Master in Computer science

Master in Computer science

Master of Science in Informatics at Grenoble (MoSIG)

Presentation and goals

The training covers a wide spectrum at the level of the first year master's trains graduates with a general education and foundation solid in computer science (in terms of programming languages, databases, networks, software engineering, object-oriented design/programming, complexity, and interactive software) ; the second year of the master's allows students to acquire organizational skills related to research work and to become specialized in a field of computer science in connection with the numerous options offered (Information systems and advanced software engineering, Human-centred computer science - design of highly reliable embedded and cyberphysical systems, artificial Intelligence and web - graphics, vision, and robotics, interactive and ubiquitous systems, and embedded, parallel, and distributed systems). The objective is to give the necessary foundations for a job in research and development as well as to undertake a thesis in Computer science in the fields covered by academic and industrial laboratories.

The aim of the course is to carry out high-level training in computer science for teaching, research, engineering, and development.

Expertise : The teaching units of semester 8 (first year of master's) are for the most part introductions to the different specialties of the second year of the master's. In this sense, they constitute training for research. The second year master's allows students to acquire organizational skills and skills related to researcher work - Formulate a research problem and propose a solution - Locate a research problem in the scientific literature - Evaluate and validate a solution to a research problem - Write a scientific publication - Communicating the results of research work - Develop and use mathematical and computer tools - Communicate in English and French - Become a specialist in a field of computer science related to computer research on the site: information systems and advanced software engineering - human-centred computer science - foundations of Computer science : design and validation - artificial intelligence and web - graphics, vision and robotics - interactive and ubiquitous systems - embedded, parallel and distributed systems

Practica, projects, and missions

Type : Mandatory
Duration : 4 to 6 months
Location : In France or abroad

A mandatory practicum or research project of 4 to 6 months is carried out in the second semester. It can be done in a research laboratory but also in the R&D department of a company. In this case, a teacher-researcher of the training tutors the practicum and ensures the training in the research provided. This research project allows for good immersion in the world of research, the discovery of the research profession and the preliminary contacts for the eventual pursuit of a thesis.
