The Grande Ecole Program
“Epitech students who complete our five-year Grande École program are IT experts. They are self-starters who take responsibility for their work and fit seamlessly into the corporate world. Of course, our Grande École program graduates know how to develop and synthesize ideas and technologies; but they also know how to form top-notch teams for mission-critical projects. Today’s world is constantly changing; innovation is the word of the day. Epitech Grande École students have what it takes to succeed.”
Emmanuel Carli, CEO
The two-phase Grande École Program:
The Grande École program embodies Epitech’s longstanding tradition of excellence—molding students into experts in innovation, information technology, and communication technology. Students gain new perspectives and hone their ability to face new challenges by participating in management training and group work—which begins right at the start of the school year. A study abroad year gives our students an international perspective.
These experiences serve as the foundation for our Epitech Innovative Projects module, which culminates the five-year experience. To round out the Grande École program, students earn the Epitech Expert in Information Technologies credential, recognized as a level 1 credential by the French National Registry of Professional certifications (RNCP). Students also have the option to earn an MBA from the ISG, a Business School in Paris.
Our five-year Grande École program involves two phases:
Phase 1—Bachelor’s program—3 years:
- Introductory courses
- Building a knowledge base
- Mastering this knowledge
Phase 2—Advanced/Expert program—2 years:
- Study abroad (optional for international students)
- Expert-level work
