Télécom Bretagne and Mines Nantes launch their merger project to create a new IMT school

Following the positive decisions of their management boards, Mines Nantes and Télécom Bretagne have decided to go ahead with their merger project. It will lead, in two years’ time, to the creation of a new IMT school focusing on digital, energy and environmental transformations and their impact on society.

The decision was based on the conclusions of the feasibility study by the management of the two schools, which had been underway since May 2014, in connection with the internal and external stakeholders: trade union organizations, personnel, students, alumni, company representatives, local authorities and preparatory classes for the graduate schools etc.

The new school will be positioned at the intersection between the three main technical and societal issues of the 21st century: transformation through digital technology, energy transition and environmental matters.

To achieve this it will be based on two specific features:

  • a recognized position on questions of safety and security;
  • strong originality in communication, energy, social networks systems and their interconnections.

The administrative merger of the two schools will take place on 1st January 2017 and recruitment of the first class of general engineers will take place in September 2018.
Over the course of the coming months, in consultation with all the stakeholders, the methods of organization and the characteristics of the new school, based in Brest, Nantes and Rennes, will be defined.
