LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION

The first semester classes are taught in English. Over this period, students acquire sufficient skills in the French language to be able to follow second and subsequent semester lectures together with native speakers. Progressive immersion in the French language and culture, an educational challenge, is one of the special features of the curriculum.

ENVIRONMENT

In the last few decades, companies have accumulated overwhelming amounts of data, be it textual (reports, emails, phone call transcripts, etc.), numeric (sales figures, meteorological data, etc.) or binary (images, audio, sensor data, etc.). Using statistical “data mining” methods, one can detect tendencies, hidden patterns and knowledge nuggets, and use them to make strategic decisions. This process is of crucial importance in all sectors of activity, and in particular for business, science, politics, security, healthcare, etc.

COURSE AIMS

This MSc program is aimed at future experts in the design of high-performance support systems for data mining, knowledge extraction and decision aiding.
This Masters program also offers a gateway to PhD studies.
