Online resources

Thanks to the online teaching resources interface, teachers can share with students:

  • the course documents;
  • the tutorial classes;
  • details about the functioning of the course.

On this website, students can also subscribe to mailing lists for advanced courses.

Teaching evaluation

At the end of each course sequence, students are invited to give their opinion of their courses and their professors. Several questions are asked, ranging from the availability of the professor to the pedagogical content of the course. The results of these evaluations are taken into account for the following university year.

Student representation

Each year, the students elect two representatives. The elections are held in November-December. The student representatives will have the opportunity to express their views on the teaching during two annual meetings with the director of teaching and when they are invited to the education council. In addition, they participate in the development of teaching modules for the following year and in the examinations committee.

Students association: SYNAPSE

The Synapse Association has two main goals. One the one hand, its objective is to organize parties and cultural events in and outside PSE to promote a “school spirit” and increase students’ occasions to meet and share good times together. On the other hand, it has the ambition to be a complement to the formations provided at PSE. The goal is to strengthen the relations with the Alumni, and to build great opportunities (internships, round tables...) for the students at PSE and their future professional paths. Come to meet us in Room 1-01 !


Throughout the year, various seminars are organized for SIA students, in order for them to get in touch with practitioners and interact with companies and organizations that are involved with projects appraisals and cost-benefit analysis, and who can be potential employers as well.
