- About Centrale Paris
Since its foundation in 1829, the École Centrale Paris has followed the same calling: training engineers capable of meeting the greatest challenges of their era. The challenge is to allow the 9 billion people who will live on our planet in 2050 to have access to
water, food, energy, health, education, information, etc.
To appreciate and meet the great challenges of the 21st century, the world needs ever more engineers – “three- dimensional” engineers: high level scientific and technical generalists, experts in initiating and piloting innovative projects and with a strong
It is these new scientific leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators, that Centrale Paris seeks to train and to prepare for the companies, governments and institutions of today and tomorrow. These men and women will know how to respond to the issues of their age using the science and technology.
It continues to prove this by developing its alliances with the most prestigious companies, universities and research centres in France and throughout the world. And by successfully exporting its model overseas, through the creation of the École Centrale in Beijing.
It is in this same spirit, with this same enthusiasm that we will continue to develop in order to train increasingly outstanding leaders.
