Voluntary activities

The voluntary activities of Epitech constitutes one of the essential parameters of a fulfilling student life and at the same time a possible smooth transition to professional life. This is why our students have managed to build a dense and varied network of community-based associations, allowing everyone to discover, develop or even share a passion.

A variety of student associations reflecting the diversity of profiles that make up
Epitech

A school is its own entity. A place where you acquire technical skills, a place where you learn to live and work hand in hand, a place where you discover yourself and where you flourish. This is how associative life comes naturally to complement educational curricula, and allow students to develop new experiences, at their own pace. Whether you want to work for digital diversity, fight exclusion, promote innovation respectful of humanity, fight global warming, promote code with a large part of the population… everyone will find the association which best suits their own convictions and the project which is close to their heart. It is therefore not surprising to see our students evolve into the highest public or institutional spheres such as the UN or MIT. Only one limit… your ambition!
