1st place post-baccalaureate engineering school in Sciences et Avenir magazine

Logo Sciences et AvenirIn its 840th issue, published in February 2017 and honoring renowned mathematician Cedric Villani—who recently gave a lecture on the birth of ideas at EPITA—the magazine Sciences et Avenir emphasized EPITA’s outstanding qualities, based on the school’s ranking in Challenges magazine’s list of top engineering school (issue 502).

 

EPITA ranked among the top 10 engineering schools whose students command the highest salaries after graduation, by Les Echos Start

Logo Les Echos - Start

The website Les Echos Start, a website run by the daily financial newspaper Les Echos and aimed at young people, published an article in February, focusing on the salaries of young engineering graduates.

Not surprisingly, EPITA—the school for IT intelligence engineers—was among the top-ranked schools, earning ninth place on the list of “Top 20 engineering schools with the best salaries for graduates.”

EPITA, the IT intelligence school, ranked among the seven schools that are most in demand by Information Technology Consulting firms

Logo Journal Du Net

In February, the Journal du Net released an article on training programs (schools and universities) with the highest employment rates for new graduates from the previous year.

Le Journal du Net asked the 12 largest French Information Technology Consulting firms, which hired more than 20,000 employees last year, which schools or universities had the highest employment rates for new graduates.

Renowned expertise in Cybersecurity and Big Data

EPITA stands out in this ranking among the seven schools that are most in demand by Information Technology Consulting firms once again. It confirms the ability of EPITA’s graduates to excel in cybercity and Big Data issues, among other things.
