One of the top Grandes Écoles in France for engineering, TELECOM ParisTech was founded in 1878. 1,400 students are currently enrolled at the institution, with teaching split across two campuses. The first, in Paris, is where the university was first established, while the second in Sophia-Antipolis near Nice was opened in 1991.
TELECOM ParisTech is one of the approved application schools for the École Polytechnique, which allows fourth-years to complete their studies by taking a one-year specialized study program at the institution.
30-35 percent of the institution’s graduates are international students.
