Analysis of the program by Campus-Channel

What we noted

EPITA

Master of Computer Science (MSc)

This program starts with core classes to provide students a deep knowledge of advanced management and engineering science, as well as business exposure. Students then choose one of the four specializations: Information Systems Management; Software Engineering; Computer Security; Data Science and Analytics. In this Information System Management track, students learn about people, technology and organizations. The software Engineering program is more about helping students to apply the principles of engineering to software development. The Computer Security focuses on how to prevent and detect unauthorized use of computers and data. Finally, the Data Science and Analytics aims to combine computer and statistical sciences to efficiently deal with data processing (Big DATA).
