Graduate of l'X
The query service of the list of graduates of École polytechnique was designed to verify that a person is indeed a graduate of the École polytechnique.
The service reliability is guaranteed by a robust technological design. We encourage you however to read the use cases for this query service and their meaning. Apart from these use cases, the engine response may be meaningless.
Finally, the query service of the list of graduates of École polytechnique is an information service. The use made of this information does not engage the responsibility of École polytechnique.
The query service currently replies to requests containing the first name, the last name and :
- the promotion (>= X1960) for the degree of École Polytechnique engineering cycle,
- the year of graduation (from 1985 to 2015) and the specialty for the Ph. D. of the École polytechnique,
- the year of graduation (>= 2016) and the specialty for the Ph. D. of the University Paris-Saclay prepared in one of École Polytechnique's laboratories,
- the year of graduation (>= 2018) for the Master of Science and Technology,
- the Intake (promotion) (>= 2017) for the Executive Master,
- the year of graduation (>= 2019) and the specialty for the Ph. D. of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris prepared in one of École Polytechnique's laboratories,
- the year of graduation (>= 2020) and their double major for the Bachelor of Science.
Use case: how to query the list of graduates of École polytechnique ?
The search engine needs you to spell correctly the first and last name; a deviation of 3 characters is allowed, not more. The accents are optional. Uppercase and lowercase are not significant.
The first and last names are spelled in priority as listed in the Official Journal (polytechnician cycle) and as they are spelled in the diploma in other cases. A composed first name should be written integrally and with the hyphen.
A student may have received a part of a cursus at École Polytechnique under the responsibility of another institution. In this case, this student is not in the list of graduates of École Polytechnique.
For a polytechnician (engineering cycle) the "promotion" is the year of the beginning of schooling, not the year of graduation. For example, the promotion X1989 entered l'X in August 1989 and graduated in August 1992. Since the promotion X1999, a student of engineering cycle successively obtained two degrees: an engineering degree from École polytechnique after the confirmation of the first 3 years of studies and then the degree of École polytechnique after the validation of the 4th year.
The career of the Ph. D. of École polytechnique before their thesis is varied, some are polytechnician (engineering cycle),
many come from all the horizons and all originate from their sector of excellence.
Many polytechnicians (engineering cycle) are also PhDs. But among the polytechnicians, only those who were enrolled in the graduate school of École polytechnique appear in this database.
Master of Science and Technology
For a graduate of Master of Science and Technology, the year of promotion is the year of completion of schooling; in other words, the year of graduation. For example, a graduate of the 2018 class has been graduated in September 2018 and has started his training in September 2016 (or in 2017 in some cases).
For a graduate of the Executive Master, the Intake (promotion) is the year of when schooling started, not the year of graduation. For example, a graduate of the 2017 Intake started classes in September 2017 and graduated in October 2018.
Bachelor of Science
For a graduate of the Bachelor of Science, the "promotion" is the year of graduation.
