The international dimension is a real aspect of MINES ParisTech. Life at the School will bring you in contact with students from more than 50 different countries. Intermixing of students from different years. The research centres are open to international exchange. Students are required to have a command of two foreign languages and placements lasting between four and twelve months in a foreign institution for engineering students are a strong feature of the School’s international vocation.



MINES ParisTech, the École des Mines de Paris, is one of the oldest French higher education institutions in engineering. While its inspirational model has not changed, its teaching methods and its research have been anticipating and accompanying its times ever since 1783.


You possess curiosity and you wish to move towards tomorrow’s world, you will then see that research at MINES ParisTech is based on creativity, and anticipating a constantly evolving world; with its wide range of disciplines, the School is a leader in many areas. Here are five major fields in which it excels:

  • Earth sciences and environment
  • Energy and process engineering
  • Mechanical engineering and materials
  • Mathematics and systems
  • Economics, management and society


The 286 research professors provide the students with high-level teaching. The limited size of the annual intakes gives them an opportunity to make use of innovative pedagogical methods in correlation with the world of industry, society and future aspirations.
