Master of Computer Science (M1)

The Computer Science major is an advanced scientific and technical qualification which trains computer scientists capable of adapting to the rapid evolution of information technology.

The course content, which is oriented both towards research and business, is the most exhaustive of all the university courses in the Paris region. It has been developed in partnership with other institutions: ENST, ENSTA, CNAM, IRCAM, ITESCIA. This course is, therefore, one of the most important axes for computer science training in Europe. It is enriched by the research potential of the Computer Science Laboratory of Paris (laboratoire d’informatique de Paris - LIP6), which is one of the most important CNRS affiliated university computer science laboratories.

It is also possible to study abroad as part of this degree.

Career opportunities

The vast majority of positions open to graduates of this computer science major are in computer research or engineering in industry or services relating to the research and development sector.

However, certain positions are accessible in the “production, operation and administration” and the “maintenance, support and services” sectors.

The set of conceptual and technological knowledge mastered by the student depends on the specialization chosen.



All the first year papers are worth 6 ECTS, including a substantial team project. The second year papers are all worth 3 ECTS, except for the end of year internship, which is worth 18 ECTS. The internship takes place either in a laboratory or in a company, and lasts a minimum of five months.

All the major’s specializations have both a research and a professional orientation. At the beginning of the course, students choose the specialization that will define the set of fundamental and technological knowledge that they wish to learn. There are set programs defined within each specialization to help students make their choice according to their personal and professional objectives.

The Computer Science major has been organized to promote double majors with mathematics, electronics and acoustics.


Specializations offered in M2:

  • Electronic systems, computer systems (ex ACSI)
    The specialization trains specialists in the design of circuits and integrated electronic systems, which are at the heart of most industrial equipment (automobile, telecommunications, gaming, whiteware, etc...).
  • Artificial intelligence and decision (in French, IAD)
    The IAD specialization trains information technology specialists who master the concepts, models and tools of artificial intelligence, decision support systems and operations research.
  • Imaging (IMA)
    The imaging specialization gives students advanced training in fields linked with imaging. It includes coherent programs ranging from the foundations of the discipline to the most advanced techniques.
  • Networks
    The networks specialization trains researchers in fields such as network design and telecommunications systems, transmission of media streams and the internet of the future. It also qualifies “generalist” network engineers, telecommunications systems developers and network and systems administrators.
  • Distributed systems and applications (in French, SAR)
    The SAR specialization trains specialists in design and development of distributed systems, capable of understanding and implementing the methods, techniques and mechanisms of the discipline.
  • Science and technology of software (in French, STL)
    The STL specialization trains specialists in development and monitoring of software applications, with a solid foundation in programming languages and algorithmic techniques.
  • Bioinformatics and modeling 


The computer science major is intended principally for graduates of the Bachelor of computer science or any equivalent diploma. Depending on the chosen specialization, certain prerequisites are strongly recommended.

Students with a Bachelor of mathematics and computer science or electronics may also be accepted into certain specializations of this Master’s degree. Students in their final year of engineering school who have majored in computer science may also apply for second year of this degree.
