BDE - Student Association


The Bureau des Élèves (BDE) or Student Association (Association des Etudiants de Centrale Nantes - AECN) has many different functions. It is at the heart of the school's associative activities and student life in general.

What is the BDE?

The BDE (Bureau Des Elèves) is the body that oversees most of the associative life at Centrale. It’s a group of more or less forty people that were elected after two weeks of intense campaigning! It collaborates with the Bureau Des Arts and the Bureau Des Sports.

The BDE is your representative vis a vis other schools, teachers, alumni, companies and the administration. Throughout the year the BDE will organise social events and accompany you as you discover the campus, clubs and activities on offer at Centrale.

The BDE coordinates about 50 different clubs all actively contributing to the dynamic atmosphere et Centrale Nantes. Music, astronomy or board game clubs... You’ll be sure to find one that suits you, and if not, you’re free to create one! Some clubs also organise specific events like the Integration Week End, ski week, the Cruise, the NEMO…
