Histoire de l'EPF

A unique institution

Founded in 1925, as École Polytechnique Féminine, EPF was one of the first engineering schools in France to train women.

It has been co-educational since 1994. Since then and for more than 90 years, EPF - Graduate School of Engineering, Sceaux (in the southern suburbs of Paris), has been preparing its graduates for a changing and more and more globalized world. EPF has educated decision makers in a variety of disciplines in public and private sectors.

It offers a global, generalist, multidisciplinary and multilingual education. EPF graduates not only possess excellent professional skills sought by leading enterprises and recruiters, but, our students benefit from a truly international environment.

Focused on academic excellence, professional training and innovative teaching methods, EPF also plays a pioneering role in the promotion of diversity and equal opportunity in higher education.
