Ecole Polytechnique

The Ecole Polytechnique is a leading French "Grande Ecole" which emphasizes on multidiciplinarity grounded in a strong mathematical background. I have basis in economics, computer science and applied mathematics. I have also attended philosophy courses.

I have chosen mathematics and biology courses but I have decided to specialise in physics (its most powerful theories like quantum mechanics or relativity as well as its applied aspects such as mechanical engeneering).

Internship at "Une Grande Ecole, Pourquoi pas Moi ?"

Our first year at the Ecole Polytechnique is almost entirely devoted to our "formation humaine" (human formation). The point is to make a pause in our scientific studies and make an internship in an association in order to broaden our horizons and open our minds.

I have worked in "Une Grande Ecole Pourquoi pas Moi ? ". This association aims at helping high school students from disadvantaged neibouhoods to succeed in their studies.
