The École Pour l'Informatique et les Techniques Avancées (the "Graduate School of Computer Science and Advanced Technologies"), more commonly known as EPITA is a French education institution specialized in the field of computer science and software engineering[1] · .[2] It is a private engineering school, member of IONIS Education Group,[3] accredited by the Commission des titres d'ingénieur and based at Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, south of Paris.[4] In June 2013, EPITA becomes member of the Union of Independent Grandes Écoles, which includes 30 grandes écoles.[5] The university will open a new campus abroad in 2014.[6]


Preparatory class[edit]

The first two years of studies are preparatory years. During these two years, students study mathematics, physics and electronics as well as algorithmics and computer science. [7]


The first year[edit]

The third year is the first year of engineering studies, where students learn the fundamentals in information technology and software engineering. This year is also famous for its first month, during which students will be asked to make several projects, which generally lead them to code more than 15 hours per day. The third year students are used to say that "sleeping is cheating" and usually remember this year as their most painstaking year at EPITA.


During the fourth and fifth years students have to choose one of the eight majors:
