Institut National des Sciences Appliquées, Lyon (INSA), is a prestigious specialist engineering institution located in Villeurbanne, Lyon, France. It is a Grande École, an elite education school that is separate from, but parallel and often affiliated to, the structure of the French public university system. It is an affiliate of the University of Lyon, but being one of the largest engineering schools in Europe, it operates fully integrated research, education, and innovation programs.
Founded in 1957 by Rector Jean Capelle and philosopher Gaston Berger, INSA Lyon is the oldest and the largest institution of the INSA group. The institute was established to support continuing education and research to produce highly qualified engineers. To achieve this goal, the university adopts a five-year curriculum that focuses on the primary areas of engineering and science.
The curriculum begins with the Preparatory Level, an introductory two-year cycle that concentrates on general technical and scientific education. The preparatory cycle gives INSA engineers solid knowledge and core skills to help reorient them in mid-career. At this level, INSA provides the basic scientific, technical, and human knowledge that students need to excel at their engineering specialization.
After the preparatory level, students enter the second cycle—Masters of Engineering. This is a three-year cycle aimed at training students in nine specializations of engineering. These include Bioscience, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering and Urban Planning, Mechanical Engineering, Telecommunications, Computer Science and Information Technology, Energy and Environment Engineering, and Material Science and Engineering.
Upon completion of the five-year course, students may pursue a doctorate degree. The institution is co-accredited for eight doctoral schools that are divided into three categories: Hard Sciences, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences. The PhD degree runs for three years after the completion of the master’s degree. The high-quality programs have earned the institution many accolades including being named the best post-baccalaureate engineering school in France.
At present, the total number of students at Institut National des Sciences Appliquées, Lyon, is 5,400. A majority of these students or about 4,500 are engineering students, while about 650 are doctoral students. The school also employs over 700 academic staff and 670 administrative staff to support students in their research and academic endeavors.
The institution has two campuses: the main campus in the former location of LyonTech-La Doua and the other in Oyonnax. The main campus is home to the institution’s main research, administrative, and academic facilities. It has 11 residences with the capacity to accommodate more than 3,500 students. The Oyonnax campus is located at the heart of the Plastics Vallée and it has three residences. Additionally, INSA Lyon offers 23 laboratories and partners with three science-oriented schools in Lyon to facilitate world-class research.
