Renovation of the Institute of Hispanic Studies

The Institute of Hispanic Studies (IEH), located at 31 rue Gay Lussac, is one of the 16 historic Ile-de-France buildings of the Sorbonne. Built in 1929 and later built even higher in the early 1960s, the IEH has an area of 1,760 square meters over six floors. Today it is an aging building that requires renovation to become truly a “landmark,” for excellence in learning and teaching. The architectural project will rethink the functional and technical aspects of the site, but also, and above all, bring out the historic value of the institute and make it a place of prestige and a genuine communication tool (permanent exhibitions, lectures, international events …).

The Great Learning Library, at the heart of the Pierre & Marie Curie Campus

By fostering the sharing of ideas and practices, the University Library is organized according to a wide variety of potential uses. Built on the “learning center” model, wholly integrated with the academic programs as well as interdisciplinary, this site symbolizes the implementation of a new pedagogy. In its 3,500 square meters, it disposes of 700 seats in the reading room, 26 individual rooms, 26 group rooms (2-6 people), 150 desktop and laptop computers, an innovative classroom equipped with movable furniture and interactive multimedia tools, a pedagogical space dedicated to work meetings, classes, or student-teacher meetings. Through its transversal nature, it offers all Sorbonne University’s students a modern, convivial place to work in a variety of ways.

The perspective of Anne-Catherine Fritzinger, Sorbonne University’s Director of Libraries


A veritable beacon on the Sorbonne University campus, the University Library constitutes a remarkable illustration of how a tool that is well-planned and supported by donors can contribute to the success of those who make use of it. As Anne-Catherine Fritzinger emphasizes, “Since the library’s conception, we’ve been guided by the ambition of offering a vast number of services, and work spaces in tune with the diverse needs of students and professors.” Its creation has been supported particularly by a donation from a Sorbonne University alumni that emphasizes the inter-generational dimension at the heart of the library’s mission. Extensive and stimulating, designed for studying, documentary research, and individual or group work, the space overcomes the problems of traditional libraries linked to a conflict between the various uses. Here they are side by side, respecting and complementing one another in a space enhanced by undeniable architectural qualities in terms of aesthetics, light, and acoustics. “The new connected, interactive methods of working are at the heart of this project,” underlines Fritzinger, for whom the importance of the library stretches far beyond Sorbonne University: “In order to continue to stand out, it must continue to integrate new services, tools, spaces, furnishings, restauration projects, exhibitions … for which donations are essential.”

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).
