5. GOING BEYOND BORDERS
INSA Strasbourg actively works to go beyond borders, whether geographical (thanks to the Franco-German DeutschINSA course and numerous international partnerships) or disciplinary boundaries. In particular this has led to the creation of a cross-disciplinary engineering/architecture course, but also, more widely, to intersections between disciplines in different areas of training and research.
Going beyond borders also means mixing different teaching methods and promoting openness to other people and the world in general.
6. An exceptional research environment
Recognized at world level in the engineering and health fields. With four Nobel prizes awarded to scientists based in Strasbourg since 1987, the laboratories on the Alsatian site are enjoying a tremendous boom in research.
7. ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS
The School offers a dual architecture-engineering course. 100% of the architecture students and 20% of the engineering students on construction-related courses gain a bachelor’s degree in architecture and engineering on top of their respective architect’s and engineer’s qualification. INSA Strasbourg is the only school in France to award degrees to both engineers and architects.
8. Partner companies
Close links with industry, internships, guest speakers, R&D contracts, job fairs, consulting… Exceptional recruitment prospects: first employment after graduation in 0.7 months (on average).
9. AN IDENTITY ANCHORED IN A HISTORY AND VALUES
Created in 1874 when Strasbourg was part of Germany, the school had a dual vocation to train architects and builders, with the aim of building a bigger Strasbourg, as the city’s population had doubled. Hence the presence of surveyors, electrical engineers, civil engineers and architects. This multi-disciplinary spirit remains to this day. The school became INSA Strasbourg in 2003 when it joined the INSA group, whose values it found it shared: diversity and openness to others and the international world, to sport and culture.
10. BEING AN ACTOR IN A CHANGING WORLD
INSA Strasbourg is constantly changing in line with its environment. At every level, local, national and international, it offers solutions for the major challenges of our time: spatial planning, construction and industry have to integrate solutions conducive to sustainable development.
Inventive design, one of INSA Strasbourg’s strong research fields, helps to find innovative, relevant answers.
