The École nationale supérieure d'arts et métiers (ENSAM) is one of 205 French engineering schools accredited as of 1 September 2019 to award an engineering degree.
Arts et Métiers ParisTech is one of the oldest engineering schools in France, founded in 1780 by the Duke of La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt. Reporting to the Minister in charge of Higher Education, it is today the largest French engineering school in terms of enrolment (more than 6,000 students between engineering students, master's and doctoral students) and is a reference in the teaching of industrial and mechanical engineering. A single school with a network of eight campuses throughout France, it occupies premises dedicated to teaching and research. These premises are historical monuments (such as the Abbey of Cluny) as well as modern buildings (CER of Metz).
