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.
