Program Overview

The Internship Program for International Students gives undergraduate and graduate students coming from international partner universities of l’Ecole Polytechnique the opportunity to complete a 3- to 6-month internship at one laboratory of its research center.

Each year in October, the International Affairs Office sends a call for applications to the laboratories of Ecole Polytechnique and, at the end of November at the latest, the internship subjects are listed below. To find out more on the selection process.

Located in the heart of the Saclay research cluster, the l'X laboratories offer the chance to work on cutting-edge research topics in a highly internationalized environment.

With 23 research facilities devoted to 8 major specialized or transverse fields, 600 researchers and a €95-million research budget, l'X is ranked 66th in the world for the scientific impact of its publications and for the number of articles co-authored with international institutions (Leiden ranking).
