About Bachelor of Science at École Polytechnique

The Bachelor of Science is a highly selective three-year Program, taught entirely in English and tailored to academically inclined students with a very strong interest in mathematics and science.

Bachelor students at Ecole Polytechnique follow a intensive multidisciplinary scientific curriculum. In the first year of the program students spend their time and energy acquiring the intellectual tools and key knowledge which that will form a base the rest of their higher education. At the same time, they will have opportunity to discover and experience several disciplines to choose the one that they will later specialize in. During the second and third years of their education, students will choose to study one of the following three double majors:

  • Mathematics and Physics
  • Mathematics and Computer Science
  • Mathematics and Economics

In the third year, students have the option to study abroad for the fall semester at one of our partner universities,  such as the University of Toronto, UC Berkeley, EPFL, KAIST, King’s College London, or The University of Melbourne. In the spring, students have an eight-week research internship, at the end of which they must submit their Bachelor Thesis.

Mathematics at the center of the Program

The Mathematics courses given in École Polytechnique's Bachelor Program are designed to fit any subsequent specialization streams (Physics, Economics, Computer Science). A notable point is the attention given from the beginning of the course to applications across the spectrum of Mathematics (Numerical Simulation and Calculations, Randomness and Data, Arithmetic Related Cryptology etc.).
