ESIEA (university)

The Ecole superieure d'informatique, electronique, automatique (ESIEA) is a French engineering school. Its five-year general engineering program focuses on the fields of Science and Technology relating to computing, electronics and automation.

In August, 1957, a team of researchers camped in a tent on the Mont Blanc glacier, Mer de Glace, facing Montenvers, taking ice measurements with electronic equipment, dreamed of creating an engineering school for electronics applications. The following year, in August 1958, Maurice Lafargue, one of the engineers from the glacier officially founded ESEA (Graduate School of Electronics and Automation Applications), a school to train engineers in interfaces and scientific applications, in Paris, rue Antoine-Dubois.

In 1973 the school moved to an old garage on Vesalius street in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, close to Rue Mouffetard and the Latin Quarter. Two years later, in 1975, the school becomes the property of the Association of Alumni and Friends of ESIEA (AAEA-ESIEA), a non-profit (Law 1901).

In 1985, The Commission for engineering qualifications (CTI) enabled ESIEA to deliver the ESIEA engineering degree. Growth continued with the opening of a facility in Ivry sur Seine and the permanent extension of their premises.

This ESIEA graduate system is divided into three blocks:

The curriculum ESIEA is organized in three cycles and five levels:
