French Grande École

ENSSAT: a public Grande École* affiliated to the Mines-Télécom Institut. Enssat is a leading research hub in the fields of telecoms and emerging technologies.

Front of the schoolThrough its teaching and research teams who work in close collaboration with industry, ENSSAT provides its engineering students with the skills and knowledge required in the field of cutting-edge technologies and research.

ENSSAT is accredited by the Ministry of Research and Higher Education under the authority of the CTI through which the school has been credited with the EUR-ACE quality certification.

ENSSAT, a part of Rennes 1 University, is a "Grande École affiliated to the Mines-Télécom Institut", and is a member of:

  • The ‘Conférence des Grandes Écoles’ (The Conference of Grandes Écoles - CGE)
  • The ‘Conférence des Directeurs des Écoles Françaises d'Ingénieurs’ (The Conference of Directors of French Engineering Schools - CDEFI)
  • The ‘Conférence des Directeurs des Grandes Écoles de Bretagne’ (The Conference of Directors of Breton Grandes Écoles* - CDGEB)
* Note: a French Grande École is an extremely selective higher education establishment which admits students on the basis of competitive exams.

The content of the syllabus is defined by knowledge developments and the need to adapt to industry demands.

The school offers four engineering diplomas as standard initial training courses (or through the APEL system), focused in four specialised areas:

  • Computing (Data management, interactivity, cloud computing)
  • Photonics (Optical technologies, electronics and signal processing)
  • Digital systems (Digital and signal technologies, embedded systems)
  • Multimedia, networks and computer sciences (Multimedia data engineering and service development -> block release training course, available under either an apprenticeship or ongoing training scheme)

See the Admission terms and conditions.

ENSSAT demonstrates its dynamic approach to research through the involvement of its respective teams in national and international projects.
