ESIEE Paris - Gustave Eiffel University


ESIEE Paris is located in the eastern part of Greater Paris. Only 20 minutes from the center of Paris, on the regional-express network. Its futuristic building is located in the heart of the Descartes Campus, a stimulating study environment, headquarters of the new Gustave Eiffel University.

Created in 1904 under the name of Ecole Breguet, ESIEE Paris has immediately distinguished itself as an engineering school focused on innovation and entrepreneurship. One of its most renowned former students is Marcel Dassault, founder of one of the very first industrial groups, the Dassault Aviation group.

A more recent graduate, Yann LeCun, is behind the current artificial intelligence revolution. He invented the profound learning process and both founded and directed the Facebook laboratory for artificial intelligence. ESIEE Paris was also recognized as the first engineering school from which French entrepreneurs graduated at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

ESIEE Paris was recognised as the leading engineering school for French entrepreneurs at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the world's biggest trade fair for technological innovation in consumer electronics.

ESIEE Paris is a CCI Paris Île-de-France, school and has naturally developed strong connections with the most dynamic companies in terms of engineer recruitment. These ties contribute to one of the school's biggest achievements: almost 100 % of ESIEE graduates are employed within 6 months of graduating.
