Analysis of the program by Campus-Channel

What we noted

EPITA

International Bachelor

Inspired by the concept of traditional scientific preparatory classes, EPITA’s prep classes take a modern approach to computing and information technologies. Over the course of three years, students focus on game design, strategy design and utility programs in group projects, IT theory, and business methods and tools including management, law, marketing and communications. The first two years serve as a preparatory cycle with heavy emphasis on mathematics and engineering sciences. The third year allows students to specialize in one of three tracks focused on science, technology or management. By the end of the first year, students are qualified to take internships in companies.

Duration: 3 years 
Location: Paris

    03:33

    How does an international bachelor at EPITA compare to a bachelor from an Anglo-Saxon system, like in the U.S.?

    05:58

    Are there accreditations for this bachelor that make it recognized globally?
