Polytech Marseille is a Grande Ecole d’Ingénieurs (graduate school of science and engineering) that is part of Aix Marseille Université, the biggest university in France. The School offers 8 specialist courses in New Technologies which lead to an engineering degree after 5 years of studies.


New: In favour of English-speaking students, the Polytech France programme!
Since the start of the 2019 academic year, the Polytech group has implemented a new programme, in an original format, for English-speaking students. The first year is dedicated to immersion in French culture (intensive language courses, cultural visits, one week immersion in the Polytech specialty school). It takes place in Marseille in cooperation with Polytech Marseille for the coordination of the programme. Indeed, each student chooses, upon entering the programme, his specialty for the following two years allowing the student to integrate the engineering cycle in one of the schools of the Polytech group.
Regarding admissions to this programme, the files must be completed before 31th March and download from

High level engineering degrees

Our advanced level engineering courses have a strong professional focus: they include compulsory work placements in a professional organisation.

These programs also benefit from a top rank scientific environment, with teaching staff drawn from laboratories attached to major French research organisations that are among the leaders in their field.

Student-engineers are recruited on the basis of a selective admissions process, via one of two nationwide competitive admissions examinations (concours):

  • either after the baccalauréat (national secondary school graduation examination) for admission to a five-year course;
  • or after two years of higher education for admission to a three-year course.

As the courses are taught in French, we require B2 level in French. If this is not the case, we propose the Polytech France program which includes one year of intensive French courses and two years of enginering master degree.


Programs with national and international quality labels

The courses are approved by the Commission du titre d’Ingénieurs (CTI) the French authority that authorizes recognised engineering schools to deliver the Diplôme d’Ingénieur (a state-recognised title, recognized as equivalent to a “Master in Engineering” by AACRAO) and thus guarantees the quality of the courses

The courses are also accredited Eurace (European quality label for engineering education).

Polytech Marseille is also member of The Conférence des Grandes Écoles, a French association regrouping leading Engineering and Business schools.
