BACHELOR’S THESIS

 

The Bachelor thesis is a lab-based research internship students are required to complete in their sixth semester (second semester of Year 3). The internship typically takes place over at least an eight-week period and is undertaken in a lab at École Polytechnique or at a partner institution, when possible. 

This 14 ECTS-credit internship provides students an opportunity to pursue a directed, focused, and individual research project that immerses students in the life of a research lab. Consistent with the Bachelor Program’s focus on research, students apply rigorous research methods to their project, while developing strong working relationships with research lab members, and experiencing first-hand the functioning of a lab.

3RD YEAR

The PA Economics is a one-year specialization program in Economics. The program emphasizes the quantitative aspects of economic analysis and relies mainly on modeling and game theory for the theory part, and on econometrics and data analytics for the empirical part. Although various courses are based on case studies, applications in real examples and data analysis, the main focus of the program will be on scientific studies aimed at engineers, and thus the provided courses will use strong scientific methodologies. The program is aimed to the students who expect to develop their career in the public sector (economic administration, ministries, regulation agency, central banks, international organization) or the private sector (consulting in business strategy, industry, bank, M&A, insurance, Financial services), or who wish to become entrepreneurs.

The PA Eco offers four specialization tracks:

market strategy, corporate finance, public policy, and Master in Economics (Research track).

All courses are taught in English.

1st semester (September – December)

 

The applied project ECO511 is a year-long supervised research effort by students designed to complement formal course work. The point of the project is for students to apply what they have learned in class to a real-world research problem. Topics can range in both subject matter and methodology (both empirical and applied theory are possible). Topics are proposed by supervisors at the beginning of the year in a catalogue. Students form groups of twos or threes and then submit ordered rankings of desired topics. Students are then matched to supervisors/topics and work begins. Supervisors should provide some guidance in terms of methodology and data, but students should retain the freedom to be creative in addressing the question. Students are required to submit a midterm report in December describing progress to date. A final written report is due in March, which the students then defend to the supervisor in an oral exam.
