MASTER IN COMPUTER SCIENCE
Typical course: COMMUNICANT COMPUTER SYSTEMS: NETWORKS, SERVICES AND SECURITY (SICOM)

Goals

To train students in the advanced fields of information and communication technologies, from the architecture of advanced networks (new generation, wireless, embedded...) to emerging applications on these tools/mediums of communication in perpetual evolution (mobility, cloud, security...).

Specificities

The SICOM course is available in initial and continuing education and in work-study programs (apprenticeship or professionalization contracts).

This course is integrated into the Master of Computer Sciencein the same way as the ILSEN (Software Engineering for the Digital Society) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) specializations.

The teaching is carried out by CERI's teacher-researchers, and by external contributors specialized in computer engineering from the academic and private sectors.
