Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble
The Grenoble Institute of Technology is one of Europe's leading technology universities, at the heart of innovation from more than a century.
Grenoble Institute of Technology is involved in major development projects such as Minatec, or the Minalogic (micro and nanotechnology and embedded software) and EnRRDIS (renewable energy) industrial clusters. With its solid combination of teaching, research and business promotion, Grenoble Institute of Technology plays a key role in making Grenoble one of the most attractive scientific and industrial locations worldwide.
Lifelong learning is a touchstone of Grenoble Institute of Technology, from bachelor's degree to ongoing professional development. 11 engineering degree courses are on offer in key engineering sciences and Grenoble INP also runs masters and doctorate schools. 1,100 hundred engineers are awarded bachelor's degrees each year and 170 doctorates are also awarded. The integrated preparatory course, jointly run by Grenoble Institute of Technology and its sister institutes in Nancy and Toulouse, provides an access course for high school leavers wanting to study engineering at Grenoble Institute of Technology. Finally, the professional development department serves professionals throughout their career, with a wide range of short and long-term courses to meet their needs.
With 38 laboratories, some of which are shared with the CNRS (French national scientific research centre) and the other three Grenoble universities, research is one of Grenoble Institute of Technology's strengths.
Right from the outset, created to meet the needs of industrial groups in the Grenoble area, Grenoble Institute of Technology has developed its engineering courses and programs in close relationship with industry, and has a well-developed business promotion policy.
