A little history

An engineering school born of the merger of ESIA and ESIGEC

In 2004, the teaching teams at the École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs d'Annecy - ESIA and the École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Chambéry - ESIGEC launched an ambitious project to create a single engineering school in the Savoie region.
Validated by the Board of Directors of the Université de Savoie in early 2006, this project became a reality on July 5, 2006, with the publication in the Journal Officiel of the decree creating the École Polytechnique Universitaire (EPU) of the Université de Savoie, in place of ESIA and ESIGEC. The EPU is a Centre Polytechnique Universitaire within the meaning of article L 713-2 of the French Education Code.
On July 19, 2006, the governing bodies of the Réseau Polytech decided to accept Polytech Annecy-Chambéry into its prestigious national network.
