In France, the construction of roads, bridges and canals has long remained the exclusive competence of lords, associations of merchants or monastic orders. In the time of Colbert (a politician of the times of Louis XIV), more effective policies began to be pursued, and on February 14, 1747, a decree was issued establishing a special school for road engineers. Until 1794, the director of the school was Jean-Rodolphe Perrone, an engineer, a talented administrator, a scientist who participated in the development of the Encyclopedia of D'Alembert and Diderot.

Today, the ENPC Graduate School - Marne-la-Vallee relies on 12 research laboratories, offering master's and doctoral programs in mechanics, civil engineering, materials science, nuclear engineering, mathematics, computer science, environmental science, urban planning, transport, economics, sociology ... In addition to civil engineering and regional planning, the School conducts training and research related to the challenges of the transition to sustainable energy.
