  • Cette liste d'anciens élèves de l'École polytechnique regroupe les anciens élèves et diplômés de l’École polytechnique, célèbres ou très connus, qu'ils aient ou non fini leur scolarité et qu'ils soient issus du cycle ingénieur polytechnicien, du cycle master ou du cycle doctoral. La présente liste est classée par catégorie, puis par promotion, puis par ordre alphabétique. L'adjonction de nouvelles personnalités dans la liste se fait en respectant les . Le titre d’ancien élève de l’École polytechnique ne peut être porté, depuis la mise en application du décret du 12 juillet 2001, qu’après délivrance du diplôme de fin d’études de l’École polytechnique. Les anciens élèves de l’École polytechnique sont désignés par la lettre X suivie du millésime de leur promotion. Les titulaires d’un diplôme de master ou de doctorat sont respectivement désignés par les lettres M et D suivies de l’année d’obtention de leur diplôme, c'est-à-dire l'année de sortie de l'École. L'association des anciens élèves est dénommée « Association des anciens élèves et diplômés de l'École polytechnique – AX » depuis le 30 septembre 2008 et accueille depuis cette date, en plus des anciens élèves (titulaires du diplôme d'ingénieur), les actuels élèves de la formation polytechnicienne ainsi que les diplômés et étudiants de doctorat et de master.
