The ENSTA Paris, formerly known as the École nationale supérieure de techniques avancées is a prestigious French graduate school of engineering. Founded in 1741, it is the oldest "grande école" in France. It is located in Palaiseau in the south of Paris, on the Paris-Saclay campus, and is a constituent faculty of the Paris Institute of Technology. Every year some 180 engineers graduate from the school.
ENSTA affords its students a general training course in engineering with the aim of enabling them to design and produce complex systems while meeting strict economic constraints. To this end, the school provides high-level scientific and technological training.
