Thanks to their "homemade" sailboat, the ENSTA Bretagne team scooped bronze in the international Hydrocontest-X competition in the "long distance race" category in 2019.

2021 "Cap Ingénieuses" prize and certification awarded to the "L codent L créent" initiative

The "L codent L créent" initiative is aimed at sparking the interest of girls attending high school in IT and engineering by introducing them to programming in the "Python" language. For a few years now, male and female ENSTA Bretagne students have been travelling to partner high schools to give them an insight into programming.

SIA (French Society of Automotive Engineers) Trophy) 

Promotion of professional ethics (ROTARY/CGE/UNESCO)

Shell Eco Marathon

Shell Eco-marathon is an international student automotive engineering competition where contenders must try to travel the furthest on one liter of fuel. In 2018, the team finished 18th out of 36 with their electric prototype (after several years of excellent results with internal combustion engines).

EDHEC Sailing Cup

"ERL EMERGENCY" International Robotics Competition

ERL Emergency is one of the autonomous robot competitions inspired by the Fukushima accident. The aim is to send autonomous robots into a mixed terrain area, inaccessible to man, where they collaborate to explore the zone, detect any problems (leaks, fires…), find people in distress and bring them first aid.
