Our academic partners

d.school Paris is backed by a consortium consisting of École des Ponts ParisTech, ESIEE, Université de Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, École des Ingénieurs de la Ville de Paris, and École d’Architecture de la Ville et des Territoires. We admit students from these 5 partner situations for all our programs. Only the ME310 Design Innovation program is open to all students from any other institutions.

  • Ecole des Ponts ParisTech

    École des Ponts ParisTech is a French grande école (prestige university-level college with competitive entry) which educates high potential engineers and future executives with a scientific and technical profile, to take on the great societal challenges of today and tomorrow. Open to students and researchers of many nationalities, it is a human scale institution with a multicultural and multidisciplinary ambience.

    Since its establishment in 1747, the oldest of France’s engineering schools has always been at the forefront of innovation in the organisation and content of its programs.

  • ESIEE école supérieure d'ingénieurs en électronique et électrotechnique

    ESIEE Paris was established in 1904. Originally named École Breguet, the School immediately stood out as engineering school focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship. One of its most illustrious former students is Marcel Dassault, founder of one of France’s premier industrial groups, Dassault Aviation.

    Under its new name of École d’Ingénieurs de la Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de région Paris Ile-de-France, ESIEE Paris continued along the same track. In 2007, it was one of the founders – with École des Ponts, Université Paris-Est Marne la Vallée, Université Paris 12 Val de Marne and Laboratoire Centrale des Ponts et Chaussées – of “Université Paris-Est”, a public institution for scientific cooperation set up under France’s Research Compact

    This high-level scientific environment, with its focus on research and innovation and relations with the most dynamic companies in the recruitment of engineers, contributes to one of the major successes of ESIEE Paris:
    94% of its graduates find a job within six months of leaving the School.

  • ENSAVT école d'architecture de la ville et des territoires

    École d’architecture de la ville & des territoires at Marne-la-Vallée, founded in 1998, is one of France’s 20 higher national schools of architecture, higher education institutions under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture and Communication (Central Heritage Directorate/architecture department). Its pedagogical approach is based on a conception of architecture committed to the transformation of the city and the regions.

    The School is located in a building built by the architect Bernard Tschumi in 1999 on the Cité Descartes university campus, only about 20 minutes from Paris on the RER A regional railway network.

    The closeness and the links maintained with other higher education establishments on the campus (École des ponts, Institut français d’urbanisme, Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, etc.), generate a broad and interdisciplinary approach to knowledge based around overlapping themes. Since 2007, the School has been part of the Paris-Est Research and Higher Education Hub (PRES).
