About Bachelor of Science at École Polytechnique

The Bachelor of Science is a three-year program designed for students with a strong interest in Mathematics and Science. This highly selective and multidisciplinary program is taught entirely in English.

The Bachelor of Science is an intense program leading to a double major that allows students to develop strong knowledge and skills in either discipline.

Our students benefit from an exceptional learning environment in which they have access to cutting-edge facilities located in École Polytechnique’s Research Centers.

For three years, our students follow a demanding multidisciplinary scientific curriculum.

The first year is dedicated to acquiring the intellectual tools and fundamental knowledge which will be essential for the rest of their higher education.  It is a year when they discover and experience several disciplines in order to better choose their specialization.

As of the second and third years, students work towards one of 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.).
