École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, du bâtiment et de l'industrie (ESTP Paris), is a French engineering and research graduate school (Grande Ecole) in Paris, founded in 1891 by Léon Eyrolles and was officially recognized by the State in 1921. It is a general engineering school recognized for leading French higher education in the fields of construction and project management. ESTP Paris is one of the most prestigious engineering schools in France.

It has trained a total of 24,000 engineers and 7,000 construction site managers.

The institution offers courses in building engineering, civil engineering, topography, surveying, electrical engineering granting diplomas and degrees for two- and three-year courses. The college was partly located on Boulevard Saint-Germain, in quartier latin, but entirely moved to Cachan, in the southern suburbs of Paris.

The school has also educated since 1891 site managers in building and public works in an undergraduate program.

The college is open to English-speakers who want to study engineering in conjunction with French.

In 1999 the school formed a partnership with Arts et Métiers ParisTech to offer a double-degree program.
