With 14 research units and two academic departments, the school of chemistry is one of France’s most important centres of expertise in the field. Thanks to its cutting-edge equipment and resources, it represents more than 350 permanent and non-permanent teacher-researchers, 150 full-time researchers and more than 250 technical and administrative staff members. The research laboratories are organized into 4 research federations focused on molecular chemistry, chemistry of materials, physical and theoretical chemistry, analytical and biological chemistry and chemical physics.

Sorbonne University is strongly committed to a transdisciplinary approach in tackling the grand challenges in the fields of ecology, earth and environmental sciences. Our school aims at generating and delivering the knowledge needed to manage natural environments and resources. The range of the topics we investigate include, among others, the climate, global changes and the functioning of our planet and its ecosystems.

The School of Engineering brings together the faculty’s staff whose training and research activities cover the fields of computer science, electronics, mechanics, energy and robotics. Combining 14 research units and 4 academic departments, it fosters approaches that are in line with the new strategies set out to ensure research development and interdisciplinarity in the fields of mechanics, computer science, electronics and robotics while focusing closely on intergrated systems engineering.

The School of Life Sciences provides comprehensive, highly valued, fundamental and multidisciplinary trainings and research opportunities to its students and researchers. The courses designed by its academic departments are meant to enable biology students and aspiring young researchers of the field to integrate the biology master’s programmes of Sorbonne University or any other university.
