Areas of research and expertise

Civil engineering, transport systems and infrastructures, urban resilience, geomatics, the management of scientific and technical innovation... Research activities at Université Gustave Eiffel are organised along a number of lines. Originating from the university's five founding institutions, these areas of research and expertise are linked to the themes of the city of tomorrow. Bringing together laboratories, researchers and doctoral students, they help to offer multidisciplinary skills to conduct quality research for the benefit of society.
