History

  • In 1845, Alphonse Foy, director of telegraphic lines, proposed a school specializing in telegraphy for Polytechnicians. His proposition was rejected.
  • The school was founded on 12 July 1878 as the École professionnelle supérieure des postes et télégraphes (EPSPT).
  • In 1912 the school's name was changed to École supérieure des postes et télégraphes (ESPT).
  • In 1934 the ESPT moved to rue Barrault, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.
  • In 1938 the school was renamed École nationale supérieure des postes, télégraphes et téléphones (ENSPTT), and in the same year, the President of France, Albert Lebrun honored the school Legion of Honor.
  • During the Second World War, in 1942, the schhol was divided into two schools: the ENSPTT and École nationale supérieure des télécommunications (ENST). The ENSPTT was closed on 31 December 2002.
  • In 1971 the ENST passed under the direct guardianship of the Direction générale des télécommunications, and the development of the telecommunications during this period drove the state to create two associate schools: the ENST Bretagne in 1977 at Brest, and the INT in 1979 at Évry.

The Engineering diploma delivered by ENST is roughly equivalent to a Master of Engineering in the USA. Around 250 engineers graduate each year from ENST. 30% to 35% of the graduates are non-French.
