Research and innovation

IMT Lille Douai’s research and innovation activities ensure that the courses continually adapt to the rapid developments in engineering science and techniques.

Students are involved in the research laboratories throughout their studies. They acquire the foundations of innovation management on projects sponsored by companies and through the unrestricted use of the school’s FabLab. They can pursue their entrepreneurship project further with the incubator and benefit from a developed study programme for student entrepreneurs.

IMT Lille Douai students can supplement their knowledge through research training.
