At École polytechnique, the academic year ended in mid-July with the defences of master's theses of students from the graduating class, prepared during a one-semester laboratory internship. The topics of the theses covered many areas, experimental or theoretical, of high-energy physics. After this first research experience, the vast majority of students are starting a doctoral thesis this fall, often as a continuation of their master's internship.
