Testimony

Juanitah Precious NTAMBI - Uganda - Class of 2018

"I arrived in France to pursue a Masters degree September 2016. I chose EPITA due to its challenging academic environment and its multinational community. As an international Masters student with an engineering background. I had access to a multitude of interesting courses, which have challenged me to pursue, in depth, different topics especially Finance and Marketing which would be a rare thing in an Engineering School!

EPITA tutors are professionals from the real working world and we have access to information that is up to date and is practical in the real world. Personally, the career opportunities of the students from EPITA are a great indicator of a program preparation for its students."
