Courses

In 3 years become
A Computer Expert

Epitech is the school of innovation and IT expertise which, in three years of bachelor studies, transforms its students into 360 degree professionals experienced in the task completion and capable of adapting to the challenges and requirements of companies. We use projects as a teaching method.By the end of their course, the student will have completed a total of 39 projects and 72 mini-projects

Articulated around a kick-off, a bootsrap, follow ups, pitches and keynotes, the chronology of projects at Epitech is designed to be as close as possible to a business project with the watchwords; Agility and Rigor. This is an opportunity for our students to understand an operation that empowers them while benefiting from supervision at each stage of advancement.

At the end of the semester, these presentations of the “big projects” of the year allow students to share their technical success and get into the habit of presenting and explaining their achievements.The Glues Performed alone or in pairs, these exercises in limited time allow students to develop their autonomy, their ability to work under constraint and their rigor.

3 qualities to succeed

  • Learning autonomy
  • Group work learning
  • Acquisition of sector working methods

  • The ability to plan for the future with a view of travelling abroad.

Highlights

The internship

A real transition between the first and second year, this first experience in business will allow students to put into perspective the skills already acquired, to measure the progress made and to specify their professional project.

The C++ Pool

It consists of 3 weeks of intensive work, the aim of which is to support students in the discovery of a new programming paradigm: object-oriented programming.

Projects that address cross-cutting issues of IT, indie studio and zappy

These are the two emblematic projects of the second year, each the subject of their own keynote, allow students to approach complex concepts in a group and to have a first approach to the realization of projects combining all the elements of development, low-level programming at the graphical interface. Through the creation of a real video game integrating the graphics engines of the market and a complex simulation combining parallel programming and artificial intelligence, they will be able to synthesize their knowledge before tackling in the 3rd year the realization of their own projects
