English-taught semester INTERNET OF THINGS

Due to the evolution of the pandemic in France and the uncertainty surrounding the coming months, we have decided to cancel applications to our IoT programme for spring 2021, as this programme specifically requires exchanges and team-work / hands-on work that is incompatible with social distancing and the regulations we have to follow.
We are deeply disappointed and sorry but made our decision taking into consideration the well-being of students.
We look forward to welcoming you in 2022!


A six-month course (spring only) conducted in English


–          Teach students what the IoT is, and its different aspects: security, cloud, infrastructure and programming, fog computing;

–       Allow IT students to specialize in the field of IoT

–          Offer international and French students the opportunity to develop their technical and computing skills while focusing on a booming field that is expected to keep growing in the coming years;

–          Train students to work in groups and with people from different educational and cultural backgrounds;
