Founded in 1747, the École nationale des ponts et chaussées (ENPC) ("National school of Bridges and Roads"), often referred to as les Ponts, is the world's oldest civil engineering school. It remains to this day one of the most prestigious French Grandes Écoles of engineering.

It is headquartered in Marne-la-Vallée (suburb of Paris). It is the oldest and among the most prestigious institutes members of ParisTech (Paris Institute of Technology).
