Personal computer: required configuration

ENSTA Paris practices a comodal pedagogy composed of face-to-face courses, digital teaching resources and hybrid sessions. In addition, many courses and projects require the use of digital tools.  It is therefore essential that you have a laptop computer. The required configuration is as follows:

  • Processor: minimum: Intel or AMD processor with 4 or more cores (Core i5 or higher, Ryzen 5 or higher)
  • Disk space: minimum 256 GB free space
  • RAM: minimum 8 GB
  • Graphics: no specific graphics card is required
  • A consistently supported operating system and an antivirus software, both up-to-date, are compulsory.

Finally, it should be noted that the latest generation Macs with M1 processors are not compatible with all the tools used at the school and therefore do not constitute a valid configuration.

The conformity of your configuration will be checked at the beginning of the school year.

For any question concerning the configuration of the computer, you can contact the DSI of ENSTA Paris at the following address: dsi.byod@ensta-paris.fr


 If you enroll in the Engineering course and are a French citizen, you can apply for a scholarship on social criteria (criteria identical to those of CROUS). Please note: CROUS scholarship holders of the previous year must also apply for an ENSTA Paris maintenance scholarship, since the school is under the supervision of the Ministry of the Armed Forces and the scholarship application is therefore not automatically renewed.

All information on scholarships


If you are joining the Engineering course of ENSTA Paris this year, you are guaranteed to have an accommodation offer as long as you answered "Definitive Yes". You will be contacted directly by our accommodations office about this.

For students arriving from a non-European country, a COVID-19 medical certificate dated less than 72 hours will be required upon entering your accommodation.

Participation to WEI

As a new student at ENSTA Paris, you will certainly take part in the WEI. It is a few days that allow newcomers to get to know each other, but also students from the other years in a warm, friendly and relaxed stay.

This year, almost all the students from the 1st year will be present and many 3rd year students as well.

To participate, you will need to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of your arrival at ENSTA Paris.

If you have any questions, the student office (bde@ensta-paris.fr) will be happy to answer them.


If you have a disability and need specific accommodation, you can address your requests to the school's disability advisor.
