A unique living place at the crossing of many cultures

As the only public engineering school in France to prepare executive personnel, engineers, researchers etc. and promote research studies and technology transfer for the wood and natural fibres industries, the ENSTIB is the logical partner for foreign institutions willing to develop exchanges and partnerships in these fields with and within France.

Dozens of conventions with foreign universities and institutions (Europe, Africa, Canada, Chile, ...) have been signed and are active.

Participation in the European programs : TEMPUS, PHARE, Leonardo da Vinci, COFURN, SOCRATES-ERASMUS... ENSTIB is a founding member of INNOVAWOOD.

For over 25 years, the ENSTIB has been concentrating its activities on the wood industry and has trained generations of engineers and executives holding today high-ranking positions in a field enjoying a continuous and steady development. Today, the School starts focusing on an additional, new field of expertise, namely natural and renewable fibre materials, within a Campus dedicated not only to wood but also to natural fibres. This still in association with the wood industry that brought about its renown in France and abroad.

The former students bear witness

After a preparation in biology in Montpellier for entrance to French engineering schools, I began the training at ENSTIB. I then discovered a region, a town and a big family. I had the opportunity to assert my appetite for challenge, an essential driving force leading to satisfaction, through a professional approach of the training provided plus a lot of ‘extracurricular’ commitments. I would highly recommend ENSTIB…
