The Master informatique parcours Science Informatique is dedicated to students interested in a career in computer science research. This research-oriented track is supported by IRISA and Inria, which together form the largest computer science laboratory in France.

The Master informatique parcours Science Informatique offers specific teachings distributed across the accredited institutions according to their research competencies. The selected teaching modules are both current and promising research topics, as well as fundamental technological issues, anchoring the training in current themes of both public and private research. They are therefore subject to evolution over the years.

Each student chooses an ordered list of modules upon application. These courses can be organised into 5 domains:

  • Artificial Intelligence, Data, Image
  • Cybersecurity
  • Virtual reality, interaction, robotics
  • Architecture, cloud, and networks
  • Foundations of Computer Science

The programme includes a bibliographic study, training in oral expression techniques that will be put into practice during participation in the master’s colloquium, a series of courses and seminars, as well as work experience within a research team (internship).

To accommodate international students, most courses are taught in English.
