Created in 1966, INSA Rennes is a member of the INSA Group, the leading French network of state graduate and post graduate engineering schools, composed of 7 schools in France, 6 partner schools and 1 international INSA in Morocco.
Research and innovation are the key elements of INSA, which benefits from the expertise of its 225 professors and lecturers. With six laboratories of international renown, three technological platforms and numerous industrial partners, INSA Rennes stands out for two poles of excellence: Information, Communication Science & Technologies / Materials, Structures & Mechanics.
With around 2 000 students, INSA Rennes is a prestigious “Grande École”, a graduate and post graduate school. INSA Rennes delivers high level scientific training conforming to the highest official European standards:
- Masters of Science and Engineering (the French “diplôme d’ingénieur”): we offer a 5 five year integrated MSc.-Eng. Program.;
- Masters of Science;

Recognized for the excellence of their scientific training, French state “Grandes Écoles d’ingénieurs” have very selective recruitment, based on the academic performance of the students. Only the best students are accepted by INSA Rennes (1 in 7 candidates is admitted into the first year), on the basis of their academic file and of an interview.
Engineer training, being both scientific and technical, favors teamwork and a high employment rate through practical sessions, industrial projects and internships in companies, in France and abroad (11 months possible over the 5 years of study).
INSA Rennes offers also the opportunity to follow a Master of Science (8 Specialties) and a Doctorate in one of 6 laboratories.
