Graduation ceremony

Future graduates, parents, families, alumni, professors, and representatives from industry and other bodies will gather at the Cité Nantes Events Center for this year's graduation ceremony. The ceremony features musical interludes and we'll hear from graduates on their studies and time abroad. More info on the ceremony.


Lecture and demonstration "Piloting a drone with the mind: is it science fiction?"

Teams from Nantes University Hospital and Centrale Nantes will present this technological revolution known as BMI (Brain-Machine Interface). It can control objects or communicate through analysing brain activity; drone piloting being one of the possible applications. Vincent Roualdes, a neurosurgeon at Nantes University Hospital, wants to use these mind-control techniques for patient rehabilitation post stroke or amputation. An exciting prospect for patients with disabilities! The team: Vincent Rualdes, neuro-surgeon at the Nantes University Hospital - Aurélien Van Langhenhove, engineer at Nantes University Hospital, Saïd Moussaoui, member of faculty at Centrale Nantes and Pierre, final year student at Centrale Nantes.
