The Computer Science international track trains future leaders in the industry and in research who will be in charge of the design and development of IT systems.
It teaches them to master the IT concepts and tools of today and imagine those of the future.
This 2-year program prepares students to anticipate future technological developments by providing them with a strong theoretical foundation and an extensive knowledge of the different concepts and tools used in today's computer systems.
The program can be followed as initial training or as part of a work-study apprenticeship contract, continuing education, lifelong learning or a professional contract.


This rigorous academic program is both theoretical and practical:
  • Students learn to recognize and understand the concepts and basic principles of computer science.
  • They learn to master the links between the different aspects of computer science, and to transpose methods and techniques from one aspect to another as they design, implement and integrate applications.
  • At the end of the program, graduates are able to manage large-scale IT projects taking into account quality standards, and are able to design their architecture and integrate and upgrade them in pre-existing systems.

Throughout the program, students acquire sought-after skills, which allow them to:

  • Expand their scientific and technical knowledge on their own and think critically in order to solve an IT problem.
  • Isolate and decompose a problem in another scientific field.
  • Identify problems specific to computer science.
  • Propose and implement efficient IT problem-solving solutions.
  • Present in written and spoken form the different aspects of an IT solution, from modeling to implementation.
  • Understand and write technical or scientific reports in French and English.
  • Produce documents summarizing each task of an IT project.
  • Take part in teams studying and developing IT solutions.
  • Lead of a work group in charge of performing several tasks.
  • Keep abreast of new technological developments.
  • Critically analyze and compare several solutions for the same problem.



This master is part of the Digital Systems for Humans Graduate school training offer

DS4H offers you the opportunity to enrich your curriculum with a unique catalog of multidisciplinary courses (minors in law, business, entrepreneurship, creative industries, etc.), tutorship (laboratory immersion) and individual or group projects (with INVENT@UCA or the FabLab). By combining these options, over the semesters, you build your à la carte training program according to your personal and professional goals.
You acquire sought-after competencies (technical skills and "soft skills") for your future career in research, higher education, research and development, industry and services, start-ups, etc. Learn more about the DS4H training programs...

The FabLab@UCA is a space open to the public where anyone can have access to all kinds of tools, including machine tools, which can be used to design and fabricate objects. It allows students to carry out multidisciplinary projects in collaboration with the thriving local innovation community (faculty members, researchers, technical staff, companies, non-profits, start-ups, etc.). It is a place to meet others, to create and to collaborate in designing and fabricating unique objects. Read more...


Campus SophiaTech - Site des Lucioles

Computer Science track courses are mainly offered on the SophiaTech campus (Les Lucioles).
The SophiaTech campus is entirely geared towards information and communication technologies. Its prestigious academic institutions (CNRS, I3S, Inria, EURECOM, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines and Polytech Nice Sophia) are located near and working in close connection with the 300 innovative companies of Sophia-Antipolis, the leading European technology park, not far from Cannes, Antibes and Nice.

The program is backed by two leading research laboratories: the I3S laboratory and the Inria Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée Research Center.


Conditions of admission / Conditions of successful application

The Computer Science international track is selective.

  • It is open to students who have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science.
  • Other Bachelor's degrees in scientific fields or degrees equivalent to three years of undergraduate study (BAC+3) are accepted if prerequisites are met (algorithmics and English level B2).
  • Selection is based on the application file, which includes the applicant's grades, a CV and a letter of motivation.
