Carreers opportunities

In an ever changing sector, our degree in computer science constitutes a major asset on the job market: over 95% of our graduates find work within the first three weeks of graduating.

There are numerous career avenues : systems analyst, programmer, applications developer, project leader, network leader, data base coordinator, trainer, commercial representative, computer consultant, etc. in various sectors, from small- and medium-sized companies to large multinational corporations, from banking to farming, from industry to the humanitarian sector, etc.

ESI educational mission

  • To train computer specialists capable of adapting to the constantly changing development of new systems and new computer techniques
  • To provide high-quality teaching as well as practical training
  • To ensure an individual follow-up of each student during lab assignments (PC and mainframe programming, software engineering, databases, operating systems, microprocessors, programming automatons, electronics, etc.)

Final-year Placement (Internship)

The final year ends with a 15-week training placement in a company aimed at providing students with the opportunity of gaining practical work experience.

This placement highlights ESI students' skills and their ability to adapt, both of which are qualities highly prized by prospective employers. Moreover, it often serves as a springboard for employment.

The setting and facilities

In February 2001, ESI moved to new comfortable and spacious premises. The School's software and hardware used by students are constantly upgraded in keeping with new developments in the computing market.

The computing facilities made available to students include access to all types of computers and material encountered in the market place.

  • A pool of micro-computers in a local network that run on various operating systems allowing a large number of management and industrial applications.
  • In the industrial department, there are programmable automatons as well as a wide range of electronic equipment enabling students to work on state-of-the art computing techniques used in industry.
  • In the networks and telecommunications option, routers, commutation switches and electronic equipment enabling students to work on high-end interconnection techniques used in the telecom industries.

Skills to acquire

The programs of ESI are made of learning units corresponding to the skills we want our students to develop gradually within an ideal 3 year Curriculum.

Citizen and professional skills

Let's keep in mind student life is not only studying foolishly. The academic institution gives the opportunity to students to develop citizen and professional skills (empathy, reliability and autonomy) in doing such things like:

  • To fulfill in time their administrative duties towards the institution
  • To manage their daily life (health...) contacting assistance services offered by the school
  • To organize their study helped in the right time by teacher's tips and advice taking appropriate initiatives
  • To take part possibly in the student institutional representation to better understand how an organization works, what can be useful for computer scientists

IT skills common to all 3 initial Bachelors

  • To take part in the analyze of an information system (data set and process used by organizations) and collaborate on the implementation of a software application (data set and algorithms automating all or a part of analyzed information system) thinking about potential evolutions.
  • To think about all possible results provided by a software application, test it, secure it and feed it.
  • To communicate in several languages (listening, explaining, writing, making screenshots, checking if the message has been correctly understood)and put in a project participating in its management (structuring, planning, coordinating and tightly managing actions and tasks linked to it, working in a team of computer scientists, in a multidisciplinary and multicultural team).
  • To be able to adapt quickly to a new work environment and its evolution by respecting the existing rules, appreciate their ethical and societal values.
  • To develop self-learning and critical approach towards novelties making the difference between fashionable trend and major long-term breakthrough.
