Masters & PhD Tracks

In addition to the excellent multidisciplinary education that constitutes the engineering course, ENSTA Paris offers more academic and disciplinary courses, geared towards research and preparation for a Doctorate. These courses are operated jointly with partner Schools within the Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris).

The Masters programs

A 2-year track, allowing students to gain more in-depth knowledge about one of the offered disciplines, with a research perspective. Engineering students of ENSTA Paris have the possibility of entering directly into the second year of the Masters.

The PhD Track

Selective and individualised tracks lasting for 5 years allow students to build a personalised track oriented towards the thesis subject from the start of their Masters, under the supervision of a mentor and immersed in cutting-edge research laboratories. Engineering students of ENSTA Paris have the possibility of entering directly into the second year of the PhD Track.

Set up within the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, these programmes are run jointly by the École polytechnique, ENSTA Paris, ENSAE Paris, Télécom Paris, Télécom SudParis and other partner establishments such as HEC Paris, CentraleSupélec or the University of Paris-Saclay. More than 70 Masters and PhD tracks are offered in many fields: Biology, Physics, Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, Energy, Economics, Computer Science, Sociology, etc. You can find the details of the courses (educational goals, laboratories and associated partners) and all the information relating to admissions on the dedicated presentation pages.

The Masters offer in which ENSTA Paris is involved concerns the following disciplines: Chemistry, Energy, Nuclear Engineering, Computer Science, Information and Communications Engineering, Innovation, Business and Society, Mathematics and Applications, Mechanics, Physics.

Double schooling

The engineering students of ENSTA Paris undergo their dual schooling in parallel with the last year of education in the engineering course.


The engineering students can apply directly to the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. The list of academic and linguistic prerequisites is available on each of the Masters presentation pages.
