At ENSIIE, the general computer engineer training aims to develop the students’ potential, their autonomy and their initiative. This training answers the double demand of :

  • remaining relevant to all sectors and all careers ;
  • being a key player at the heart of contemporary issues.


ENSIIE is very well recognised by businesses, with over 40 years of experience and almost 3,000 graduates. An ENSIIE engineer can integrate equally effectively into the industrial, financial or tertiary sectors, which are the primary fields of recruitment.

ENSIIE is also one of the top engineering schools in the league tables, with graduates amongst the best-paid and almost 100% employment three months after graduation :

  • 39the of 153 schools,
    ranking Le Nouvel Observateur, Palmarès des Grandes Écoles 2012 ;
  • ranked 3rde out of all engineering schools,
    ranking SMBG, Les meilleures Grandes Écoles 2012 ;
  • one of the highest satisfaction rates among the engineering schools in Europe,,
    one of the shortest delays in finding a first job, and among the best-paid, Baromètre Européen Trendence des écoles d’ingénieurs 2011..


First year admission is based on either theConcours Centrale-Supelec, theConcours Commun Polytechniques or on Qualifications for DUT and BTS degree holders or equivalent qualification.
Second year admission is only based on Qualifications for Master 1 degree holders or equivalent qualification.
