About Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program, Other UG Award - at École Polytechnique

École Polytechnique's Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program is a unique four-year degree. Students spend the first three years studying for a Master of Engineering, Science and Technology, and at the end of their fourth year, receive their official Diploma of École Polytechnique.

École Polytechnique ensures that students graduate with both an excellent scientific education and a strong multidisciplinary background. The curriculum focuses mainly on science, with classes in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Computer Science, Mechanics, but also includes a variety of other subjects like Foreign Languages, Sports, Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts and Literature.

Aside from a very demanding scientific curriculum, the Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program sets itself apart from other top master’s degrees in science and technology by its well-rounded education, including:

  • Multidisciplinary scientific training providing students with a broad scientific base (basic sciences, engineering sciences, social sciences, economics, etc.)
  • Human, military and sports training, allowing students to develop their behavioral and relational skills as well as humanities, languages and culture-oriented teaching
  • Specialized courses offering advanced expertise in Science, Technology and Engineering
  • Fluency in French, through intensive French language and culture lessons

This Master’s degree is the only one in which students can easily change their major and choose a specialization that is different from their undergraduate studies.

Students are pushed out of their comfort zone to try new subjects and discover new areas of science. Each year, students must choose very different scientific courses to help them make an educated decision when it is time to choose their own field and specialization.

Students are confronted with different ways of thinking and of approaching science through a variety of different courses (i.e. mandatory Quantum Mechanics and Neuro Science classes).

Mandatory soft skills and humanities courses are put at the forefront. Not only do our students take outstanding science classes, they are also able to benefit from many humanities and soft skills-based classes, to enrich their studies and enable them to gain valuable life and managerial skills.

With very different Master’s specializations available, our graduates have a wide array of top-level career options available both in the public and the private sector. One out of three students in the program continue with a PhD.
