The Fédération Gay-Lussac brings together 19 French chemistry and chemical engineering schools.
These 19 schools, through their teaching, research and continuing education, work together to make known, develop and promote courses in chemistry and chemical engineering. This is done in order to offer you an education course which is as complete as possible!
We hope that among these 19 schools, you will find the one of your dreams, and that chemistry, a sector with a great future, leading to numerous employment possibilities, linked to the concept of sustainable development, will attract you and offer the professional perspectives that you are looking for and which correspond to you.
In France, chemistry is the 2nd most important sector of industrial activity, after the automobile industry and before the agro-food sector. It represents a turnover of 93.5 billion euros. It is a very vast discipline where innovation is essential, and which can be found in a number of business sectors: health, beauty/cosmetics, safety and the environment, energy, agro-food, sport, buildings, automobile, electronics, nuclear, computing… The chemical industry manufactures our everyday products: all objects based on plastic, technical materials (textiles, sports materials…) or in construction (insulation, paints …), medicines, cosmetic products, and products improving vegetal production … The engineers coming from the schools in the Fédération Gay-Lussac (FGL) are therefore present in all the large industrial and socio-economic sectors, where they work in research, development, engineering, production, control, and technical and marketing development... Chemistry is for all talents!
All the schools in the FGL give a sound education in the general aspects of chemistry and chemical engineering. Each school also offers options and specializations, covering all domains.
