Mechanical & process engineering

serving innovation


With 250 permanent scientists and technicians specialised in fluid and solid mechanics, soft matter physics and process engineering, we develop experimental and numerical tools to contribute to technological innovation in the fields of energy management and conservation, propulsion and aerospace, process engineering, civil engineering, natural risks assessement, biorefinery, and health

 

Our ambition

In the last 30 years, research in mechanical and process engineering has provided a significant contribution to progress in simulation and modeling tools used by design engineers, decision makers and public services.

Today's scientific and technological challenges arise from new issues: sustainable development, alternative resource management, green technologies, environmental impact reduction, risk management, health care...

Our ambition is to take a step further in the understanding of the complex mechanisms involved in materials, in industrial processes, in environmental phenomena, as well as in living organisms, and contribute to the development of new engineering solutions for the 21st century increasingly complex challenges"


 

Tec21 works to tighten the links between research,
education and industry


 

We contribute to the implementation of educational programs with a multidisciplinary approach providing practical experience to future engineers
