There are three main sections at the ESI : Information Management Systems, l'Industrial Data Processing and Networks and telecommunications.

Common-core curriculum

During the first year, the three programmes are built on a common-core curriculum which includes mathematics and statistics, communication in French and English, analysis and database (design and management), programming (methods and languages, procedural and object oriented), operating systems, network, basics on hardware. Paralleling this common core, more specialised modules are added to each programme. (see comparative table of the different sections)

At the moment, all classes are taught in French, except for the English module. But we have some contacts with companies providing placements in English-speaking environments.

Each programme includes 180 ECTS (three years) : 150 ECTS for the modules, exercises and projects at school, and 30 ECTS for a professional placement during the last year second semester.

Sections

Information Management Systems

The Information Management Systems option is closely linked to the economic field. It offers a wide variety of courses in all areas of computing and leads the way to the development of systems in client server architectures, networks, databases and graphic interfaces.
