Build the worlds of tomorrow
Since 1747, École des Ponts ParisTech has been training engineers, future leaders and researchers capable of tackling global challenges and transforming society. École des Ponts ParisTech has developed education programs and excellent research dedicated to the ecological transition.
École des Ponts ParisTech is listed in the best national and international rankings, in which it progresses each year, and has an undisputed national and international reputation.
It trains high-level engineers and future leaders with a scientific and technical profile, who will be called upon to tackle the major challenges the society is facing today and in the future, particularly in the area of ecological transition.
The quality of its multidisciplinary teaching with innovative pedagogies is based on the excellence of its research, its close links with businesses and its partnerships with the world's leading academic institutions.
While civil engineering, environmental engineering and mechanical engineering have historically made up its prestige, the École des Ponts ParisTech today offers excellent courses in varied fields: mathematics, industrial engineering, transportation, economics and finance, mechanics and materials science, cities, energy, etc.
Companies recognize that engineers graduated from École des Ponts ParisTech have both a high scientific level and a sense of concreteness thanks to a teaching balanced between theory and practice. Throughout the training, emphasis is placed on 4 dimensions:
École des Ponts ParisTech is a generalist school open to several core businesses. It provides its students with strong scientific and technical knowledge and skills in its fields of excellence, including civil engineering, industrial engineering, applied mathematics, mechanics, materials and economics. The program makes the students capable of understanding and master conceptual, mathematical and numerical modeling approaches, while providing them with the means to criticize them and take a step back: this is one of the pillars of the profession of engineer, researcher or manager.
In addition, the School emphasizes the development of managerial, human and social, cultural and linguistic skills. Engineering training thus aims to put the student in a position to apprehend complex problems.
The School offers a wide range of excellent training courses.
École des Ponts ParisTech works to develop research and doctoral studies. Its research activity represents an essential factor of influence and innovation thanks to its 12 excellent laboratories (including 6 labs in partnership with CNRS ) which are internationally recognized.
The research teams develop their research in the fields of applied mathematics, mechanics and materials science, environmental sciences, economics and social sciences.
The research strategy that is developed by the labs coordinated by the Research Department, aims to federate all forces and to mobilize interdsciplinary expertise on four socio-economic key challenges.
Morevoer, since academic year 2020/2021, the School once again issues its own PhD degree. It has put in place a personalized support system aimed at providing each PhD candidate with all the necessary assets to build his or her skills portfolio with regard to his or her post-doctoral professional project.
Under the supervision of the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, the ecological transition is at the heart of the École des Ponts ParisTech project.
The School works closely with students and all staff to listen to their requests, explain its approach and work with them to develop these issues. They are therefore also solicited on these issues at several levels, such as the School's governance bodies, within working groups, as part of a call for national projects, as part of a project to decarbonize the School's buildings, with the Climate Fresk, or even a training course on "climate change: understanding in order to act" open to all the School's staff...
The School has also signed the Grenoble Agreement, which is a pledge by the institution to accelerate its actions and take concrete steps within the campus and its organization...
Furthermore, respect for each individual is at the heart of the School's concerns, whether they be students or staff. It is manifested through two major themes: the implementation of real and measurable gender equality, and the fight against sexist and sexual violence and all forms of discrimination.
