Program objectives

The first year of the program is made of two core semesters of broad-spectrum Informatics classes. It gives students the necessary skills to tackle in-depths subjects in the second year of the program.

The specialty EID2 MSc focuses on data science and machine learning. The program is particularly suited for students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in one of the fields of computer science, mathematics or statistics, and wish to pursue a career in data science and analytics.

The EID2 MSc is designed to produce graduates with the knowledge and skills to:

    • Select, apply and evaluate machine learning, business analytics and data mining techniques which are focused on discovering knowledge that can be acted on to add value to a company.
    • Bring both an in-depth theoretical understanding, and the practical hands-on experience, to a data science and machine learning project including implementing novel and emerging techniques.
    • Keep abreast of current research and business analytics related topics.

Program overview

The cornerstone of this Master's program in Informatics lays on a tight link bridging the university's research and teaching vocations. This strong connection is realized through elective orientation and discovery classes allowing students to define their professional goals. In the second year of the Master's program, part of the third semester offers several concentrations each with their specific curriculum, while still keeping a common core of foundational, discovery and cultural “TUs” (Teaching Units).

The program for the EID2 MSc is built on a foundation of core and elective courses. This program joins courses with a Computer Science main theme, those with a Statistical data analysis, Data Science, Machine Learning, Advanced Databases, Data Mining, Business Analytics, and Data Warehousing main theme, and those with cultural courses. The electives courses may be chosen, in consultation with the student's advisor, to meet the interdisciplinary  and the speciality distribution requirements. The fourth semester is devoted to an internship specific to each concentration and that can focus on either research careers or engineering careers.

Performance assessment

•    Year-long tests and final exams
•    M1 (first year) thesis and M2 (second year) internship: written report and oral defense.

Admission requirements

•    M1: students can be admitted into the first year (M1) or second year (M2) of the program. In general however, admission is selective into the first year to any student holding a Bachelor's degree in informatics.

•    M2: to be admitted in the second year of the Master's program, students must pass the first year of a Master's degree in IT. Admission is granted by the president of the University upon the recommendation of the program's director. The program's director requests the opinion of a jury on each student's ability to perform in the second year of the program. For students coming from other Master's programs (mathematics and IT, statistics, Applied IT for Business Management…), admission may be granted upon review of the applicant's background in Informatics.

Career placement

•    Jobs: graduates from the Master's degree in Informatics generally find employment as:
-    Data scientists
-    Data miners
-    Project Managers in decision-making
-    Designers of specialized software tools
-    Research and development engineers
-    Consulting experts in decision-making
-    Researcher (with a PhD) in the fields of machine learning, data science, decision-making.

•    Fields: in high-tech areas of Aeronautics, Automotive, Telecommunications, Automatisms, Robotics, Energy, Laboratories, Banks, Insurance companies, service and applications IT, Retail.

Further education

After graduating from the Master's program, students can get into PhD programs with research teams within the LIPN and within other partnering labs such as the LAMSADE (Université Paris 9), the LIP6 (Sorbonne Université), the LRI and the LIMSI (Université Paris-Saclay) or any other university or industry lab, as well as with the IFSTTAR, INRIA, INRA, CENAGREF, IRD and IGN. Funding opportunities for PhD research are available with Cifre scholarships.
