Presentation SIS

Located in Saint-Étienne, ED SIS is a multidisciplinary doctoral school that provides training principally within the fields of the engineering sciences, information and communication technologies and sciences, health and biology, not to mention particular fields such as applied mathematics and the earth sciences.

ED SIS benefits from the scientific resources and networks of two jointly accredited institutions (the Université Jean Monnet, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Étienne, the Ecole Centrale de Lyon), as well as of a partner institution (the Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Saint-Étienne).

Our doctoral school stands out for its strong tradition of cooperation with the technological research sector, in collaboration with numerous companies, constituting a real advantage for the future of our PhD students.

Each year, ED SIS welcomes nearly 400 PhD students, around half of whom are registered at UJM, and the remaining half at ENSM.SE and ECL/ENISE. 80 theses are presented annually by our doctoral students.

Relying on the activities of some thirty research teams, a majority of which work in close partnership with research bodies (CNRS, INSERM, etc.), ED SIS offers an especially rich scientific environment favourable to doctoral training in the context of the Euro-metropolis of Lyon-Saint-Étienne, while offering students a particularly pleasant quality of life.

In this manner, ED SIS contributes to the development of research and offers top quality accompaniment for the training of its PhD students who thereby enjoy their first real professional experience, validated by a doctorate degree recognized and respected the world over.
