Arts et métiers ParisTech

The clickable images and pictures further below present data about Arts et métiers ParisTech. Arts et Métiers ParisTech is the French leading engineering school in the fields of mechanics and industrialization. The school trained 85,000 engineers since its foundation in 1780 by the Duke of La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt. It is a "Public Scientific, Cultural and Professional Institution" (EPCSCP) under the authority of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Formerly named École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), it was a founding member of ParisTech, héSam and France AEROTECH. Arts et Métiers ParisTech consists of eight Teaching and Research Centers (CER) and three institutes spread across the country.


The primary goal of Arts et Métiers ParisTech is to provide an initial foundation in general engineering principles for the disciplines of mechanical engineering, power engineering and industrial engineering. Arts et Métiers ParisTech also offers continuing training for engineers and industry executives.

With 19 research laboratories and two PhD programs, Arts et Métiers ParisTech develops teaching and research activities in three main fields:

  • Mechanics, materials, processes
  • Fluids and energy systems
  • Design, industrialization, risk management and decision-making

The school's training programs include about 20 Research-Based Masters specialisms, about 20 Advanced Masters programs and PhD studies.

The school was founded in Liancourt, Oise, under its creator Duke of Rochefoucauld-Liancourt in 1780; it was originally meant to provide in-depth training for military dragoon officers children. After 1800, the institution became known as the École d'Arts et Métiers.

Under Napoleon's reign it was known as the "Ecole impériale des Arts et Métiers". He defined the school to provide "the Non-commissioned officers of the industry" but, in facts, the pupils usually used to become plant managers.

The second school of this kind was founded in 1804 at Beaupréau (near Angers), but was actually in use after a third one was already functional in Châlons-en-Champagne. The latest campus established was Metz (1997).

The regional campuses were transformed into engineer training institutions in 1907. In 2007, the school adopted the brand name "Arts et Métiers ParisTech" and no longer uses "ENSAM" in its publications.


Whether speaking about starting salary, involvement in research or international opportunities, Arts et Métiers ParisTech has been ranked among the French ten top engineering schools, along with other schools like Mines ParisTech, École Polytechnique, École Centrale Paris or École Supérieure d'Électricité (Supélec).
