• French Engineering Grandes Ecoles : I'm often asked "what is this Grande Ecole is worth?" There are many, and each one is often no bigger than a university department (that is why you never heard about them in the UK). The magazine Le Point provides a ranking of Grandes Ecoles here , but then again many are very specialised, like several Ecole de Mines = Materials, Chimie = Chemistry, Espace = Aerospace ... , so don't be put off by ranks beyond 10. For instance 19 and 22 are certainly recommendable in Fluid Mechanics. Oh, and Ecole des Ponts et Chaussées is not just about Bridges and Roads, in fact Fluid Mechanics is one of its specialities (the name comes from Napoleon's unfortunate obsession of moving his armies around Europe when he founded the school)
