Presentation and objectives

The program of Cybersecurity aims at teaching students knowledge and solid skills in advanced specification, design, development, implementation and maintenance of secure systems.

In particular, students should understand and apply methods and techniques to investigate vulnerabilities of a given system or a solution such as scanning techniques and penetration testing, from theoretical and practical point of view.
In addition, we focus on systems security management and audit. A didactic methodology is applied, based on classes, specialized seminars, conferences, case studies, practical sessions in computer labs, tutorials, projects, and self-learning. Students should participate to some international challenge around at least one of the cyber security domains (Systems, Networks, Telecommunication, Software, Web, and Hardware).

French language classes are part of the program for all international students. As required by the French Commission for Engineering Titles (CTI), students seeking to obtain the Master’s Degree of Engineering must reach a B1 level of French by the end of their programme.

Exchange student from Mauá Institute of Technology (Brazil) - Spring & Fall Semester 2018

As an exchange student at ESME Sudria, I had the chance to follow interesting classes taught by skillful teachers especially in IoT and Smart Cities. When I arrived in France, I did not speak a word of French but thanks to language classes taught at ESME, I am now able to have a basic conversation in French!
Merci l’ESME!
