The academic courses are developed and delivered by world-class faculty from Ecole Polytechnique, associated Research Centers, national and international academic partners as well as by top-level industry professionals, ensuring a depth of pertinent theoretical and practical content.
The Graduate degree programs also include company visits and conferences held by business leading figures.
