About Us

Stemming from the union between the Planning Institute of Paris (Institut d’Urbanisme de ParisUniversité Paris Est Créteil) and the French Urbanism Institute (Institut Français d’UrbanismeUniversité Gustave Eiffel), the Paris School of Urban Planning (École d’Urbanisme de Paris – EUP) is the first school of its kind in France and one of the most important ones in Europe.

About Us

The Paris School of Urban Planning is primarily a training centre offering a unique master’s training programme called "Urban Planning and Development" with an intake capacity of nearly 400 students in their first and second year of master’s degree.

With over 50 teachers-researchers, in a rich environment with many institutions and schools interested in the city and territories established in Cité Descartes (ENPC - Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, Architecture school, IFSTTAR, Efficacity, Advancity, etc.), the EUP has many assets to pursue its ambitions and thus become an international reference school on city and the urban fabric.


▪ Our 3 main ambitions:

Developing and internationalizing all of its training courses and complete them with others, especially in terms of continuous training. We also put the emphasis on an innovating learning approach based on real-life professional situations and individual follow-up of knowledge and know-how acquisition.

Playing an essential liaison role between the training and the research programmes by developing and deepening the relations between the research laboratories about urbanism and the Labex Futurs Urbains.

Becoming a leading place for public debates about the great urban challenges and the urban fabric in Ile de France, France, Europe and throughout the world.

Cities and regions are constantly changing. In recognition of this, 6 educational and research institutions with acknowledged expertise in the fields related to sustainable cities are combining their skills and know-how to create a new type of university of international standing: Université Gustave Eiffel. The outcome of a joint history that began over 20 years ago, since 1 January 2020 this new institution has brought together a university (UPEM), a research institute (IFSTTAR), a school of architecture (Éav&t) and three engineering schools (EIVP, ENSG and ESIEE Paris).
