École Polytechnique is located at the heart of Université Paris-Saclay, ranked among the top eight competitiveness clusters in the world by the MIT Technology Review. With over 60,000 students and 10,500 scientists and professors, this cluster generates fifteen percent of French industrial R&D and provides 35,000 jobs in the advanced technology sector.
Major groups such as Danone, Thales, Horiba and EDF have already established their research centers alongside École Polytechnique. Safran, Zodiac, PSA, Kraft Food, EADS and Air Liquide are also present on the Paris-Saclay campus alongside innovative SMEs and mid-market companies such as Carmat, Quantel, Leosphere and V-Motech.
Being at the heart of this vibrant scientific community and taking advantage of its network is also part of the experience given to all of our students.
