General description

Even if the prime aim of the Haute Ecole Leonard de Vinci is to provide training to students, it has set for itself three inter-related aims which ensure that the initial training is retained and built on:

  • Continued training which responds to the expectations of the professional world by ensuring a continuous updating of the expertise associated with economic, social and technical development
  • Applied research and service to the community which enhance the value of the teaching provided by the university college by nurturing cooperative relations with companies,
  • International relations which extend the above-mentioned aims beyond the four walls of the institution.
  • Three units of the Institut Supérieur Industriel, ECAM actively conduct applied research in the ICT domain.
