About the school

Ecole polytechnique is a leading French engineering school.

Ecole polytechnique is developing Master of Science and Technology degrees, bachelor degrees and executive education programs in addition to the historical polytechnicien engineering degree and PhD programs. Because of the identity of the school and its role in the development of science and technology, innovation management strategy and entrepreneurship are crucial in these programs.

Because of the scope and excellence of the research centers of the school and the strength of its alumni network, Ecole polytechnique is well positioned to play a leading role in the development of the ecosystem. Ecole Polytechnique offers thus an attractive environment for developing an original research program. In addition, the setup of IP Paris in 2019 reinforces the opportunities of collaborations with close partners of Ecole polytechnique also members of the Institute (Telecom, ENSTA, ENSAE).
