Born in 1984, EPITA (from the French Ecole pour l'Informatique et les Techniques Avancées : School of Computer Science & Advanced Techniques) has been steadily gaining a reputation of excellence among multinational companies, which often recruit our students before the end of their studies.
Born with the expansion of new technologies, EPITA has kept pace with their evolution. The courses, though very technical at the beginning, have opened up a great deal even as the technical complexity has increased. EPITA took the opposite approach of the one adopted by most other engineering schools: whereas the latter allowed computer science in to try to give it a place, EPITA brought in the other sciences to join information technology and yet without losing any of its main competences that constitute its strength and identity.
In permanent contact with the business world, EPITA also shares its values: pragmatism, responsible risk-taking, and innovative spirit.
Allowing students to work in optimal conditions is EPITA's first concern. Faculty, administrative staff, technical resources and research facilities are all directed towards the success of EPITA students who are to become the best recognized professionals in their field of expertise.EPITA provides opportunities to be intimately involved in cutting-edge research with an intellectually diverse faculty capable of not only individual academic excellence but that can also create and apply knowledge as part of an interdisciplinary research team.
As one of France's leading science and engineering schools, EPITA is committed to ensuring that all students have meaningful opportunities for personal growth and professional achievement in the future.
Built around the real needs of the business world, the EPITA curriculum is designed to meet its expectations.
Being so involved in the teaching content and process, companies logically offer among the highest salaries upon graduation and year after year, they ranked the school among the very best.
An international package is also offered, which includes:
Finding a suitable accommodation can be challenging, but at EPITA we make it as easy as possible for you to find the home that will suit you best during your stay in Paris.The international department at EPITA offers accommodation services to all international students enrolled in their bachelor or master programs before their arrival in France. Once the first installment of tuition fees is paid, the student will have access to the EPITA international students’ accommodation portal. Then he/she can choose and reserve their accommodation even before arriving in Paris.
The Internet connection at the school runs at 1 Gbps (optical fiber), permitting 2,500 work stations to work simultaneously. All facilities are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The whole campus is WI-FI connected, enabling students to use mobile devices anywhere. In addition, Voice over IP (VoIP) is possible throughout the network.
In Paris and other major cities in France, EPITA strives to ensure a high quality educational experience that is particularly well-adapted to the demands of the digital world.
Since September 2017, the EPITA integrated preparatory cycle is offered in 4 new French cities in addition to Paris. Lyon, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse have opened their doors to the school’s future engineers for an unforgettable academic adventure identical to that in Paris. All the courses offered are in French and these new regional campuses will allow more students to enjoy the EPITA experience, giving them the chance to realize their most ambitious dreams.
EPITA encourages students to actively participate in one of its 40 clubs and associations, offering a unique opportunity to foster leadership development, complement the educational experience and build community.
The French State organisation called CTI (Commission des Titres d’Ingenieurs) has renewed its trust in EPITA by extending its accreditation to deliver EPITA’s Computer Science Engineering Graduate Degree (recognized as a Master’s Degree) for a maximum possible duration, i.e. 3 years, for repositioning on the periodic accreditation of Paris region.This institutional recognition of the quality of training provided by EPITA, combined with ongoing support from thousands of companies that offer internships and jobs to our students each year, rewards the investment of teachers, researchers as well as the administrative staff of the school.
