One of the missions of Polytech Nantes is to shape engineers with a high level of scientific understanding. This objective can only be achieved if the school is supported by quality research teams. Numerous achievements and publications have lead to theinternational renown of the research teams and labs at Polytech Nantes.
Pre-doctoral and PhD research is also open to students who wish to participate in such research
The University Environment
The makeup of research teams at Polytech Nantes is not limited to those working at Polytech Nantes, but is open to other partners and members of the University of Nantes (IUT of Nantes, IUT of Saint-Nazaire, UFR des Sciences et des techniques) as well as a number of other institutions in Nantes (Ecole Centrale, Ecole des Mines). Such a milieu encourages cooperative research and a sharing of skills and knowledge
The link to the business world
The school's approach to research is to establish an equilibrium between experimental and established research practices. The strength of our research labs lies in a number of research contracts with businesses, most notably small businesses, as well as significant involvement in European and international collaborations. Several small businesses have even been created thanks to the innovations of the school's researchers.
