Étudiant 2018 engineering school rankings: EPITA is still at the top of the list!
Each year, Étudiant unveils a new list of the best engineering schools in France by asking high school students to draw up their own rankings based on a selection of criteria that they consider important.
If you are in your final year of high school, specializing in math and science (scientific baccalaureate students) and would like to apply to a major digital engineering school with the goal of working in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and earning a top-level salary after graduating, with the possibility of immediately finding a position abroad and joining a major network of connected Alumni, EPITA is your school!
Indeed, based on these 6 criteria, Étudiant 2018 ranked EPITA number one in French engineering schools!
