The Grenoble Institute of Technology is one of Europe's leading technology universities, at the heart of innovation from more than a century.
Ideally located in the heart of the French Alps, Grenoble Institute of Technology is one of Europe's leading technology universities. It offers a range of engineering, masters and doctoral courses both in French and in English, driven by world-class research in 37 laboratories, and 6 state-of-the-art technology platforms, developped in partnership with other institutions.
Grenoble Institute of Technology's mission is to empower new generations of engineers to respond to global challenges in the fields of energy, the digital world, micro- and nanotechnologies, the environment, as industries of the future. For 120 years, Grenoble Institute of Technology has been instrumental in developping innovative solutions with industrial partners to support continuous technological advances and economic growth.
Grenoble Institute of Technology is involved in major development projects such as Minatec, Minalogic (micro and nanotechnology and embedded software) or TEneRRDIS (renewable energy) industrial clusters. With its solid combination of teaching, research and business promotion, Grenoble Institute of Technology plays a key role in making Grenoble one of the most attractive scientific and industrial locations worldwide.
With 38 laboratories, some of which are shared with the CNRS (French national scientific research centre) and the other three Grenoble universities, research is one of Grenoble Institute of Technology's strengths.
Right from the outset, created to meet the needs of industrial groups in the Grenoble area, Grenoble Institute of Technology has developed its engineering courses and programs in close relationship with industry, and has a well-developed business promotion policy.
International cooperation has always been a priority for Grenoble Institute of Technology, developing programs alongside renowned technology universities in Europe, North and South America and Asia. The Institute is proud to host research and teaching fellows and students from right across the world, and to encourage its students and staff to travel abroad to work in partner universities or do internships in foreign companies.
