Its various undergraduate and graduate-level programs – Bachelor of Science, Ingénieur Polytechnicien (Master’s level program), Master’s, and PhD – are highly selective and promote a culture of excellence with a strong emphasis on science, anchored in humanist traditions. As a widely internationalized university, École polytechnique offers a variety of international programs and attracts a growing number of foreign students and researchers from around the globe (currently 40% of students and faculty members). École polytechnique offers an exceptional education to prepare bright men and women to excel in top-level key positions and lead complex and innovative projects which meet the challenges of 21st century society, all while maintaining a keen sense of their civil and social responsibilities. With its 23 laboratories, 22 of which are joint research units with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the École polytechnique Research Center explores the frontiers of interdisciplinary knowledge to provide major contributions to science, technology, and society. École polytechnique is a founding member of Institut Polytechnique de Paris. hResearch at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris is built on the recognized expertise of its Schools in ten major disciplines: Biology; Chemistry and Processes; Economics; Information, Communications and Electronics; Computer Science, Data, and AI; Mathematics; Mechanics and Energetics; Physics; Humanities, Arts, Literature and Languages; Social Sciences and Management. The research programs established by the disciplinary departments identify key fields and develop transdisciplinary research projects in partnership with industry. Research focuses on 12 research areas: Environment & climate ; Energy transition ; Artificial Intelligence and Data science ; Networks and the Internet of Things ; Mathematics and digital simulation ; Cybersecurity ; Defense ; Geopolitics and strategy ; Innovative Materials and Quantum Technologies ; Lasers and plasma Science ; Robotics ; Bioengineering. To this end, the Institut Polytechnique de Paris has set up major interdisciplinary centers to take up the greatest economic and social challenges of our time.
