairman of the European Space Agency (ESA), former president of the CERN and former minister was appointed President of ESCIL. One year later, in 1994, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) and the Institut de Chimie et Physique Industrielles de Lyon (ICPI) merged to form the current École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon (CPE-Lyon).

In 2005, Jean Dercourt, Secretary of the French Academy of Sciences, was appointed President of the École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon (CPE-Lyon).
