What to remember from the 2022 ranking of engineering schools

A modified top 10, but an unwavering champion. École Polytechnique remains the leader of our 2022 ranking. The top of the ranking is captured by generalist schools, which represent ten of the top fifteen establishments. As in 2021, public schools are in the majority, even if five private schools, the majority of which specialize in IT, are in our top 20. Like Esilv (5th) and ECE (7th), these establishments capitalize on their strong links with the company and their penchant for digital technology, a sector that is recruiting at full speed.

On the regional side, the top 10 is largely dominated by schools located in Ile-de-France. But regional schools are not absent with Mines Nancy (6th), Centrale Lyon (8th) and IMT Atlantique (10th).


As for the 2021 edition, we used the public data of the Commission des titres d’Ingénieur (CTI), others from the database of the Conference of Directors of French Engineering Schools (Cdefi).

For students and teachers alike, the past few months have been marked by the health crisis, which has seriously affected the methods of teaching, assessment and travel in schools. Since the first confinement in March 2020, students have lived to the rhythm of distancing and the cancellation of internships and academic exchanges abroad.

Emphasis on proximity to businesses

This unprecedented situation has led us to review our international criterion, the central vector of our ranking, which had an overall coefficient of 35. This year it is made up of three indicators (for an overall coefficient of 20): the rate of pupils in the last promotion having spent at least six months abroad and in academic exchanges, for which we have used data from last year, and the rate of graduates of the penultimate promotion having a job abroad, for which we used the latest available data.

The professional integration criterion goes from a total coefficient of 25 to 30, with the addition of the number of weeks of compulsory internship in the engineering cycle. The search criterion does not change (coefficient 25). Still with the idea of ​​affirming the industrial DNA of our ranking, our ultimate pillar, that of proximity to businesses, has been reduced from an overall coefficient of 20 to 25, with the addition of two indicators. This is reflected in the rise of schools that promote entrepreneurship, such as Icam, Enim, Esiea and UniLaSalle.

Tuition fees, percentage of work-study students, proportion of girls… We have enriched the school files with non-classifying data, in order to provide complete information and to correspond as closely as possible to the expectations of both students and businesses. Beyond the general classification, we present opposite the champions by category. Because a good school is above all a school which meets the aspirations of each individual.
