ÉCOLE DES PONTS PARISTECH
École des Ponts ParisTech is a leading French engineering school. Since 1747, it has been training top-level engineers, future leaders and researchers capable of meeting the challenges of society and transforming it. In addition to civil engineering and town and country planning, which have historically been the hallmarks of its prestige, the School is developing training and research of excellence linked to the challenges of the ecological transition. Concerned with facing up to the challenges of our time, the school has for several years been involved in a process of sustainable development and social inclusion.
The mission of d.school Paris from École des Ponts ParisTech is to transmit innovative design methods through practical experience, in order to inspire the players of tomorrow’s world.
For 12 years, it has been developing the practice of design thinking as an approach to innovation and its management. It has recently extended its scope by incorporating the practices of design fiction and sustainable design into its learning methods.
By developing these three expertise areas, d.school Paris aims to experiment with a new, unique, more global approach, taking into account all the issues surrounding innovation, both for human beings and for the future they design for themselves and the world they live in.
