The international dimension has long been at the heart of the strategy of the École Polytechnique, which has a large network of partner universities throughout the world.
In its mission of higher education, research and the dissemination of scientific knowledge, l’X is working to build on the many relationships it has developed over the years with universities of great renown and to ensure that the originality and quality of its training and research are recognised at the highest international level.
Its international outlook is reflected in several key areas:
>The training of international students in the Ingénieur Polytechnicien program
>The increase in the number of French Polytechnician students training abroad
>Diversification of training offers within the framework of the Bologna Process
>Building strong partnerships
Every year, more than 100 international students are enrolled in the Ingénieur Polytechnicien program, many of them under double degree agreements signed with leading universities. The diversification of recruitment and the extension of double degree agreements is one of the School's objectives.
100% of l’X students will be required to undertake international mobility, either as a work or as a study placement. The School is therefore resolutely orienting its students towards the international scene.
École Polytechnique’s degree program now includes more than 30 master's specialities, in addition to the Ingénieur Polytechnicien program and the Doctoral program (more than 200 foreign doctoral students). Through this offer, the School aims to increase its international attractiveness and its ability to collaborate with foreign institutions, in particular to set up joint master's programs. In addition, non-degree exchange programs (studies and internships) welcome more than 80 foreign students each year (including Erasmus+ students).
L’X's stated policy of international development is focused on the establishment of strong partnerships in targeted countries corresponding to identified geographical and disciplinary priorities. École Polytechnique thus develops with its partners a global policy of international cooperation and exchanges aimed, on one hand, at establishing double degree programs for the training of the Ingénieur Polytechnicien program, joint programs for the Ingénieur Polytechnicien, bachelor, master or doctorate programs and, on the other hand, the development of close scientific collaborations.
