Teaching Department

Social Sciences, Modern Languages and Sports Department


Being a versatile engineer is not only about acquiring a general scientific and technological culture, but also about being able to cope with the diversity and complexity of the world and humanity. For many of our students, scientific approaches different from those of the subject sciences have yet to be discovered. Within the framework of the orientations defined by Centrale Nantes, the empowerment of engineering students and their preparation for the world of business, the development of their critical sense, the internationalization of training and relations with companies, the CLES department is in line with the standard for the development of the Human and Social Sciences in Engineering Schools.
