Masters programs

The École des Ponts ParisTech Masters 2 programs round off the courses available within the engineering curriculum. The vocational or research Masters programs last between 12 and 18 months and follow on from a more general first-year Masters program (M1) or a recognized Bachelors degree.

École des Ponts ParisTech has formed two types of partnership to deliver a national Masters degree qualification (M2)


International Masters degrees are backed by the ParisTech engineering schools. They are essentially open to international students holding the equivalent of a four-year Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Engineering degree, awarded by an internationally recognized higher education establishment. The program lasts between 14 and 18 months.

The Masters degrees are 4-semester programs that correspond to level M1 after a Bachelors Degree and to level M2 after one year of M1. These Masters degrees can be completed in their own right or jointly accredited with Universities. Each Masters program offers several options for specialization, but at least one semester is common to all the Masters programs, generally at level M1. École des Ponts ParisTech is not necessarily involved in all the Masters options for which it is jointly accredited with Universities.
