Description of our department

For a long time, « arts » and « industrial creation » were the main components of our curriculum. Lately, we have chosen to make things simpler and clearer by using the more actual label of « design ». According to the philosophy of Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, our new curriculum enters the field of « applied sciences » and aims to produce teachers who are also truly designers. Beyond the teaching certification, the practice of design enables our students to elaborate their own reflexions in order to feed their doctoral research.


Admission to Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan  :

Following the rules of ENS de Cachan, the department of design submits all its applicants to a series of written and oral examinations called « Concours d'entrée ».

Regarding the preparation to « Agrégation », only students from our school ENS de Cachan may benefit from our year-long training session. Right now, our department does not accept students from the outside at that level.
