The BNEI represents all 130,000 engineering students by federating schools pupils of offices, whatever their status (public, private) and their parent ministry (higher education and research, industry, defence, agriculture, culture and communication).
Founded in 1901, is the only organisation representing engineering students. It is administered and led by student volunteers. Faithful to our values of independence from any political, confessional or trade union ideology, BNEI is positioned solely on the issues of student life, training and professional integration of engineering students, like the BDE and the elected students in central councils of institutions.
The BNEI is organised into nearly 30 Regional Offices of Pupils Engineers (BREI), thus promoting the sharing of good practices, and taking into consideration issues of policies of sites in student life.
