The ESTP is one of the French “Grandes Ecoles”, which are the leading institutions for French engineering and management education. The “Grandes Ecoles” are distinguished by a highly selective admission process, a limited number of students and quality programmes. 

In France, the title of “engineer” and the professional habilitation that goes with it, is awarded with the 5 year degree “diplôme d’ingénieur –master’s degree”. There is no intermediate "bachelor degree" conferring the title of engineer.

Studies are normally accomplished in a “Grande Ecole d’Ingénieurs”.

The engineering degree programmes are reviewed and accredited every 6 years by national authority “Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur” (CTI).

Institutions habilitated by CTI to award engineering degrees assemble in the “Conférence des Directeurs des Ecoles Françaises d’Ingénieurs” (CDEFI).

Many of engineering and management "Grandes Ecoles" are members of the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles” (CGE).

The ESTP Paris belongs to the private "Grandes Ecoles" that are members of the "Union des Grandes Ecoles Indépendantes" (UGEI).
