EPF Graduate School of Engineering

EPF has a rich history that all our students, and our 9 500 alumni, identify with. The school's pioneering spirit and the challenges it has lived up to since 1925 are part of its DNA, as are its commitment to societal responsibility and sustainable development. 

Master's Programmes



EPF, former Ecole Polytechnique Féminine (Polytechnic School for Women), was founded in 1925, as one of France's first Grandes Ecoles to train women to be engineers. 


EPF trains well-rounded generalist engineers in a 5-year programme. On top of this title, which is mentioned on our CTI-authorized diplomas, our graduates are capable of adapting to business and technological changes and to their future employers' strategies. Our generalist engineers learn to master a wide spectrum of skills so that they can manage complex projects and oversee fundamental developments.


The EPF research policy is designed to foster a true “research culture” at the heart of its teaching model. It is also designed to provide students with new career opportunities.

For students, EPF research offers:

  • A training approach through research,
  • An opening towards research and innovation,
  • A preparation for the engineering career (lab discovery...)
  • A talented developer.


Last year, 95% of our graduates found a job within less than 4 months. Their average gross annual starting salary was €37,000, rising to €45,000 after 3 years of experience. These remarkable figures rank EPF among the best engineering schools in terms of salary, demonstrating its generalist engineers' potential for growth.

Student services

  • EPF's International Department organises an orientation session for new international students before the start of the academic year (last week of August).
  • During this 2-day session, we give you a presentation of EPF and how it is organised (courses, exams, rules, etc.) and help you take care of administrative matters (insurance, residence permit, etc.).
  • Advisors will be on hand to help you put together a course schedule.

Housing services

It is very difficult for foreign students to find housing near Sceaux or in Paris. To offset this, EPF has signed an agreement with CROUS, which manages university residences, to find housing for international students spending one year in France.

Student Life

Campus life

EPF's students have the choice between 3 beautiful campuses in Sceaux (close to Paris), Montpellier (south of France) and Troyes (East of France), where they can fully enjoy their student years. They have several housing options available: university residences or student housing, rented rooms, individual studios or apartments near the school.

Student clubs

EPF has more than 50 student organisations in a variety of fields (humanitarian, international, sports, technology...). Students take an active part in EPF's organisations, including sports groups, recreational or cultural activities, events and excursions, and humanitarian or volunteer work.


EPF's diplomas are accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the “Commission des Titres d'Ingénieurs”. EPF is a member of both the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles” (CGE) and the “Union des Grandes Ecoles Indépendantes” (UGEI).

The university could not have provided me with a better experience of university life. The staff and students are all friendly, the course is brilliant, the social life is great and the campus provides a safe and friendly environment to live in!
