École polytechnique (also known as “L’X”) is a world-class higher education and research establishment dedicated to sciences and technology, founded in 1794. The School granted a military status in 1804, and operates under the administrative supervision of the Ministry of Armed Forces. École polytechnique is a founding member of Institut Polytechnique de Paris, alongside four other Grandes Ecoles in engineering: ENSAE Paris, ENSTA Paris, Telecom Paris and Telecom SudParis.
École polytechnique is highly internationalized (40% of students and 40% of faculty members are international) and combines top-level research, academics, and innovation at a global level. Its various undergraduate and graduate-level programs – Bachelor of Science, “Ingénieur Polytechnicien” (Master’s level program), Master’s, and PhD – are highly selective and promote a culture of excellence with a strong emphasis on science, anchored in humanist traditions.
With its 23 laboratories, 22 of which are joint research units the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the École Polytechnique’s research center explores the frontiers of interdisciplinary knowledge to provide significant contributions to science, technology, and society.
École Polytechnique’s strategic model is based on three pillars: education, research and innovation.
Innovation and entrepreneurship plays an important role for the School’s development. A start-up incubator has been launched in 2015 to support the creation of start-ups, namely in Deep Tech.
Ever keen to attract the best talents amongst its students, faculty, research and administrative staff, École Polytechnique is resolutely committed to promoting social and gender diversity and equality.
École Polytechnique is committed to Sustainability.
