EPF has found a new home at the Alembert building, which until 2020 housed the ENS Paris-Saclay. This new site is located one RER station away from the old Sceaux campus.
This change is part of the school’s development strategy, which aims to improve study conditions for engineering students and offer them new opportunities in regard to technology and student life.
EPF Paris-Cachan: Campus of the future
The EPF Paris-Cachan campus has taken over from the historic site of Sceaux. Inaugurated in January 2022, it is located on a campus that brings together other schools in the area, in an ‘Alliance for Science and Technology’.
Situated in the iconic building of the École Normale Supérieure, it is designed to train engineers in large spaces where the most advanced technologies are combined with places of concentration and conviviality. It offers 16,000m² of ultra-modern facilities and cutting-edge innovation and research laboratories to support excellence in teaching and research.
Nestled in an eight-hectare woodland park classified as a ‘Protected Green Space’, and close to the city centre, the EPF Paris-Cachan campus is a place for sharing and designed to encourage interaction between students and the local residents. The promotion of its landscape heritage encourages activity on the site and has forged the new dynamics of this ecological campus.
By joining the EPF Paris-Cachan Campus, you will benefit from a very pleasant environment that combines green spaces and numerous facilities, making the school a friendly, inspiring, and safe place to study.
