Students carry out three projects during the first two years: one software development project and two design projects: one during the first year, and the other during the second year.

The software development project, implementing modern techniques of software engineering and development methodology, is an opportunity for students to tackle, within a project approach, all phases of a development: definition of needs, specification, design, implementation, unit and integration tests, reception. It is completed through the supplying of the corresponding files, operating and maintenance instructions included.

The design projects allow students to perform design and realisation work, important both in quantity and quality, by adopting an engineer’s state of mind, notably dealing with feasibility and cost. They consist of a comprehensive theoretical study, following bibliographic research and laboratory work that permit its validation and to verify that the finished product is in compliance with the initial specifications sheet.

Personalised Projects

For these projects, it is possible for the students themselves to propose the subject of study. They submit their proposition in the form of a precise and detailed specifications sheet to the professors who judge the project’s feasibility, its compliance with the expected level and field of competency, the seriousness of the preliminary study, and organise its supervision. Some of these projects are done in association with students from different Campuses. They thus permit them to become familiar telecommuting.

Third Year Projects

In the third year, students spend approximately half of the time during the two first quarters carrying out projects and performing industrial studies proposed by enterprises within the framework of contracts with the School’s Industrial partner. At this level of instruction, it is a matter of true research training.
