120 Years ITECH

18th of October 2019

Espace Jean Gabin – Chaponnay

ITECH is turning 120… et alors ?

In 1899, the French School of Tannery opened it’s doors to its first students. 120 years later, in favour of merges and insightful developments, the School of Tannery became ITECH, an Engineering school specialised in polymers and training over 500 students/year.

With the professional expertise of the schools that made up its identity, ITECH managed to successfully harness the synergy of its teaching and the close ties it still maintains with industry.

To celebrate its anniversary, ITECH is organising on the 18th of October 2019 a gathering with those who’ve participated in its construction and to its recognition (alumni, federations, industrialists, institutions), but also those who continue the backing to this day and its future endeavours.

This event will be followed by the traditional Graduation ceremony.


Invitation 120 ans


*For the Graduation Ceremony, ITECH Alumni will be able to participate to this in an adjacent room to the ceremony by video retransmission due to the fact that the seats are reserved for graduates’ family members, as well as partner industrialists and federations. The Alumni will then be able to rejoin the group for the cocktail and the evening.
