Program Description

PEIP Program

The PEIP is a UPMC preparatory course reserved for high school science graduates.

The general objectives common to the “Polytech Engineering Schools Programs” network are the following:

  • national recruitment for a national network
  • classes in a bachelor’s program associating basic science, technology, and general training
  • specific classes and individual tutoring for engineering students
  • contact with the industrial sector: business knowledge, participation from industrial sector professionals, internships in France and abroad, etc.

The PEIP is also open to non-French speaking students from foreign schools and universities, with admission based on a written application and an interview in their native language. In these cases, the first year content of the PEIP will be spread over two years and combined with adapted French classes.

Opportunities


At the end of these 2 years, students who successfully complete their PEIP have direct access to, and priority for, a school in the Polytech network.

Placement in one of the schools depends on the student's preference, specializations offered and places available.

Length of studies: 5 years for the engineering diploma, two of which are spent in the PEIP.

And nine hundred years later, UPMC continues the quest for knowledge of the highest order in the heart of Paris.
