A unique and active pedagogy that forges personalities

In Epitech we offer a learning experience of excellence for all. Our innovative project-based learning method is founded on active and inductive learning. Students must seek out knowledge actively, by trying different techniques to find the best solution. The classic “professor” as the intermediary between knowledge and the student is replaced by instructors who guide students in their learning.

In a reflection of a typical professional environment in the field, students are confronted with real-life situations for which they do not yet have the technical background allowing them to resolve the problem. They must then analyse the situation and research and acquire the knowledge and know-how necessary to resolve it on their own. Through these real-life situations, students are led to exchange, discuss, and challenge their opinions. These exchanges reveal paths, questions, and even new problems. Each student must seek, verify and test different elements in order to come up with the best solution.

In a nutshell, our teaching methods are designed to provide you with with both: high-level technical skills as well as essential soft skills. By the end of your program, you will have completed dozens of diverse projects using the latest technologies in the field of IT. Epitech’ learning methods will enable you to learn independently, understand business practices, work in teams, and become a good decision-maker.
