MINES ParisTech, the École des Mines de Paris, is one of the oldest French higher education institutions in engineering. While its inspirational model has not changed, its teaching methods and its research have been anticipating and accompanying its times ever since 1783. Two Nobel laureates were trained at the School: Georges Charpak (Physics, 1992) and Maurice Allais (Economics, 1988). Our alumni enjoy challenging careers in a variety of fields.
