The first engineering school in central Paris.

Both a member of the Polytech Network and an integral part of the premier science and medicine university in France, Polytech’Paris-UPMC trains 800 high-level engineers (in 3 or 5 years) in close collaboration with industry. Multidisciplinary, it offers seven specialities rooted in the most innovative sciences and technologies.

It awards the title of engineering graduate in seven specialities:
- with student status in agriculture and food, electronics and informatics, materials, robotics, Earth sciences;
- with apprentice status in industrial electronics and informatics, and in mechanical engineering, in partnership with the Industrial Engineer Techniques Institute, Ile-de-France.

On the strength of its close alignment with the demands of industry, the school trains one third of the trainee-engineers in the Ile-de-France region. Truly unique in France, 33% of the Polytech’Paris UPMC intake corresponds to trainees, whereas nationally only 3-5% of student engineers are trainees.

The school distinguishes itself particularly on the grounds of its rates and level of professional integration: 90% of engineers are recruited within 6 months (including 45% before the end of their course) and the average starting salary is €31k.

Open to individuals from all backgrounds, traditional student specialisations admit athletes and high-level artists and disabled students, for whom Polytech’Paris-UPMC offers courses that are adapted to the goals and abilities of each. The school has a commitment to diversity that makes a major contribution to its reputation.

Polytech’ Paris-UPMC students, deeply involved in student life, regularly distinguish themselves in the current science panorama and illustrious members of the school, high-level athletes such as Brice Guyart and Ulrich Robeiri, have worn the UPMC colours in major sporting competitions.
