Master of Computer Engineering – Program


For more than 25 years, companies have placed their trust in EPITA and its prestigious programs. EPITA now has more than 60 corporate partners offering partnerships and jobs to our students.

One of the major advantages for computer engineers is that they can easily find a professional position anywhere in the world. Whether they choose a career in France or abroad, digital engineers have a wide range of choices on the job market after graduating from engineering school.

EPITA has one of the highest graduate employment rates: 96% in less than one month, with the highest starting salaries from among all engineering schools (the average gross salary is over

€40 000, excluding benefits).

The school’s 7000 graduates continue to move up the professional ladder, taking on key positions in buoyant companies in over 40 countries worldwide.

Our Master’s degree program in Computer Engineering offers three specializations as listed:

  • Global IT Management (GITM)
  • Software Development & Multimedia (SDM)
  • Systems, Networks & Security (SNS)

Harmonization semester

This semester aims at providing students with a solid technical background that acts as a common basis for the international students coming from different educational systems. This semester is common to all three areas of specialization.

Global IT Management (GITM)

The GITM major prepares students to become comprehensive project managers in the IT field. It is a combination of business processes and new technologies with a focus on change management and innovation, taking intercultural approaches into account. The graduates are able to pursue careers in the field of e-leadership and become a sales engineer, auditor, consultant, strategist, or risk management engineer.

Software Development & Multimedia (SDM)

The SDM major trains students to become future Digital Leaders, who can 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 can manage the human factor linked to new uses.

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

Systems, Networks & Security (SNS)

The SNS major teaches students about systems (from design to administration), networks (existing and new generation), security (functional and technical) and organization (governance, management systems…).

Drawing on their knowledge of businesses and fundamental control mechanisms, SNS engineers are prepared to work as chief information security officers (CISO) and know how to take effective cyber-security measures. Thanks to their ability to understand the risks and governance of a business as well as identify areas of improvement linked to infrastructure technologies and new associated services, students are well-prepared to detect and analyze attacks.

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 €1300 and €1700 per month during their internships.
