Founded in 1952, ENSEA is a leading French Graduate School located in Cergy-Pontoise (30 km from Paris). As public institution, ENSEA delivers nearly 240 diplomas each year and recruits students from ‘classes préparatoires’ (conjunct entrance exam as in Centrale-Supelec, Arts et Métiers Paris Tech), from DUT-BTS, ATS as well as students who hold a two-year university diploma (initial schooling and continued learning).

Students are highly encouraged to diversify their curriculum by choosing a specialized program, spending time abroad, or getting a double degree obtained in conjunction with an oversea partner university and by taking part in fulfilling campus activites.

ENSEA also includes two worldwide-renown research laboratories: ETIS, UMR CNRS, specialized in data processing system, and QUARTZ, a shared laboratory, focused on engineering science and at ENSEA, specialized in Control of Systems, Mechatronics and Power Electronics.
