Study exchange with Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France

University Polytechnic Hauts-De-France

Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France was founded in 1964 as the Centre d’Enseignement Superieur Scientifique de Valenciennes, as an offshoot of the University of Lille. It took its current name in 2017. It attained full university status as the University of Valenciennes and Hainault-Cambresis in 1979.

It is located in Valenciennes in the North of France.

It is spread across four main campuses. The original Mont Houy campus in Valenciennes is large enough to have three stops on the city tramway, which opened in 2013. This second site is located in Tertiales. Annexes were opened at Cambrai in 1982 and Mauberge the following year, and a new campus opened at Mauberge in 2013. Other facilities are the Transalley Technopark, opposite the Mont Houy campus and an audio-visual research centre based at a former coal mine, now a UNESCO Heritage site, at Arenberg.
