    Tell us about ITECH Lyon
    The university is located in Ecully, which is a small town next to Lyon. It is rather simple to go there by buses, but as we don't have a subway, it might be complicated to find public transportation for slack periods. The campus is very nice and peaceful. Accommodation can be found quite easily around the school, or near Vaise or Gorge de Loup. The professors of each speciality are competent (third year), but I cannot say the same for first year teachers (for more basic courses).
