All of this in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere and under the guidance of distinguished researchers and leading figures of the business world.

History

École Polytechnique is an historic institution. Founded in 1794, it holds a leading role in the French academic tradition – Poincaré, Ampère, Schwartz and Fresnel are just a few of the prestigious scientists to have studied here.

Education

Academic programs are formed and structured in close collaboration with industry and alumni. They are strongly supported by an International Advisory Panel that comprises leading figures from major public and private sector companies as well as senior representatives from government and academia.

The academic courses are developed and delivered by world-class faculty from Ecole Polytechnique, associated Research Centers, national and international academic partners as well as by top-level industry professionals, ensuring a depth of pertinent theoretical and practical content.

The Graduate degree programs also include company visits and conferences held by business leading figures.

Research

École Polytechnique's Research Center includes 22 world-class scientific departments in 8 major fields addressing today’s most pressing social and technological challenges through interdisciplinary and cross-functional projects. Most of them are joint research units with the world-renowned French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). École Polytechnique has always integrated research into all its academic programs and in close consultation with industry.

Career

We ensure that our students have all the necessary support to launch their professional or research careers following their course of study. The numbers say it all:

  • 99% of Polytechnicien Engineers are employed within six months of graduating

Housing services

We guarantee housing for all of our new incoming Bachelor students.

Currently, we provide our students with individual dorm rooms of 18 square meters, furnished with a bed, a cupboard, a fridge and a private bathroom. All rooms have access to Internet. Students share a common kitchen, where they can cook and prepare their own food with others, or they can choose to eat in the campus cafeteria or restaurant.

Please note that accommodation costs 550€ per month (subject to change from one year to another) and is not included in the tuition fees.

Medical services

Please note that registration with the French Public Health Insurance (social security) is compulsory in France when you enroll in a Higher Education Institution.

Except for :

- Students coming from any of the 27 EU countries, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway or Switzerland, having the European health insurance card (EHIC).

- Students from Quebec

Campus life

With only around 3600 students and a campus of 164 hectares, l'X is a relatively small university, which can be refreshing if you have felt lost in larger institutions. Our students make up a close-knit community and though you will blend in, you certainly will not fade away. Our international students contribute to the diversity of our small community – over 60 different nationalities are represented on campus, with 30% of the student body and 39% of the faculty coming from abroad.

Sports facilities

Sports have always formed a very important part in students' education at École Polytechnique. We truly believe that sports will help you develop qualities and skills such as sense of discipline, leadership, teamwork, spirit of healthy competition and fair play, confidence in oneself and ethics.

Sport is also an excellent way of breaking down barriers and bringing people of different backgrounds together. In particular, we consider sport as one of the best ways to facilitate the integration of international students on campus (and more generally in France).

Student clubs

The École Polytechnique's vibrant student life can be attributed to the wide range of associations available to students. In total, polytechnicians take part in almost 250 associations in a great variety of cultural, artistic, social, scientific, religious and sporting activities.
