About

Epitech has solidified its reputation as a leading educational institution transforming a passion for computer science into expertise, opening doors to high-potential employment opportunities comparable to those enjoyed by graduates from the elite French Universities, also known as the Grandes Ecoles (100% employment after graduation). Business demands functional education based on the innovative Epitech model, which is built upon three qualities that are increasingly required in the workplace: adaptability, self-development and a sense of project management.

Epitech prepares students for the ever-evolving professional environment through unique learning methods:

  • A modern model built on experience, oriented towards action and project development, enriching theory through practical application.
  • An active model, which turns a passive class participant into an active self-starter living in the passion-driven context which embraces innovation and initiative.
  • A unique model, which provides the new and essential elements of success: team-work, adaptation, global orientation, innovation, creativity, and above all a sense of personal investment.

Epitech is not only a curriculum in tune with the times and the information and communication technology sector. It is also an education that personally enriches students by building their character, opening them to change and to others. This permits immediate, yet sustainable, success.

Epitech offers a 2-year Master-level curriculum in English, open to international students.
