This year’s virtual Open Day gives the unique opportunity to discover École Polytechnique in a new way and envision your future studies on campus!
Driven by the success of the first edition, École Polytechnique hosts its second Open Day on October 10, 2020. In order to allow students and future candidates to discover the different programs offered at École Polytechnique, all academic program directors will participate in this year’s virtual Open Day, interacting with high school students and their parents, and all other potential future candidates.
This virtual and fully interactive event targets both French and international audiences, and is offered in French and in English. This year’s virtual Open Day strives to offer international participants the opportunity to follow the conferences and ask their questions live.
