École Polytechnique is at the top of the 2022 ranking of the 30 best French Engineering Schools by Le Figaro Etudiant, ahead of CentraleSupélec and Mines Paris, as in the previous two years.

These schools of excellence, selected by Le Figaro Étudiant, are the most sought-after by students in the most prestigious preparatory classes and by the best high-school students.

Among the other founding members of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, Télécom Paris comes 5th in the third edition of this ranking, as it was last year, while ENSTA Paris ranks 7th and ENSAE Paris 9th. Télécom SudParis has moved up to 23rd place in the ranking of the best Engineering Schools, which has been expanded from 21 to 30 Schools. 

The Institut Polytechnique de Paris is a public institution of higher education and research that brings together five major French Engineering Schools: École Polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, IP Paris, Télécom Paris and Télécom SudParis.

Le Figaro gathered information on 164 Engineering Schools, giving equal weight to academic excellence (research, double degrees, level of graduates, etc.), international influence (international rankings, expatriation, percentage of graduates working abroad, etc.) and relations with companies (salaries, alumni networks, etc).
