3 programs, 3 majors, 3 manners of thinking

Isep offers 3 courses for foreign students, depending on their degree. The school offers to students coming under International Exchange Programs, such as Erasmus+, GE4, Micefa or Bilateral Agreement, to select modules of courses from a variety of topics or to choose one major.

However, if you have a post secondary degree in Sciences, you can apply to the International Integrated Cycle (CII) Program, composed of 2 years of preparatory cycle (called classe préparatoire in French) then 3 years of engineering cycle, where you can choose from 8 majors, including 3 in English : Software Engineering, Embedded systems and Wireless Telecommunications/IoT systems.

If you already have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, you can apply directly to the Engineering Master Degree program, composed of the 3 years with the 3 majors mentioned above.

  • If you consider yourself more like a developer who likes to code, I advise you to choose the major Software Engineering. You will learn mainly advanced algorithms (in Java) and fundamentals of networks, cybersecurity, big data or IoT, not to mention management courses or web/mobile. An excellent springboard to become an IT consultant, a project manager or a mobile/desktop developer engineer.

  • Fan of IoT and connected objects ? Wireless Telecommunication and IoT Systems can be a very interesting professional opportunity because it combines computer skills (networks, security, oriented programming, protocols) and electronic skills (sensors, micro-controllers, component optimization, telecommunication). Of course, management and marketing are not neglected.

  • Finally, Embedded Systems is intended for future engineers who wish to work in specialized industries, such as aeronautics, the military, the space industry, energy, telecommunications and more. You will work mainly on advanced electronic solutions, like robotics or networks, as well as systems architecture (CPU design, memory hierarchy, logic design, instruction set architecture, etc).

For the 3 majors, you will have to do an internship at the end of your studies, but as for many institutions that I presented here, find an internship is not complicated, companies often come directly to you !
