Institut Polytechnique de Paris

The Institut Polytechnique de Paris is a public higher education and research institution comprising five prestigious French engineering Schools: École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, Télécom Paris and Télécom SudParis. Under the aegis of the Institute, they bring together two centuries of expertise to pursue two major goals: to develop world-class training programs and cutting edge research. Building on the strength of its five founding institutions, the Institut Polytechnique de Paris has established itself as a leading education and research institution in France and internationally. École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, Télécom Paris and Télécom SudParis have contributed to major industrial and technological breakthroughs over the last two centuries. Their alumni include Nobel prize-winners and prominent figures in the worlds of politics, business and research.

The Institut Polytechnique de Paris develops multidisciplinary education and research programs drawing on a community of 1,000 faculty members in ten disciplinary departments. This multidisciplinary approach creates new synergies between different fields, for example by promoting the application of new technologies to traditional engineering fields such as physics or transportation. Knowledge transfer to the economy and society is at the heart of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris’ mission and its network of incubators and dynamic ecosystem helps drive cutting-edge innovation and cultivate students’ inventiveness.
