Thematic orientations and concentrations

The undergraduate programme of the department of Chemical engineering at École Polytechnique can be summarized in three words :

  • Pertinence
  • Polyvalence
  • Praiseworthiness

This 3P curriculum provides students with a solid job market-oriented training covering up-to-date and cutting-edge technologies in the field of chemical engineering. Students will thus possess all the technical bases required for solving real problems in the field of chemical transformation in addition to mastering fundamental and applied notions common to all engineering disciplines. This versatility provides our students with broad knowledge and know-how sought in many industrial sectors.

For example, the acquisition of scientific analytical skills by our students is favoured through fundamental training in Transport Phenomena and Thermodynamics. While managing the different aspects of process design, the student participates in the enhancement of their capacity to synthesize and integrate knowledge and know-how acquired through their training. Our compulsory courses in environmental issues and life cycle analysis position them at the fore front of process design and optimization in a sustainable development context.
