The Ingénieur Polytechnicien program covers 4 years and is based on three objectives:
1- offering a multidisciplinary scientific education
2- adding a practical human education to this scientific training, along with an open outlook on the outside world
3- achieving a sound professional expertise based on excellent scientific knowledge, a dual expertise partly acquired outside The École and a number of placements spread throughout the course, allowing the student to go straight into working life.

  • skills in modelling and handling mathematical tools
  • ability to work in a team
  • a varying length of experience of research and company life, depending on the program/degree in question
