The Alumni Corner
The alumni of ParisTech schools are trained to work in every sector even if each school has a privileged one. They work then either in engineering or consulting or academia and research. They work in the industry, in the services or even in the public administration. They work as manager, consultant or researcher etc. They work in big companies or in SMEs. Some of them have decided to create their own company, a startup. They work in France or abroad. Briefly, the ParisTech engineers are able to work in any environment, in any place. Each of them exploits the opportunities offered by ParisTech schools to find his/her way in the world and to contribute to sustainable development and social progress through innovation in science and technology.
