Created in 1984, EPITA (School for Computer Science and Advanced Techniques) is an engineering school located in Île-de-France Region, specialized in Computer Science. The school offers various degree programs for international students, which can mingle with French students (of which I am a member) on the main campus located in Kremlin-Bicêtre, just a few minutes from Paris.
Main campus is made up of different buildings and many rooms with computers of last generations (Linux and macOS). Campus is shared with another school, Epitech, a computer school that offers IT degree. I invite you also to read Epitech’s presentation.
EPITA offers 4 degree programs for international students : a Bachelor of Computer Science (BCS), two Masters of Science (in Computer Science and AI Systems) and a Master of Computer Engineering. In addition to these courses, EPITA also offers boot camps and entrepreneurship short programs and joint & dual degrees.
A wide range of specialization
During your studies, you will be able to choose majors, such as Global IT Management, Software Development, Project management, Advanced Algorithms, IoT, Networks & Security and more. You will also attend general courses in the early years, such as algorithmic, linear algebra, thermodynamic physics, computer architecture and electronics.
EPITA is a school that allows everyone to discover computing through workshops and multiple projects. Every student can find or discover a new passion, whether it’s about security or project management.

A very active student life
The Student Life is very active in the main campus, with more than 70 clubs and organizations, like video games, programming, movies club and more. Only a few minutes from public transport, you can easily reach the center of Paris and nice places. Le + : The Val-de-Marne department offers a refund of part of your transport costs.
Finally, as a part of your final semester, you will have to do an internship. Paris and surrounding cities host many startups and large companies, like Apple, Google, Microsoft and Facebook. The French Tech is also a great way to discover new French startups with great potential, like in the incubator Station F, just ten minutes from the EPITA campus.
