MINES ParisTech is a « Grande Ecole » centred on its research activities. It encompasses all fields of scientific knowledge thanks to 15 innovative research centres exploring five major fields.
- Earth Sciences and Environment
- Energy and Process Engineering
- Mechanical and Materials Engineering
- Mathematics and Systems
- Economics, Management, Society
With 260 research academics, 400 doctoral students and 60 post-doctoral students, MINES ParisTech ranks top among the Grandes Ecoles for the volume of contractual research.
The school’s laboratories are partly associated with the CNRS, the Ecole Polytechnique, INSERM, INRIA, Institut Pasteur, etc. Their research, at the intersection of many fields, has led to the emergence of new disciplines (geostatistics, mathematical morphology and automatic control systems) which are now studied by the scientific community and disseminated throughout industry and the services.

PSA Peugeot Citroën
Backed by more than 200 years of manufacturing history, PSA Peugeot Citroën has proven expertise in all areas of automobile manufacturing, from the drawing board to the production line to the showroom. This expertise is nurtured by three essential qualities for a major carmaker: a high level of innovation, extensive know-how and a continuous commitment to excellence.
Each year, PSA Peugeot Citroën devotes more than 5% of its Automotive Division sales and revenue to R&D. In 2011, the Group filed 1,237 patents, the largest number by a single filer in France for the fifth year in a row. R&D sets the foundation for our technological leadership in the years ahead, allowing us to respond to consumers’ mobility needs while reducing the automobile industry’s environmental impact.
Our five European research centres and our R&D facilities in Saõ Paulo, Brazil and Shanghai, China, are all focused on devising local solutions to meet each region’s needs and expectations.
