Hight-level scientific training

Polytech Lyon is part of a university at the forefront of innovation, recognized nationally and internationally in the fields of science, technology, health and sport. Lyon 1 combines quality education and excellent research with 68 research laboratories in an attractive environment. Polytech Lyon students benefit from this exceptional environment during their studies.

A training program with an international outlook

Polytech Lyon has always worked with the desire to encourage its students to take a critical look at the environment that surrounds them. One of the school’s goals for many years, and even more so since it became part of the Polytech group, is to be open to the international scene. As a guarantee of expertise, determination and ambition, an international dimension has been an essential element in the field of study for several decades, particularly in engineering courses.

Our international outlook is also reflected in the fact that we welcome foreign students who wish to complete their studies in France, either for study or internship purposes, or as part of a degree program.

Student Life

Polytech Lyon students benefit from a rich and varied student environment and city. Events are regularly organized (festivals, conferences, sports events), the community life is very lively and many services are available to students. There are also extracurricular activities such as sports classes and art workshops. Some of the most active associations include: BDE (Student Union) of Polytech Lyon and its three clubs: the BDS (sport), the BDA (activities and arts) and coming soon the BDP (peips), POLYENCO – Junior-industrie de Polytech Lyon, RIR ROBOTIQUE – Robotics of Roanne’s scientific engineers, etc.
