450 professions !

Colloque sur la micro-cogenerationThis number represents the diversity and wealth of educational programmes offered at the CNAM. The list of diplomas and specialisations available to everyone, regardless of their age or background, covers approximately sixty professional fields, from chemistry and biology to law and psychology.
 
All of the CNAM’s educational programmes are developed at a high academic level to meet the needs of professionals. Industry professionals teach alongside established professors, thus  demonstrating the CNAM’s commitment to cultivate excellence in both practice and theory.

Completion of academic programmes is recognised by a diploma (bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate level), a RNCP qualification (National Register of Professional Certifications) or a certificate from the institution. Tens of thousands of working students participate in the CNAM’s programmes.
Laboratoires de la chaire de BiochimieNearly 60 tenured professors and as many university lecturers help maintain close contact with key industry developments.
 
The CNAM has collaborated with major private and public institutions to develop several chairs. Leading companies in the nuclear, railway, aero-spatial and health sectors have thus committed to developing and financing specific training programs.
 
The CNAM’s research mission is implemented through the permanent presence of 380 tenured teaching researchers in 22 laboratories, which welcome 350 doctoral candidates, including fifty who defend their dissertation every year in the Abbe Grégoire doctoral school and co-accredited doctoral schools.
