Education
Master of Science

The École Polytechnique (commonly known as Polytechnique or by the nickname X) is a French public institution of higher education and research, located in Palaiseau near Paris. Polytechnique is considered to be the most selective and prestigious of the French Grandes écoles,[2][3] and is renowned for its four-year[4] undergraduate-postgraduate « Ingénieur Polytechnicien » degree in science and engineering.[5] Known for its extremely competitive entrance examination, students are usually admitted after two years of highly selective university-level preparation in mathematics and physics. In addition to the 2,000 polytechnic engineer students, the institution welcomes about 439 master students and 572 doctoral students, for a total enrollment of 2,900.[1] Polytechnique was established in 1794 by the mathematician Gaspard Monge during the French Revolution,[6] and became a military academy under Napoleon I in 1804. Today, the institution still runs under the supervision of the French ministry of Defence. Initially located in the Latin Quarter of central Paris, the establishment was moved in 1976 to Palaiseau on the Saclay Plateau, southwest of Paris.[7] Polytechnique is a founding member of ParisTech, a grouping of leading Paris-area engineering colleges established in 2007. It joins in 2014 as a founding member and as the head of pluridisciplinary technology and innovation institute the confederal "University of Paris in Saclay". Since 1995, Polytechnique has admitted a significant number of international applicants to its polytechnic engineer program,[8][9] and 20% of each cohort are foreign students.[10] Polytechnique is ranked among the best universities in the world. Among its alumni are two Nobel Prize winners, one Fields Medalist, three Presidents of France and many CEOs of French and international companies. It could be seen as France's MIT for its leading role in the formation of technology innovators and company leaders.

The Wholesale Applications Community has been established to increase the overall market for mobile applications. WAC will achieve this goal by encouraging open standardized technologies, driving scaled deployment of those technologies and providing complimentary commercial models. This will allow developers to deploy a single application across multiple devices (through the use of standard technologies) and across multiple operators (without the need to negotiate with each of them). WAC will provide the commercial enablers which will allow the developer to be paid for the applications which are then sold through any associated application store.WAC will promote the use of web technologies to enable developers to write a single application which can run across multiple mobile device platforms. WAC will also enable all applications to be deployed across the many retail application stores of its operators. Together, this will really enable developers to write once and deploy everywhere. The end result of the WAC approach will be to massively increase the number of applications which are available to users by simplifying and lowering the cost of their development, testing and deployment by developers. WAC is the vehicle to bring the mobile industry together to achieve this goal.The WAC believes in open and transparent operations which will maximize the trust shown by developers, operators and other industry players. Representation in the WAC will be broad and diverse with opportunities to join WAC and its activities in the coming months.
