Institute of Science and Technology

INSA Lyon is a leading engineering school in France, and its humanist values have been the foundation of its model for over 60 years.

Created in 1957 by the philosopher Gaston Berger and the rector Jean Capelle, INSA Lyon is the first establishment of the INSA Group, which has 6 establishments in France.

INSA engineers know how to conduct their careers in a spirit of great adaptability, a pioneering approach to science and technology and true social responsibility.
This is a trademark that still bears the imprint of its two founders. We owe them the humanist commitment of INSA and its model, which is open to all differences in origin, culture and social background.


As the first post-baccalaureate school in France, INSA's science training is primarily recognised for its 5-year engineering course. However, it is still possible to enter INSA directly for a Master of Science, or to come for an international double degree or exchange.

Since the creation of INSA Lyon, "Humanities" have been at the heart of the training of engineers open to the world.
In addition to language, philosophy and culture, engineering students benefit from training dedicated to business knowledge and management.

These courses integrate ethical reflection, implementing innovative and active teaching methods, which aim to offer students the opportunity to learn autonomy, responsibility and citizenship while encouraging creativity and innovation.
