The École Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et des Microtechniques (ENSMM) is a French school of engineering. It is part of Polyméca, a network of schools focusing on mechanical engineering.


The school was founded in 1902 by the Université de Franche-Comté as Laboratoire de Chronométrie. In 1961, it turned to École nationale supérieure de chronométrie et micromécanique (ENSCM). Since the school is established in an area with a strong legacy on horology, ENSMM is deeply dedicated to the design and manufacturing of micro-mechanical devices and robotics.


It is located in the city of Besançon, France eastern area (4 hours from Paris, 2 hours and a half from Strasbourg and 2 hours and a half from Lyon).


Study in France[edit]

The school educates 250 engineers every year on 6 fields:

Students can choose to spend their last year within ENSMM or in one of the schools of the Polyméca network.

Study abroad[edit]

The ENSMM has concluded a partnership with several universities worldwilde:

It also belongs to the N+i international network.
