Education

The École Polytechnique (commonly known as Polytechnique or by the nickname X) is a French public institution of higher education and research, located in Palaiseau near Paris. Polytechnique is considered to be the most selective and prestigious of the French Grandes écoles,[2][3] and is renowned for its four-year[4] undergraduate-postgraduate « Ingénieur Polytechnicien » degree in science and engineering.[5] Known for its extremely competitive entrance examination, students are usually admitted after two years of highly selective university-level preparation in mathematics and physics. In addition to the 2,000 polytechnic engineer students, the institution welcomes about 439 master students and 572 doctoral students, for a total enrollment of 2,900.[1] Polytechnique was established in 1794 by the mathematician Gaspard Monge during the French Revolution,[6] and became a military academy under Napoleon I in 1804. Today, the institution still runs under the supervision of the French ministry of Defence. Initially located in the Latin Quarter of central Paris, the establishment was moved in 1976 to Palaiseau on the Saclay Plateau, southwest of Paris.[7] Polytechnique is a founding member of ParisTech, a grouping of leading Paris-area engineering colleges established in 2007. It joins in 2014 as a founding member and as the head of pluridisciplinary technology and innovation institute the confederal "University of Paris in Saclay". Since 1995, Polytechnique has admitted a significant number of international applicants to its polytechnic engineer program,[8][9] and 20% of each cohort are foreign students.[10] Polytechnique is ranked among the best universities in the world. Among its alumni are two Nobel Prize winners, one Fields Medalist, three Presidents of France and many CEOs of French and international companies. It could be seen as France's MIT for its leading role in the formation of technology innovators and company leaders.

Eurotunnel Group, a company listed on the stock exchanges in Paris and London, brings together a group of companies active in the fields of infrastructure management and transport operations. Its various entities share the same attention to quality and customer service, with priority given to safety, a taste for innovation, a sense of social responsibility and commitment to sustainable development. All the Group's investments are intended to generate growth and value. In 2012, Eurotunnel Group generated revenues of almost €1 billion. It employs more than 3,600 staff in the United Kingdom and France. The operation of the cross-Channel Fixed Link, in which two Eurotunnel Group companies are concessionaires until 2086, represents the core business of the Group. Opened in 1994, the Channel Tunnel, the vital link between the United Kingdom and the continent, has been used by more than 300 million passengers. The rail Shuttle transport system carries 2.5 million cars (Le Shuttle) and 1.5 million trucks every year, making it by far the world leader in piggyback transport. High-speed passenger trains and rail freight trains also run through the Tunnel. In 2009, Eurotunnel Group created the Europorte group of companies, which is a particularly dynamic springboard for growth. These subsidiaries are now the third largest rail freight operator (for hauling trains) in the UK and France. They operate and maintain the rail infrastructures of eight major ports in France, delivering logistics services to major European industrial players. Eurotunnel Group is also pursuing its development in the businesses it manages or to which it was appointed by the French government: land development, training in railway professions... Eurotunnel Group owns three ferries and leases the vessels to a ferry operating company, thus increasing the transport offer across the Straits of Dover.
