Software Development & Multimedia (SDM)

The SDM major trains students to become future Digital Leaders, who are able to innovate, suggest new contents, new uses, and new services, based on open source technologies or those of major publishers (Microsoft, Adobe, etc.). In a global context where digital technologies are becoming increasingly strategic, SDM engineers work across all economic sectors as new service architects or leaders of innovative projects. They show technological diligence, strong listening skills and are able to manage the human factor linked to new uses.

At the end students gain knowledge in Back-End, Front-End, Data Basis, mobile applications and video game development.

Advanced Software Development

SEMESTER 2

  • Graphic Design and Tools
  • Game Design 1 & 2
  • Unity Game Engine
  • Advanced Java Programming
  • .NET et C# Programming
  • Mobile Application Development (Android / iOS)

SEMESTER 3

  • Advanced JavaScript
  • Software Security
  • Software Industrialization & QA
  • Advanced Web Development
  • XML Technologies
  • Usability Engineering and Human-machine interactions

As a French, I chose EPITA because, for me, it's a decent school and well recognized by companies, plus, with the goal of going abroad, so that's why you have to validate an international experience to get the diploma. Speaking about international, I'm currently doing my internship at Ericsson iKarlskrona, Sweden, for two reasons: I had a good opportunity (thanks to a contact) and I have yet to validate my international experience. About the SDM specialization, its big advantage is that you will learn a lot of technologies, and their strengths, add that with the project and you will have a good idea of your preferences.

Internship

Our last educational period is organized around a 6-month company internship, culminating in a Master’s thesis presented on-campus in front of the Graduate Committee.

This required internship allows students to discover the latest technologies while gaining valuable experience. Feedback from the internship host companies has been overwhelmingly supportive of our programs.

Students of our Master of Engineering are paid between €1,200 and €1,600 per month during their internships.
