The Polytech Group of Graduate Schools of Engineering

The Polytech Group is the consortium of Schools of Engineering of the French Universities.

They deliver a French Government-accredited, 5-year degree (equivalent to a Master of Science) in 12 fields of Engineering over 100 majors, and are affiliated with more than 160 scientific research laboratories.

Every year, 4,000 Polytech Engineers graduate from our schools and go on to work for large companies and startups alike (including companies of the world-famous French Tech). They are project-trained, science-driven, and PhD-ready. And most importantly, they are ready to engineer systems for a better world.

The Polytech Foundation

A French nonprofit organization acting on behalf of the Polytech Group, the Polytech Foundation works for the advancement of the Polytech Educational Community in innovative and societally-beneficial ways in France and abroad.

To carry out that mission, it builds partnerships with national and international organizations, and supports various programs to promote the Polytech values of rigorous scientific education, as well as ethical responsibility and sustainability (as defined by the UN Sustainability Goals).
