The skills of the researchers at Polytech Lille cover a wide range of engineering sciences and are based around 5 poles :

>  Biological and food engineering
>  Mathematics and modelling
>  Mechanics and civil engineering
The physico-chemistry and molecular science of materials
>  Information and communication sciences and technologies

Multidisciplinary research is carried out leading to solutions being proposed for certain complex problems brought to light by industry.
