The proximity of companies located in the Nice, Sophia Antipolis and Cannes areas will facilitate professional exchanges, the expression of industrial needs, access to internship offers and the recruitment of future collaborators.

Curriculum organization

The program begins with an intensive refresher period in mathematics and programming, followed by 3 weeks of courses in AI and Data Science, SCRUM methodology, etc.

2 projects are carried out in teams to respond to a real industrial problem encountered by an innovative company in the Aix-Marseille and Nice areas (start-ups, SMEs, Club Top 20 members), on subjects related to AI, connected objects, the web, etc.

A 5-to 6-month internship concludes the program.

DigitalLab program scheme

The program is fully taught in English.

How the projects work

Projects are carried out by teams of 3 to 5 students over several sprints, for a total duration of 8 to 10 weeks.

After the kick-off meeting, the students are in direct and regular contact with their client, under the supervision of a coach. Each Project team benefits from effective coaching to develop both collective intelligence and personal skills.

Projects are concluded with a collective presentation in the presence of the customer and the jury.
