École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon or CPE Lyon is a French engineering school, located in Villeurbanne, near Lyon.

Degrees

CPE Lyon offers Master's level degrees in two different disciplines,[2] and offers three different diplomas.[3]

The chemistry and chemical engineering degrees involve the conception, synthesis, and manufacture of new molecules with high added value, which necessitate being “first on the market." They also involve a focus on environmental issues and sustainability.

The electronics, telecommunications, maths, and computer science degrees include a global education in electronics, microelectronics, computer science, image and signal processing, telecommunications, and applied math.

CPE Lyon is also well known for its research in organic chemistry, analytical sciences, chemical and process engineering, microelectronics, and image processing.

Selected students can prepare a Ph.D. in one of the CPE Lyon research laboratories (50 new students per year on average).

History

In 1883, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) was founded by Jules Raulin, a student of Louis Pasteur. In 1919, Victor Grignard, awarded in 1912 with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, became director. In that same year, the Institut de Chimie et Physique Industrielles de Lyon (ICPI) was founded by Professor Lepercq. In 1933, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) was awarded with the Légion d'Honneur by the Ministry of War, for services rendered to the nation.

In 1993, Hubert Curien, former chairman of the European Space Agency (ESA), former president of the CERN and former minister was appointed President of ESCIL. One year later, in 1994, the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (ESCIL) and the Institut de Chimie et Physique Industrielles de Lyon (ICPI) merged to form the current École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon (CPE-Lyon).

In 2005, Jean Dercourt, Secretary of the French Academy of Sciences, was appointed President of the École Supérieure de Chimie Physique Électronique de Lyon (CPE-Lyon).
