Founded in 1994, ENSAI has been located on the Ker Lann Campus since 1996, in the countryside just outside Rennes. ENSAI is part of the network of prestigious higher education establishments in France known as Grandes Ecoles, or specialized graduate schools. ENSAI’s education trains its students to become qualified, high-level managers in information processing and analysis. After graduating from the statistical engineering or INSEE civil servant statistician programs, our students have three-fold expertise in statistics, econometrics, and computer science, which is universally recognized in all professional sectors.
ENSAI is located near Rennes on the Ker Lann campus, where there are about six thousand students. This location is ideally suited and offers pleasant working and living conditions with a range of facilities covering accommodation, catering, sporting activities, and associations. Practicing sports regularly is not only a satisfying activity on an individual basis, but it is also a good way to socialize and get to know people. As a means of encouraging a balanced life, playing sport regularly quickly becomes a source of well-being, physical fitness, and an occasion for convivial moments since it brings the experience of shared adventure and going beyond one’s limits. The Student Union (bureau des élèves) coordinates all the student associations. It oversees the running of a number of clubs: photo, cinema, chess, music, skiing, theatre, rock, humanitarian, lectures, debates, and games. It manages the school cafeteria and organizes the new student orientation weekend, the annual ski trip, and cultural and entertainment evenings.
