Program

The minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship sums up to a total of 30 ECTS: 24 ECTS in the first year, 6 ECTS in the second year of study. The 24 ECTS comprises a mandatory two weeks summer school organised by the EIT Digital Master school.
The technical major programme is aligned for all possibles entry universities per program, while the second year programme is a specialisation and can differ from exit to exit university in each program.

For a student enrolling in the EIT digital master school at Université Côte d'Azur, as entry student:
  • the entry Data Science program at Université Côte d'Azur is hosted by the 4th year of Polytech Nice Sophia engineering school, and the student is offered to enroll in the EIT Digital track of Sciences Informatique (SI). Once successfully studying in the chosen exit university, the student receives: the engineering degree in SI, the master in computer science/EIT Digital track/Data Science option, and the master degree offered by the exit university.
  • the entry FinTech  program at Université Côte d'Azur is hosted by the 4th year of Polytech Nice Sophia engineering school, in the specific EIT Digital track of Sciences Informatique (SI) department. Once succesfully studying in the chosen exit university, the student receives: the engineering degree in SI, the master in computer science/EIT Digital track/FinTech option, and the master degree offered by the exit university.
  • Besides, if the student is enrolled for the EIT Digital Autonomous Systems program, the entry AUS program at Université Côte d'Azur is hosted by the 4th year of Polytech Nice Sophia engineering school, in the specific EIT Digital in Autonomous Systems of Systèmes Electroniques (ELEC) department. Once succesfully studying in the chosen exit university, the student receives: the engineering degree in ELEC, and the master degree offered by the exit university.
For a student enrolling in the EIT digital master school at Université Côte d'Azur, as exit student:
  • the exit Data Science program at Université Côte d'Azur is operated by the 5th year of Polytech Nice Sophia engineering school, Option "Data Science" (SD), and is exactly the same as the 2nd year of master in Computer Science, EIT Digital track, Data Science option of UCA. Once succesfull, the student receives: the master in computer science/EIT Digital track/Data Science option, and the master degree offered by the entry university.
  • the exit FinTech program at Université Côte d'Azur is partly operated by the 5th year of Polytech Nice Sophia engineering school, Sciences Informatique (SI), Option "Informatique et Mathématiques Appliquées à la Finance et l'Assurance" (IMAFA), and is exactly the same as the 2nd year of master in Computer Science, EIT Digital track, FinTech option of UCA. Once succesfull, the student receives: the master in computer science/EIT Digital track/Fintech option, and the master degree offered by the entry university.

Business sector or job

Given the chosen track, typical jobs are:
  • Data scientist, Data engineer
  • Engineer in autonomous and robotics systems
  • Middle and back office management in finance and insurance domains

Affiliation to the EIT Digital Alumni network enables all graduated students to continue contributing to the EIT Digital ecosystem.
Some Post Master job offers, reserved to former graduated EIT Digital master school students are published.

Some of our former (approx 10 to 20%) Master students continue as PhD students, either in the frame of the EIT Digital Doctoral School, or in an purely academic doctoral school, in Europe and abroad. (Eg UCA, University of Edimburgh, University of Tokyo, ...).

The majority of graduated master students holds a job position in Europe, some in start ups, some other in bigger industries (IBM, Amadeus, Philips, BMW, ...).
