École polytechnique de l'Université de Nantes (also known as Polytech Nantes) is a French Grande École which provides curricula and run research programmes in a variety of scientific and technological fields:

  • electronic and digital technologies
  • civil engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • process and bioprocess engineering
  • computer science
  • materials science
  • thermal and energy science
  • energies (by apprenticeship)
  • networking and telecoms systems(by apprenticeship)

Polytech Nantes offers scientific and multidisciplinary training courses which correspond to high-level international master's degrees (Master of Science, Master of engineering with Honors). Scientific, technical, professional, linguistic, social and human elements are critical aspects of the course and the hallmarks of a French engineer. French speaking students may attend any semester's programmes in French.

Deadlines for applications : • Autumn semester (September to January) or for the entire year. Deadlines for applications: April 30 • Spring semester (January to May). Deadlines for applications: November 15

Five engineering specialities currently offer engineering semesters in English: • Computer Science (Spring and Autumn – M1 and M2 level) • Electronic and Digital Technologies (Autumn semester only - M2 level) • Electrical Engineering (Autumn semester only - M2 level) • Process and Bioprocess Engineering (Autumn semester only - M2 level) • Thermal and Energy Sciences (Autumn semester only - M2 level)

The school has agreements with more than 50 foreign universities and companies, as well as European universities through Erasmus+ exchange programs. It allows Polytech Nantes to receive and send students wishing to gain experience of working abroad. Incoming students receive a warm welcome when they arrive at Polytech Nantes. Its international partnerships have allowed Polytech Nantes to develop a complete range of programs taught in English, thanks to the quality of its research and teaching staff.

International master's degrees :

  • Master 2 Data Science / Advanced courses in data science, performing analyses and interpreting data.
  • Master 2 Electrical Energy / Advanced courses in electrical energy (sustainable development, multi-source systems, energy conversion...)
  • Master 2 Microalgae Bioprocess Engineering /Advanced courses to develop industrial processes for microalgae valorization.
  • Master 2 Thermal Science and Energy /Advanced courses in heat transfer, fluid mechanics and energy systems.
  • Master 2 Visual Computing /Advanced courses in visual information acquisition, processing, analysis and rendering.
  • Master 2 Wireless Embedded Technologies /Advanced courses in the design and control of wireless communicating objects.

General information[edit]

It is located on three distinct campuses:

The school was created in January 2000 through the merging of three existing engineering schools: ESA-IGELEC, IRESTE, and ISITEM.


Polytech Nantes is a department of the University of Nantes and a member of the Polytech group which is a network of 14 graduate engineering schools within France's leading science universities located in Marseille, Nantes, Montpellier, Nice, Annecy-Chambéry, Grenoble, Paris Upmc, Paris sud, Clermont-Ferrand, Orléans, Tours, Lyon, Lille and Nancy.
