MINES ParisTech, the École des Mines de Paris, is one of the oldest French higher education institutions in engineering. While its inspirational model has not changed, its teaching methods and its research have been anticipating and accompanying its times ever since 1783.
Mines ParisTech is a “Grande ecole” centred on its research activities. it encompasses all fields of scientific knowledge thanks to 15 innovative research centers exploring five major fields. With 260 research academics, 400 doctoral students and 60 post-doctoral students, Mines ParisTech ranks top among the Grandes ecoles for the volume of contractual research.
The institute’s laboratories are partly associated with CnRs, the ecole Polytechnique, inseRM, inRiA, institut Pasteur, etc. Their research, at the intersection of many fields, has led to
the emergence of new disciplines (geostatistics, mathematical morphology and automatic control systems) which are now studied by the scientific community and disseminated throughout industry and the services.
