The École des ingénieurs de la ville de Paris or "the School of Engineering of the City of Paris" is the only French « Grande Ecole d'Ingenieurs», with an emphasis on urban engineering. Supported by the City of Paris, this higher education school is a member of the PRES Paris-Est, along with the Ecole des Ponts.
The top-level graduate school, which is already actively involved in networks bringing together distinguished schools of higher education, has taken another step by partnering with Ecole des Ponts ParisTech.
Established in 1959 to educate the junior civil servants for the City of Paris, the EIVP nowadays also educates young professionals for the private sector. They have to deal with the educational disciplines linked to cities: building, urbanism, transportation, environment. Foreign students are welcomed to train for a one or two year curriculum (via ERASMUS or n+i), or for internships.
The students are recruited through a competitive exam after 2 to 3 years of high education (equivalent of college), usually in preparatory classes to elite schools ("classes préparatoires"). Laureates acquire a status of trainee civil servant, and receive a salary during 3 years.
EIVP students are selected through an exacting, highly competitive process and are particularly well trained: promotions are made of 80 students per year.
A new campus has opened during fall 2012 at 80 rue Rebeval, Paris, in the former building of the Ecole d'Architecture Paris-Belleville.
EIVP students participate each year in ATHENS Programme.
