The Master's degrees that CentraleSupélec coordinates or to which it contributes are high-level courses, open to French and international students holding at least a bachelor's degree and to students at the end of their engineering studies. These courses lead to a national Master's degree and offer an easily identifiable international-level diploma, corresponding to the "M" level in Europe. It leads to further doctoral studies or to direct high-level integration into companies. CentraleSupélec's Master's degree programmes reflect the major axes of development of its research in line with the needs of its academic and industrial partners.



CentraleSupélec is the coordinating institution of the "Graduate School of Engineering and Systems Sciences".

The operating establishments are AgroParisTech, the Orsay Faculty of Science, the Institut d'Optique Graduate School, the Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay, the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, the University of EvryPolytech Paris-Saclay, INRAECEA and CNRS.

The IUT of Cachan and INRIA are associated operators.


Presentation of the Graduate School

In a unique ecosystem bringing together academic centres and industrial partners within the same territory, the Graduate School of Engineering and Systems Sciences offers recognised master's and doctoral level training in the fields of Engineering Sciences and associated digital sciences.

These courses open the way to professional integration into the Research and Development environment in France and abroad.

The Graduate School has more than 1,000 Master students and 600 PhD students graduating each year in several major research themes: materials, mechanics, civil engineering, industrial engineering, optics, electronics, telecommunications, electrical engineering, robotics, applied mathematics and computer science, high-performance computing, biomedical imaging, biotechnologies, etc.

The major axes of the Graduate School 

The Graduate School brings together more than sixty research laboratories that explore and develop new ways of designing, manufacturing, using and maintaining systems that contribute to responding through research and innovation to the major societal challenges that prefigure the world of tomorrow and guarantee the ecological and economic development of our societies.

The research teams work in close collaboration with numerous sectors of activity such as aeronautics, space, ground transport, energy, microelectronics and telecommunications. In order to meet the needs for transformation of the professions and tools of these industries, the teams develop original approaches, concrete and robust solutions based on fundamental sciences, and contribute to the contribution of new knowledge. These collaborations lead to upstream and partnership-based research actions over long periods of time through national and international collaborations, chairs or joint teams in themes bringing together several disciplines.

Within networks of international partner universities, the Graduate School brings the quality of research and its training offer in its field of expertise to the highest international level. It also contributes to supporting strong ideas and initiatives for the orientation of international training and research practices and policies while promoting international experiences for all students and staff.

The major axes are :

  • Material Science & Engineering
  • Biochemical, Chemical & Biomedical Engineering
  • Optical Science and Engineering
  • Telecommunication Engineering
  • Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering
  • Fluid and Solid Mechanics
  • Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics
