Ecole des Ponts ParisTech

The École des Ponts ParisTech is one of the world’s oldest engineering institutes. It has been training the elite of French engineers for over two centuries. In the last decades, it has developed beyond its more traditional fields and into an international institution, adapting to the changing demands of the modern world.

Four major types of programmes are offered:

  • Engineering programmes:
    Leading to a 5-year engineering degree (after undergraduate and graduate studies, or the 2-year graduate course alone, in both cases following entrance examinations), or to a master’s degree.
  • Master of Science:
    A professional or research-based, postgraduate degree of one or two years, offered either within the engineering institutes members of ParisTech, or within universities.
  • PhD:
    Trains students through innovative research work and taught courses. École des Ponts ParisTech delegated the attribution of its PhD degree to Université Paris-Est.
  • Post-Master professional certificate:
    A professional course of one to one and a half years; MBAs.

Besides traditional fields such as civil engineering, environment, transport, town and regional planning, mechanics, industrial management and logistics, École des Ponts now also offers advanced programmes in fields such as applied mathematics, economics and management. You will meet students and researchers from many countries and will be in constant contact with the business world. You will also discover the charms of an advanced, medium-sized institution, where personal relationships can develop in a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment.
