Created in 2002, the SHS Department regroups the different disciplines from the field of human and social sciences which are oriented towards the training of engineers in the humanities : Management, Marketing, Languages, Sport etc

The Researchers of ENSTA Bretagne are active in the Centre de Recherche sur la Formation (Training Research Center) of the CNAM (EA 1410)
with teams from the CNAM, Centrale Paris and the University of Evry-Val-d’Essone. The director of the SHS Pole is the head of the “Organisation et Formation” (Organization and Training) axis.

Main research themes:

  • The curricula of the prestigious French grandes écoles engineering schools
  • Building the professional identity of engineers and managers in relation to social contexts, both while in engineering school and once in their professional activity
  • Engineering activities, especially in managing social-technical problems

As a multidisciplinary body, it brings together researchers in the fields of Educational Science, Management Science, Sociology and Economy.

Scientific objectives: The studies that ENSTA Bretagne – CRF lead aim to question the relationship between the social and the technical, in relation to identities, knowledge, organization and markets.
They integrate socio-cultural dynamics from a micro level (eg. the individual confronted with a technical system) to the macro level (eg. the geopolitical stakes of technological development).
