 About the Ecole des Mines and the G2I Division

  ENSM.SE is 190 YEARS-OLD !

Founded during the restoration, the ENSM.SE was created by Royal decree on the 2nd August 1816. The ENSM.SE quickly built a elite school reputation, in the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, the School did not cease to develop and grow under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry.

In 2006, the IFAC INCOM'06 Symposium has been dedicated to ENSM.SE's anniversary with specific events during the symposium.

  • Recital of piano (Evgeni Koroliov) :
    Johann Sebastian BACH's Goldberg Variations.

  • The outstanding quality of Koroliov's reading is the overall sense of continuity from one variation to the next, while at the same time detailing the individual temperment of each. There are times when he offers outright bravura, but these are thoughtfully balanced by moments of poetry and charisma.
    Where other musicians have stamped their own idiosyncracies and left their interpretative fingerprints on the Goldbergs, Koroliov does not leave too dire an "impression". Instead, he has given it an eloquently attractive treatment that should have listeners - composers or otherwise - returning to it again and again.

  • Brief introduction of Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne.

The Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (ENSM.SE) is is an elite School (Grand Ecole: a sort of Ivy League School). Since 1816, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (ENSM.SE) has been producing outstanding industrial managers. Based on close links with leading French and international firms, the School is reputed to be one of the major scientific centers and a crucial hub of industrial research in France and in Europe. The school is structured around six research divisions: the Industrial Engineering and Computer Science, Process Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials Science, Microelectronics Engineering, and Engineering and Health. Because research is fundamentally linked to the raison d'être of the school, it is at the heart of the School activities. Publications, industrial contracts as well as the recognition of our expertise created the school's reputation.

Education and research are the two pillars of the success of ENSM.SE. Mission statement: respond to needs of enterprises by developing high level specialists ready to work effectively in the framework of globalization. Spirit of innovation, entrepreneurial, interdisciplinary, a high level of technical competences, flexibility and courage are the ingredients which make up our students. Living in heart of Europe, allied with best universities and institutions in the Americas and Asia, ENSM.SE finds itself poised to taken on new experiences, domains and challenges.

Under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry, the ENSM.SE is entering the 21st century with a dynamic and innovative approach. The Microelectronics Division in the new site of Gardanne (2003), and the Engineering and Health Division of Saint-Etienne (2004), recently founded, demonstrate the school's leadership in the forefront of high technology.

  • Brief introduction of G2I Division.
The Industrial Engineering and Computer Sciences Division (G2I Division) is the former Division of Computer Sciences created in 1970. The G2I Division develops advanced methods for analysis and optimization of complex systems, in particular manufacturing. There are five main research departments in G2I: Scientific Methods for Industrial Management (MSGI), Organization and Modeling of Industrials Systems (OMSI), Networks, Information, Multi-media (RIM), Multi-Agent Systems (SMA), and Mathematical Methods and Models for Industry (3MI).
Common threads running through all of these departments are complex interactions within organizations or networks, sophisticated approaches for management and control of systems, and utilization of state of the art computer science and operational research techniques. The Division is composed of 26 professors, 29 Ph.D. candidates and 5 full time employees. G2I is both research and teaching institution, with graduate and post graduate students.

G2I is known in both French and international scientific communities, the Division has numerous world wide projects. For example, participation in European Virtual Institute on Cooperative Demand and Supply Networks (CODESNET), Scheduling in Production Systems and Supply Chain (INTAS), Inter-Organizational Workflow Management (E-ALLIANCE), Cooperation and Information Sharing in Supply Chain (COPILOTE), Collaborative Design in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (COSMOCE), Internet-Based Intelligent Tool to Support Collaborative Argumentation-Based Learning (SCALE) projects, etc. In addition, G2I has privileged relationships with the likes of ST Microelectronics, France Telecom/R&D, Schneider Electric, CEA, EDF, Elf, Total, Péchiney, Comhurex and Eurocopter.
About 40 articles in prestigious scientific journals, 75 conferences, 400000 euros of industrial contracts, 10000 teaching hours constitute "steady state" our annual quota.
We invite you to visit our site and please consider the possibility of some type of cooperative endeavor with us. Feel free to contact us for any collaborative projects you have in mind.
