Training top-level engineers and conducting multidisciplinary research

ENSTA Bretagne is a prestigious French engineering school with an established reputation in the maritime, defense and high-tech sectors. Our excellence is recognized in many fields including all aspects of the naval industry as well as defense equipment and technology, and including the aeronautics, aerospace, automotive, energy, digital and information technology and research sectors.

Graduates of our general engineering and major programs are equipped with the skills they need to successfully design and build complex industrial systems against an international backdrop, as well as to carry out research, manage technological programs, or start their own business. 

ENSTA Bretagne is a public organization. Along with the other establishments under the auspices of the French Government defense procurement and technology agency (Ecole Polytechnique, ISAE-SUPAERO and ENSTA Paris), we nurture a culture of scientific rigor and excellence which ensures our strong reputation both in France and abroad.

We focus our expertise in a wide variety of fields to meet the technological challenges set by innovative firms. ENSTA Bretagne also trains weapon system design engineers, who make up about 15% of the student body.

The school has set out its main strategic aims in the « Contrat d’Objectifs de Performance » in terms of training, research, and international awareness; a contract which binds it to its governing body, the Ministry of Armed Forces.
