Message From the President

You have just enrolled at Université Gustave Eiffel, congratulations!

You have chosen a university that strives to develop professionalism, academic innovation and disciplinary excellence with a view to ensuring success for the greatest number of students, and fostering top-quality research.

Our very young University was created on 1st January 2020 and brings together Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, four schools – ESIEE Paris, ENSG, EIVP, EAV&T – and one research organisation, IFSTTAR. Operating on a human scale, we are committed to establishing and maintaining close relationships and paying attention to each of our users, on campuses that offer pleasant living and working environments on a daily basis.

Your Success

Your success is our central concern. Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée was ranked as one of the very best universities in terms of student success and value added, reflecting its ability to help our users accomplish their academic projects and professional plans. Université Gustave Eiffel is constantly seeking to improve its services for students and makes regular changes to its teaching methods, closely combining traditional courses with new academic approaches based largely on the integration of high-performance digital solutions that you will soon discover.

Our Guidance and Your Professional Integration

Our professionally oriented programs are renowned throughout France. More than 24% of students are enrolled in work-study programs (apprenticeships and professional training contracts), for example. Once again this year, more than half of you will gain experience of working in a professional environment (via internships, apprenticeships, etc.). Our excellent rates of professional integration at the end of our study programs are explained by these close links with socio-economic environments.

Your professors and our Information, Guidance and Professional Integration Department (SIO-IP) are always on hand to offer you guidance and help you define your plans.

Your Parliament

You are one of the reasons for the existence of our University; it has been created for you, and you should play an active role in university life. This is why, in addition to our traditional bodies (Administrative Board, Academic Board, etc.) we have created a
Student Parliament. This unique body in the French academic world is responsible for organising debates among students on issues concerning university policy, particularly with regard to student life.

Your Student Life

Université Gustave Eiffel has many student associations with a variety of aims, and the Maison de l'Étudiant (Student Union), located at the heart of the Marne-la-Vallée campus, organises numerous events: sports, film evenings, student radio,
concerts, parties, etc.

In addition to the main campus in Marne-la-Vallée, the other Université Gustave Eiffel campuses in Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Paris and Versailles offer many opportunities for training, research and student life activities that can be offered to you as an integral part of your course.

On behalf of the entire team of the University Presidency and all the University’s staff, I wish you a very happy and successful
academic year.

Hélène Jacquot-Guimbal
