The prestigious institutions will welcome their first class of students in France in September 2024.

École Polytechnique, France’s leading engineering school, and Columbia University have announced the launch of the Global Dual Degree in Engineering, a joint bachelor’s and master’s degree. Welcoming its first class of students in September 2024, the new program offers students a unique opportunity to gain a global perspective on engineering education.

Taught entirely in English, the global double degree offers students the opportunity to study for three years at École Polytechnique in France and 18 months at Columbia University in the US, benefiting from the expertise and resources of both institutions. Graduates will develop groundbreaking new solutions in a range of areas, including sustainability, environmental protection, resource management and climate change. This academic experience not only provides a well-rounded education, but also broadens cultural horizons and prepares students for success in an increasingly interconnected world.

The École Polytechnique’s bachelor’s program allows students to tailor their academic career to their professional goals, with two majors: mathematics and economics, mathematics and computer science, or mathematics and physics. Columbia University offers a choice of nine master’s programs, depending on the major they chose for their bachelor’s degree.

The Student Progression Committee decides on admission to Columbia University’s master’s programs based on academic performance and project requirements.
