About

History

In Nancy, three universities were founded in the 20th century, among which a National Polytechnic Institute that combined several engineering schools. In Metz, the first university appeared in 1970. On January 1st, 2012, after several years of preparation, these four universities merged into one, forming Université de Lorraine.

Education

Université de Lorraine promotes innovation through the dialogue of knowledge, taking advantage of the variety and strength of its scientific fields, and aiming at the promotion of knowledge transfer to irrigate innovation and economic growth as well as the progress of fundamental science.

Research

There is no coincidence. The scientific thematic areas which have developed in Lorraine result from this region’s history, through the cross-fertilization of scientific fields present for a century, and through their highly increased interaction in the last decade.

Journey to the unknown
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am a good student and I already finished my masters. I loved the college and the study experience. However, it took me very long to adapt to the culture and I faced difficulties due to the language barrier. Overall my experience is so far was good but I faced little problems.

Great but not easy
