Master in Computer science

Master in Computer science

Computer engineering block-release 2nd year

Presentation and goals

The Computer engineering programme is a vocational training course in the field of general software engineering. The course focuses on the mastery of computer engineering methods and tools and offers specialization in the following areas : human-machine interaction, distributed and embedded systems as well as database and information systems. Training exists in two forms but with the same shared lessons (except for two teaching units): 

  • One for the classical student (status of intern during his/her presence in the company)
  • The other in block-release (for an apprenticeship contract, a contract for professionalization, and a contract to provide professional training)



Programme strengths

Since its creation in 1984, the quality of the training has been based on a team of teachers who are experts in the fields covered: this specificity of the training has allowed it to become established in particular within the industrial fabric of Grenoble. This point greatly favours the professional integration of our students (for example, 10 block-release students out of 12 were hired on a permanent basis immediately at the end of the training in August 2015) : the degree is recognized for its quality.
