School today

The Ecole polytechnique de Bruxelles trains engineers capable to be active citizens. More than a diploma, it gives students the opportunity to flourish in the realization of concrete projects that respond to current and future problems.

Nos missions

A century and a half of excellence

Founded in 1873, the École polytechnique de Bruxelles was originally intended "to help provide Belgian industry with people who are up to the progress of science". Two world wars and 145 years later, the School has evolved well.


The future of the School

Within five years, the School's center of gravity will move to the Plaine campus with the construction of two buildings at the heart of the new "Science and Technology Center of Excellence": the E building and the Learning & Innovation Center.
