Located in the campus of the University of Lille in France, the Ecole Centrale de Lille is a renowned Graduate Engineering school established in 1872 as the Institut industriel du Nord (IDN), with roots back to 1854 as the Ecole des arts industriels et des mines de Lille. It is one of the Centrale Graduate Schools.

Its different curricula lead to the following French & European degrees :

  • Ingénieur Centralien de Lille (Centralien Graduate engineer Master degree)
  • Masters Research & Doctorat (PhD doctorate studies)
  • Specialized Masters (Mastère MS Spécialisé).

Academic activities and industrial applied research are performed mainly in French and English languages. Students from a dozen of nationalities participate to the different curricula at Ecole Centrale de Lille.

The 1300 graduate engineer students at Ecole Centrale de Lille live in dedicated residential buildings[1] nearby research labs and metro public transports on a campus that is shared with 20,000 students from Lille University of Science and Technology.

Admission

Admission to the Centralien engineering Programme[2] implemented at Ecole Centrale de Lille is possible after two/three year scientific undergraduate studies and requires success to either:

  • an admission exam for Bachelors of Sciences : CASTing - Concours d'Admission sur Titre Ingénieur[3] (2-year curriculum)
  • a French nationwide selective exam with numerus clausus : concours Centrale-Supelec[4] (3-year curriculum including at least 2 years in France)
  • a selective application as per TIME double degrees[5] procedures applicable in Europe (2+2-year curriculum, including 2 years in France)
  • a selective application as per TIME Overseas double degree procedures applicable for selected Universities and Institutes of Technology [6] in Brasil, Canada, Chile, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea (2+2-year curriculum, including 2 years in France)
  • a selective application as per IMCC procedure for one-semester or one-year accredited post-graduate study period in France and USA (1 year curriculum)
  • a specific application process [7] for other international students[8] presented by their originating University.

The Centralien Programme typically lasts three years and results in a Master degree, augmented with international experience. Thus undergraduate studies + the Centralien Programme account for more than a cumulated 300 ECTS credit in the European education system.

However, graduate students enrolled in the TIME double degree procedure are required to spend two-years at Ecole Centrale de Lille and spend two years in the TIME-partner institute[9] for a total of four years resulting in a double master degree [10].

Not to mention that 18% students attending courses at Ecole Centrale de Lille are international students, all students enrolled in the Centralien Programme have an international exposure with opportunities to perform industry training and internship in entreprises worldwide, study abroad for 1 year in selected partner institutes providing Master (M2) courses, or be part of the 2+2 year TIME double degree programme.

In addition to the Centralien Programme, Ecole Centrale de Lille provides a range of Master's degree cursus in science and engineering that are opened to applicants who have completed their undergraduate studies in other institutes. Admission to Masters' second-year research cursus (M2R) is also possible for applicants who have performed their Master's first year (M1) in another institute and wish to focuse on a research topic associated to Centrale Lille research labs.

Admission to one of the 6 Masters[11] (M1+M2 or M2) from Ecole Centrale de Lille is possible upon an application assessment process based on academic criteria. Note that Masters/Research (M2R) workload is 60 ECTS credits and may be the starting point for doctorate studies. These 6 Masters and a larger number of Masters (M2) from other Centrale Graduate Schools and from partner institutes are also possible as electives for a double degree[12] alongside the Centralien Programme.

Admission to one of the 6 Specialized Masters (Mastère (MS) spécialisé) for Master-level specialization and continuing education in specific engineering and management fields is possible upon application assessment based on candidate profile. Prerequisite to apply for this specialized curriculum is to already hold a Master or an equivalent postgraduate degree in a different scientific field. MS lectures at Ecole Centrale de Lille are taught in English [13] and/or in French [14]. MS workload is 75 ECTS credits.

Research at Ecole Centrale de Lille

Historical building (1875-1968) - Institut industriel du Nord

Ecole Centrale de Lille is a member of the European Doctoral College Lille Nord de France[15] that provides 400 doctorate dissertations every year. Ecole Centrale de Lille delivers the Doctorate degree in 7 Engineering Sciences specialities[16].

PhD doctorate candidates shall preferably hold a Master of Sciences/Research degree prior to entering doctoral cursus. Academic doctoral research studies and industry-sponsored doctoral research studies can be performed in Ecole Centrale de Lille research labs.

PhD doctorate candidates and visiting researchers are welcome and should contact directly one of the 7 research labs[17] associated to Ecole Centrale de Lille.

  • Systems Engineering & Manufacturing : Laboratoire de génie industriel de Lille[23]
  • Materials Science & Processing : Research unit[24]

The students then get both the Centralien Graduate engineer Master's degree and a Master's degree in Architecture from the partner institute, with a capability to work both as an engineer and an architect, in whole Europe

The third year of the Centralien programme may be also spent either in another Centrale Graduate School or abroad for one year in selected Master (M2) programmes from partner universities.
