Innovating in a digital world


Telecom Paris, the leading French engineering Grande École in the area of information technology, now trains its graduates in innovation and entrepreneurship in a now digital world. This is incorporated in all business areas.

A pioneer since its foundation in 1878, Telecom Paris invented the word telecommunications and is continuously innovating, designing a high-level à la carte education:

  • implementation of project-based teaching in relation to research and entrepreneurship
  • development of an effective incubator which became the ParisTech incubator

Its excellent teaching and research cover all the disciplines of information and communication science and technology:  from component physics to the social sciences, and from networks to the processing of multi-media data.  

Rated A+ by HCERES (Evaluation Agency for Research and Higher Education), Telecom Paris' research has a remarkable profile on the European scientific stage.
