dbo:abstract
  • Cet article dresse une liste de polytechniciens célèbres ou très connus, classée par promotion, et par ordre alphabétique à l'intérieur de chacune d’elles. Contrairement à la plupart des écoles d'ingénieurs, la promotion est l'année d’entrée, et non celle de sortie. Lorsqu’un polytechnicien redouble, ce qui ne concerne que très peu d’élèves, la promotion de l’élève change et celui-ci est alors considéré comme relevant de la promotion suivante. (fr)
