LEARNING CENTRE des Ponts, A PLACE OF INSPIRATION…
Today, the School is being transformed to reflect the priorities of the energy, ecological, and digital transitions, and to train engineers and researchers who will build the sustainable world of tomorrow. Its strategic plan 2025 is founded on academic excellence, international openness, and digital scholarship. Learning Centre des Ponts is one of the flagship projects in this plan.
What is a learning center?
A learning center is a digitally connected space dedicated to the dissemination and sharing of knowledge. More than a library, it is a place where you can access online scholarship and content, work solo or in a group, prepare projects, and take advantage of digital technologies in a functional and friendly environment.
In concrete terms, from academic year 2017-2018, the current library will be remodelled to become a learning center, more suited to the project-based learning involved in the training of engineers.
Learning Centre des Ponts will have a surface area of 800 m2 and will offer its users:
- 220 seats,
- 6 isolated project rooms,
- relaxation and discussion spaces,
- flexible furnishings,
- touchscreen PCs and interactive whiteboards,
- longer opening hours.
The purpose of Learning Centre des Ponts is to offer students the best possible working conditions in a studious and stimulating environment, geared to the needs of students and designed as a place of inspiration, learning, and collaboration.
Learning Centre des Ponts will open September 2017.
