Augustin talks about his apprenticeship

This work-study program offers students the advantage of gaining professional experience over three years. It provides outstanding complementarity between the school and the company, making it possible to combine theory and practice. With work-study programs, the apprentice works in-company, gaining rewarding hands-on experience in a professional setting and being paid. Their tuition fees are also covered.

Telecom SudParis offers an apprenticeship-based engineering course leading to an engineering degree with a specialization in computer science and  networks awarded by Telecom SudParis of Institut Mines-Telecom.

Accredited by the CTI (Commission des Titres d’Ingénieur), this course is offered in collaboration with the CFA-EVE (Centre de Formation en Apprentissage de l’Enseignement Supérieur en Région Île de France - fr).

Teaching objectives

The skills acquired by graduates of this course are twofold:

  • general set of skills required to work as an engineer;
  • skills specific to the computer science and networks specialization, especially for next-generation computer science and networks. Deploying these networks across the country represents one of the major industrial challenges for France and for companies to remain competitive.

Course overview

Next-generation networks are characterized by the convergence of information technology, computer science and networks. Some of the themes covered in the curriculum include network services and infrastructure, the convergence of voice/data/images/mobility, fiber optics, security and service quality.

This program may change at the request of the course administrators.

Myriam MOUKHLIS (University Technology Diploma, R&T) - 3RD YEAR- CCI

I wanted to work with new technologies and specifically networks. I chose this course because of the school’s reputation and its comprehensive curriculum. Now, I am doing my apprenticeship at CCI de Paris as a Network and Security Engineer. Every day, I work in a variety of areas: security, support, telephony.
