MIT (Multimedia and Information Technology)

The MIT major aims at training students to become Digital Leaders! They need to be able to innovate, give suggestions for new contents, new uses, new services, based on open technologies or those of major publishers (IBM, Microsoft, Adobe, etc.). In a global context where digital issues are becoming strategic, MIT engineers work across all economic sectors as new service architects or leaders of innovative projects. They demonstrate technological thoroughness and strong listening skills and are able to manage the human factor linked to new uses.

CSAC (Cognitive Science and Advanced Computing)

The CSAC major aims at industrializing recent results obtained from research in cognitive science, in particular in the field of shape recognition and decision aid systems. Applications are found in all fields, from the nuclear sector to ambient intelligence. CSAC engineers have in-depth training in symbolic and numerical approaches and are particularly well trained for industrial activities in fields such as:

Cognitive sciences advanced computing major

  • Computer vision and robotics
  • Knowledge extraction and management
  • Machine learning
  • Interactive video games

SCI research (Scientific computing and image)

The SCI major is designed to train students for academic research and gives them a chance to work in a laboratory alongside lecturers/scholars. Research topics include image processing, robot manipulation, speech processing, model checking and decision aids. SCI engineers will first work on a PhD in France or abroad and then will join a community of researchers in an academic environment or in a research unit in a large company or an innovative start-up.

SNS (Systems, Networks and Security)

System, network, security

The SNS major teaches students about:

  • Systems (from design to administration)
  • Networks (existing and new generation)
  • Security (functional and technical)
  • Related organization (governance, management system...)

SNS engineers will work as information security officers (ISO), drawing on their knowledge of businesses and fundamental control mechanisms, their ability to understand the risks and governance of a business, to identify areas of improvement linked to infrastructure technologies and the new services made possible by new information system architectures.

CERES (Computing Engineering for Real-time and Embedded Systems)

Taught in parallel to robotics classes, the CERES major strengthens students’ knowledge of systems and helps them develop excellent skills in embedded environments (open software, major publishers or proprietary software). The market is dynamic (40% of companies created after 1995) and 70% of people working in it are qualified engineers.

Computing Engineering for Real-time and Embedded Systems

CERES experts work on embedded systems and software (avionics, aerospace, automobile, medicine...), in robotics, heavy industry or electronic consumer goods (interactive console, mobile phones, leisure robots...).

TCOM (Telecommunications)

The TCOM major aims at giving future managers strong technical skills in the following fields:


  • telephony (landline or wireless)
  • networks and related security
  • technical architecture and infrastructure

Jobs centre around new uses (mobility, collaborative working, unified communications, teleworking...), respecting the constraints and economic challenges of companies (increasing ROI and productivity) and their telecommunication partners.

ISSE (Information Systems and Software Engineering)

The ISSE major is structured around 4 topics:

  • Processes: analyzing, integrating, developing, validating and making sure products/projects are successful and of good quality
  • Techniques: acquiring know-how skills in software engineering and IS
  • Technology: mastering the latest innovations
  • Management: hierarchical relations, clients and partners...

Information Systems and Software Engineering

ISSE engineers works in large companies or consulting firms and are in charge of:

  • Understanding technological challenges and jobs
  • Suggesting and developing competitive and realistic solutions
  • Working on complex issues
  • Steering projects and changes resulting from them

GITM (Global IT Management)

The GITM major is taught in English and prepares students to become international project managers in the field of ICT. They carry out the following tasks:

  • Project management from the perspective of the client and users,
  • Project management from a technical point of view. Graduates will work as IT project management supervisors (contractors or in-house): auditor, technology monitoring officer, project officer, consultant, business engineer, sales engineer, etc.
