Mines ParisTech

MINES ParisTech

Since its creation in 1783, MINES ParisTech has been training very high-level engineers capable of solving complex problems in a wide variety of fields.

MINES ParisTech is the leading engineering school in France in terms of the volume of contract research. Its research fields range from energy to materials, including applied mathematics, geosciences and economic and social sciences. The engineering school is also developing teaching and research chairs on emerging themes.

MINES ParisTech is a founding member of ParisTech, the consortium of France’s leading engineering schools. The school is also one of the 11 institutions of the Université Paris Sciences et Lettres, which brings together prestigious higher education and research institutions located in the heart of Paris.



MINES ParisTech’s research centers are partly associated with the CNRS, the École Polytechnique and INSERM. Their research, at the intersection of multiple fields, has led to the emergence of new disciplines, such as geostatistics, mathematical morphology and flat systems control, which are widely studied by the scientific community and disseminated in industry and services.
