Presentation of EPITA
Founded in 1984, EPITA is a bilingual Graduate School of Computer Science. Thanks to its unique pedagogical approach, EPITA trains its students to become outstanding engineers who boast a solid base of scientific knowledge and the most advanced skills in the digital sector. EPITA also welcomes a wide range of foreign students thanks to its numerous international programs: bachelor, master of engineering, summer schools and French language courses.
EPITA is ranked among the top computer engineering schools in France.
As one of the leading French science and engineering schools, EPITA is committed to ensuring that all students have meaningful opportunities for personal growth and professional achievement in the future.
At EPITA, computing and information technologies are considered fundamental subjects and are always placed in the context of students’ future managerial roles and positions of responsibility. Business studies complement this training to broaden and complete the scientific culture vital to future engineers.
A word from the Managing Director
Today’s revolution, driven by information technology and telecommunications, will have as much impact on humanity as prehistoric men evolving from hunters and gatherers to breeders and farmers, as the emergence of writing to the creation of printers, and as society’s entrance into the industrial age!
Builders of this new world, digital engineers have the difficult task of showing constant innovation, as well as the fantastic power of imagining a new and better society in the delicate era of globalization, in which we are confronted with an increase of new risks.
Incredibly powerful, digital tools could be a driving force for immense progress or even bring a rise in new threats…The definition of computational intelligence extends far beyond science and technology.
The academic program for future digital engineers should therefore heavily focus on science and technology, and must rapidly include core values such as environmental, societal, entrepreneurial, ethic and human responsibility.
EPITA’s mission is to train the digital engineers of today and tomorrow.
The men and women who will work with the new Internet of things data, guide the creation of artificial intelligence, oversee new mobilities and permanently help protect cyberspace must be complementary in their shared vision of the future.
Dr Joël Courtois – Managing Director.
