Since its creation, ESITC Paris has always implemented a Research policy within its curriculum, with the objective of training engineers aware of environmental issues and sustainable development, as well as of open to scientific and technical developments specific to their area of expertise. The school has always been committed to developing the curiosity, critical sense and spirit of initiative of its engineering students, qualities that are essentials for defining and implementing large-scale projects.
In collaboration with teacher-researchers and partner laboratories, training through research modules have been introduced from the second year of the preparatory cycle, enabling students to acquire research methods and tools and to understand the research environment. In a constant concern for evolution, the school collaborates with other universities, in order to combine the know-how of each, for example to develop, to experiment and to test technical and environmental performances of new materials.
In 2021, ESITC Paris wishes to develop research themes around Intelligent, Agile and Responsible Construction for a sustainable and low-carbon development, which is the basis of the school's Research Laboratory and the 3 experimental or digital platforms associated with the teaching and training of student engineers and apprentices. :
