Initial training under student status


Initial engineering training under student status (FISE) is part of initial training. This training culminates in the title of Engineer in the Computer Science specialty. This engineering degree is recognized by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur

The FISE aims to give students the fundamental, technical and practical knowledge necessary for the activities of a general computer engineer, to develop their ability to conceptualize and solve complex problems, undertake, innovate, lead projects and lead teams in a multicultural and multidisciplinary context.

Schooling over 6 semesters

Schooling takes place over three years full-time. It is divided into six semesters. The courses are organized in a Teaching Unit (EU), consisting of one or more modules, and addressing a specific thematic field.The first two semesters of the training are entirely composed of EUs that constitute the common core of ENSIIE engineering training. They aim to establish a strong theoretical and scientific basis on which students can rely to develop their engineering training and build their projct. Students acquire the fundamental concepts in mathematics and computer science. They are also introduced to economics, management and law.

Each semester of the first two years consists of 8 EU (30 ECTS credits): 6 technical EUs (Computer Science and/or Mathematics), 1 EU economics-management and 1 EU languages and human training.The last semester of teaching consists of 7 UEs (30 ECTS credits): 5 optional technical EUs (Computer Science and/or Mathematics) and 2 EUs around business and human training.

Optional axes

The courses appear from the second year and correspond to the school's areas of excellence. They allow engineering students to build their training according to their interests and professional objectives.5 courses are thus accessible, which give access to 12 masters in bi-curriculum in the 3rd year. Engineering students can also build an à la carte course, by selecting their technical courses.

  • Applied Mathematics
    • Financial Mathematics (Financial)
    • Statistics and Data Science
    • Operations operational research
  • Computer science
    • Software architecture and secure software
    • Security and networks
    • Information Systems
  • Digital Interactions & video games
    • Video games
    • Human-machine interactions
    • Virtual and Augmented Reality
    • Intelligent Systems
  • HPC & big data
    • High performance architecture
    • Cloud computing
    • Calculating
  • Organization of companies
    • Organization and Management
    • Entrepreneuriat

Three internships complete the training by preparing engineering students for their integration into the business world :

  • At the end of the first year, an 8-week internship focused on programming; but it can also be humanitarian
  • At the end of the second year, a 10-week internship focused on analysis and design
  • At the end of the third year, an engineering project is carried out during a 6-month internship

These internships can be carried out either in companies or in a research laboratory both in France and abroad

Combined training and double degrees

In parallel with their training at ENSIIE, students may be required

  •   Spend a semester of study abroad (S3, S4 or S5) in one of the partner institutions
  • Spend twelve months abroad in the 3rd year (S5 and S6) as part of double degrees with partner institutions
  • Take the bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Evry-Val-d'Essonne during their first year
  • Follow the M1 in applied mathematics from Paris-Saclay University during their second year
  • Follow an ENSIIE / Master's engineering bi-curriculum in Mathematics or Computer Science during the third year as part of the  co-operated masters of the school
  • Follow a dual ENSIIE / IMT-Business School engineering course
  • Follow the axis Video Games and Digital Interactions
  • Participate in the  Entrepreneurship Projects challenge
