Thanks to the many SUPINFO International University campuses throughout the world, Sarah who is currently in her third year of an IT engineering course at the SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology in Montreal, Canada, began her studies at SUPINFO Paris and spent her second year in London. “To be able to choose each year the country in which you want to study is a real plus. The programme is the same, only the teaching language changes. Next year I want to go to the SUPINFO campus in San Francisco because it’s such a unique opportunity to be able to take advantage of affordable studies in the United States! For my ﬁnal year it will be either Italy or China.”
Before the end of her course Sarah can change her mind and choose from the other SUPINFO International University campuses all over the world *. The IT courses at SUPINFO International University are offered progressively throughout the worldwide campuses by SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology.

University are more than just dedicated scientists equipped with real knowledge; they also possess knowhow, interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate. This enables them to become real architects capable of designing, innovating and taking the wider view necessary to integrate and manage technology in the best interests of their company.
The IT sector in France recruits over half of all newly-qualiďŹ ed science graduates. IT engineers play a key role in todayâ€™s modern businesses, not only involved in designing high-tech information processing solutions but also entrusted with a wide range of tasks ranging from the design and organisation of entire IT departments, production control, technology architecture and integration, selling products and services, to team management.

A survey of the positions held by over 5,000 ESI alumni shows that our engineers, most of whom are offered employment even before graduation, enjoy a high level of mobility and a rich variety of career opportunities in companies around the world. They progress naturally and rapidly through the ranks of management from project manager to CEO level, by way of positions such as information systems manager, production manager, or even marketing and sales or human resources manager. Others opt to start up and run their own business. Because the school has fully taken on board the demands of todayâ€™s market, SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology graduates enjoy enviable opportunities: there is virtually no corporate function to which they cannot realistically aspire.
Yet two thirds of ďŹ rms in the sector complain of skills shortages. â€œWe are ďŹ ghting a real battle for talent,â€? explains one industry professional. This situation has been brought about by the accelerating pace of investment in technology, the globalisation of the economy, and an imminent wave of departures, for which little preparation has been made, as the baby-boomer generation hits retirement age. Companies expect their engineers to be not just information system specialists, with all the advanced scientiďŹ c and technical knowledge that entails, but also to have full command of integration and management techniques. SUPINFO has therefore avoided the trap of too narrow a focus on purely technical training in computer science, which limits graduate access to the wider worlds of IT and management.

Todayâ€™s companies are well aware that IT engineers - a profession which, contrary to popular belief, is not controlled or regulated by any professional body or commission either in France or in most other parts of the world - are no longer merely theorists possessed of scientiďŹ c knowledge recognised in France by the qualiďŹ cation and title of â€œengineerâ€?. Nor are they simply â€œsuper-techniciansâ€? or â€œexpertsâ€? trained primarily to write code and software. In this highly speciďŹ c area of ICT, engineers are often seen as too generalist, while the supertechnicians are unfortunately being priced out of the market by low-cost offshore competencies based in Asia or Eastern Europe. Skilled IT engineers of the kind trained by the ESI (Ecole SupĂŠrieure dâ€™Informatique) of SUPINFO International

Naturally enough, the core business of the majority of the companies hiring SUPINFO graduates is IT. First and foremost are the computer manufacturers (IBM, HP, Sun, etc.) and software developers (Microsoft, Oracle, etc.). Then come the software engineering groups such as CapGemini, Sopra, Altran, Atos or EDS, whose role is to deﬁne, implement, integrate, deploy and maintain information systems for their corporate clients. Large numbers of IT engineers are also employed by user companies, in the IT departments of SMBs, major international groups or government agencies. These businesses cover every sector of activity: banking, ﬁnance, insurance, local authorities, government ministries, the defence industry, aircraft manufacturing, the oil and gas industry, telecoms operators, the car industry, the rail industry, retailing, pharmaceutical companies, tourism, environment, humanities, all sectors of scientiﬁc research…

´ TK8:5.3+4JSLNSJJWX KNSIJRUQT^RJSYTSLWFIZFYNTSµ 100% of SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology engineers ﬁnd employment upon graduating. This remarkable record is due to the fact that, unlike many of the non-specialist engineering schools in France, which still conform to the traditional educational pattern even after the foundation cycle (with overwhelming emphasis on fundamental theoretical subjects like mathematics and physics), ESI has a clear understanding of what its sector requires. SUPINFO provides far more than a simple specialisation in computer science in the later stages of its programme: instead, the school takes young people with a passionate interest in computing and trains them, in France and around the world, in an international Master of Science programme that produces graduates who are immediately operational for their employer, not only as highly-skilled technicians but also with exceptional managerial skills. Just the kind of graduates employers are looking for, in fact.

in the school’s teaching laboratories are much appreciated by the other students as providing invaluable help, available as needed, in gaining a better understanding of certain concepts, a better grasp of certain techniques. These student teaching assistants are recognised and valued by companies, and are sent to SUPINFO schools in Europe, Asia, Africa and America to present their work. Every year they are awarded international distinctions and the most successful may win scholarships.
SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology, is the new name given to the Ecole Supérieure d’Informatique de Paris, “ESI”, an establishment founded in 1965 and accredited by the French state by decree of 10 January 1972. Today the school forms part of SUPINFO International University composed of a vast international network of campuses offering in France and worldwide initial and professional training in numerous ﬁelds. Initially French and thus forming the basis of SUPINFO International University, the IT school has gone global and provides teaching dedicated to information technology at most of the SUPINFO International University campuses. It has become the leading Computer Science school in France in terms of both student rolls and national coverage, with 25 campuses across France and the French overseas departments. SUPINFO is one of the few graduate schools where computer science features in the core curriculum from the very ﬁrst year of studies. As beﬁts a specialist school in all aspects of computer science, the programme includes all the specialities that make up the world of corporate IT: software engineering, systems and networks, artiﬁcial intelligence, data analysis, Internet and intranet technologies, business intelligence, ERP and multimedia. A survey carried out in 2007 in France by TNS Sofres found that SUPINFO also has an excellent reputation with companies employing over 50 people, topping the list in terms of spontaneous and assisted awareness.

Eric BOUSTOULLER CEO of Microsoft France and Vice President of Microsoft International: “We have had a strong, strategic partnership with SUPINFO for over 5 years.The partnership operates at the level of education and teaching, naturally, but also goes much further than this. SUPINFO has become one of the hubs, the best in France, in fact, when it comes to Microsoft technology. It has the best labs, engineers who are probably currently the most skilled in our technology and some of the most employable on the market. They are much sought after by companies at every level, from major corporations to mid-sized companies but also by service companies who regularly ask us to provide both interns and engineers. If you want to know anything about our technology, our solutions now and in the future, all you have to do is visit the SUPINFO websites.” Dominique van DETH Head of Education programmes Oracle France: “With SUPINFO, we share the values of knowledge sharing, team spirit and solidarity. Both its professionalism and highly visible presence in France and overseas, make SUPINFO an ideal partner in the training of Oracle specialists who can adapt to change within companies.” Jane LEWIS Area Academy Manager, Cisco UK: “SUPINFO is currently our no. 1 partner in higher education in Europe with all their students trained in our technology and the highest rate of success in Cisco certiﬁcation examinations every year. The excellence of their training is on a par with their rapidity in responding to market needs in real time: SUPINFO was swift to understand the urgent need for professionals trained in security and wireless networks and is delivering ﬁrst-class training in these cutting-edge technologies.”
Richard RAMOS Education & Research Business Manager, Apple Europe: “I think the curriculum offered by SUPINFO is truly ahead of its time.” Gilles LESAGE Education & Research Manager, IBM France: “We sell technology, but SUPINFO will be selling us the talents we will need to manage or staff our company in the future.” Eric MAHÉ Head of new technologies, Sun France: “When Sun drew up the list of priority schools for the launch of the Campus Ambassador programme in France, SUPINFO was at the top of the list of all national establishments.” Hervé COUTURIER Executive VP Product Group, Business Objects, an SAP Company “We are delighted to have established a partnership with SUPINFO. The creation of a Business Intelligence module and in particular familiarisation with our products will enable SUPINFO students to understand an IT area which is rarely taught to engineers. It is also an excellent way for Business Objects to train in its technologies a great number of engineers at a very early stage and to attract them to its development centres.”

Faculty and alumni alike are all strongly attached to the values espoused by ESI: team spirit, solidarity, knowledgesharing, diversity of ideas, tolerance, respect for differences of all kinds, respect for all religions, entrepreneurial spirit, shared effort and a constant willingness to question received ideas. Throughout their studies, thanks to the educational resources and tools provided and to the activities associated with the life of the school, SUPINFO students develop their character, gain in conﬁdence and reveal their potential. There are plenty of opportunities, many organised by the students themselves, for them to do so: presenting technology seminars, SUPINFO Winter Night, Christmas Brunch, Chinese New Year, skiing trips, induction seminar, Music Festival, SUPINFO Spring Break and more. The school not only allows and encourages students to give full rein to their enthusiasm for the practical applications of the IT subjects they study, it also allows any SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology engineering student to spend up to two days a week as a part-time intern with a company, in addition to the required summer internship at the end of the academic
year. This offers students an excellent opportunity to combine hands-on experience with the pursuit of their educational goals,, as well as helping to ﬁnance their studies: summer and part-time internships are generally well paid.

In a human working environment based on knowledge-sharing, in contrast to the “entrance exam mentality” or weeks of intensive cramming,, even in their ﬁrst foundation year SUPINFO engineering students follow a programme that includes a wide variety of IT subjects (systems, networks, databases). Since all the specialised subjects are naturally incorporated into the curriculum, there are no more difﬁcult either-or choices to be made at later stages, and students are certain of being able to adapt rapidly and readily to market needs, whatever their options. This stress-free approach frees students to concentrate on their studies and work towards their ﬁrst company internship on a basis of sound technical knowledge.

may spend one day per week working in a company rising to 2 days per week from the third year (Bachelor 3, Master 1 and 2). These part-time internships are beneďŹ cial to the company not only because of the pace of work imposed but also from the point of view of continuity of projects undertaken. The academic year does not necessarily ďŹ t neatly into the pattern of the business year: our students spend 3-month internships in companies during the summer, but the question remains of how to accelerate studentsâ€™ assimilation of knowledge throughout the rest of the year? With SUPINFO companies can beneďŹ t from the skills input of students throughout the academic year for up to 2 days a week from the third year of study. In the summer, these same students may well return to embark on their 3-month full-time internship. BeneďŹ ts of a 2 days per week part-time internship: Removing the seasonal factor associated with internships: companies can call on the skills of SUPINFO students at any time. Removing the time constraints associated with internships: if an internship needs to be extended beyond the duration initially scheduled, the company simply enters into a partnership with the school whereby the intern continues with the assignment over the following academic year. The student doing a part-time internship within a company retains the status of intern, for maximum ďŹ‚exibility.
These part-time internships provide a source of funds much appreciated by students of SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology! The content of the assignment undertaken by the student engineer is carefully assessed by the school and the partner company. In many cases, projects pursued in the school are rounded out by concrete projects within the partner company. At the end of the 5th year, this initiative coupled with the ďŹ nal internship offers a new and effective pre-recruitment solution for both student and potential employer. Finding an internship is excellent practice for future job searches, and students can do their own search using the resources of the school which announces details of internship offers regularly received or on the employment fora organised simultaneously on every SUPINFO International University campus.

In keeping with the school’s avantgarde mentality, SUPINFO Institute off Information Technology is actively opposed to hardware and software obsolescence.. Its installed IT base is designed to replicate the hybrid environments generally found in most businesses, and is replaced regularly to keep pace with technical advances. Facilities consist of several multimedia classrooms and practical laboratories with an array of servers - Sun, HP, Apple,, AS400, IBM, HP and Dell – and offer students unrestricted access even outside normal school hours.
All hardware is connected to the school’s network via Cisco high-speed switches and routers, providing maximum bandwidth forr Internet access or downloads (VPN access from the student’s home is also available).. Permanent links ensure that SUPINFO International University students in other schools around the world are able to work on the same resources and under the same conditions as students in France. Students complete all their projects in English from the ﬁrst year upwards and are thus able to work with counterparts in other countries – an excellent way of learning how w to manage international teams distributed around the world.

working under the supervision of the Academic Department. These particularly dynamic, enthusiastic individuals possess strong technical and general skills and are capable of great rigour and professionalism. After spending several years as SIS assistants over the course of their studies, they will have acquired a thorough command of the administration of hybrid systems and networks as well as considerable experience in the organisation of an IT department. An array of over 100 servers ensures that information is constantly circulated to all student workstations, with thousands of Gb of data being transmitted at very high speeds over an ultra-modern network.
´4SJXYZIJSYTSJQFUYTUµTKKJW Several years ago, SUPINFO reached an agreement with IBMLenovo and Apple to enable every SUPINFO student to buy a WiFi-enabled Lenovo Thinkpad or Apple laptop at extremely preferential rates.
“The IBM Personal Computer division, now Lenovo, has engaged in many years of research in this ﬁeld, with particular emphasis on its own training needs. We are ﬁrmly committed to playing a leading role in this information revolution alongside SUPINFO, especially because in the school’s case IT is not just a working tool but also a tool for research. We think that providing SUPINFO students with their own laptop gives them a real advantage in their studies, the kind of advantage generally only provided by leading business schools and the top American universities.”
By SUPINFO standards, too many computer science courses still rely on traditional teaching methods: lectures, large group sessions, ex cathedra presentations.Yet the population they are addressing is more open than most to the use of modern teaching methods, and the course content is particularly well suited to such methods. E-learning, vast quantities of technical documentation readily available on workstations, a wide choice of software and programming tools, educational sites accessed via the school intranet, advanced search engines, multimedia video, sound and visual demonstration classes permanently accessible – at SUPINFO, all these technologies are now an integral part of the teaching process. Added to these is the intensive use of electronic messaging (e-mail and instant messaging) to maintain the necessary contact with professors, tutors or teaching assistants. The practice of publishing work done in the laboratories on the school’s intranet site also helps the dissemination and sharing of knowledge. All this is the result of team work that contributes to the school spirit. All courses are based on video projection, so all classrooms are equipped with a multimedia projection system linked to the school’s IT network. In addition, live demonstrations, examples, documents, exercises and practical work are all available on the school network to create a knowledge base available to students 24 hours a day.

As a result of the partnership with the school, we were invited by Apple Computer to the WWDC, the Worldwide Developers Conference held in San Francisco. Rounding off our ﬁrst year in engineering on such a high note meant we were ﬁred up and ready to go at the start of the next academic year, with lots of ideas for the partnership.”
Microsoft is the world leader in PC software. The company currently develops, markets and supports an extensive range of products and services: operating systems for workstations or servers (Windows Vista or Windows Server), business server systems (Microsoft Exchange and the .Net platform). Their popularity with users has made most of these tools de facto industry standards.
“The Microsoft Technologies SUPINFO Laboratory website, www.labo-microsoft.com, has become the top French Internet site on our technology, with over 2 million pages read a month.”
Laurent ELLERBACH Head of Relations with Higher Education in IT Microsoft Business Education Division
The Microsoft student training and certiﬁcation programme at SUPINFO is based on an agreement between the Ecole Supérieure d’Informatique and the Microsoft Corporation. It offers engineering cycle students further technical and practical training in Microsoft technologies. The school also prepares students for MCP (Microsoft Certiﬁed Professional) certiﬁcation and for the examination sessions. These certiﬁcations are widely recognised and much sought after by IT professionals. In conjunction with the Linux Technologies SUPINFO Laboratory, SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology has entered into a global agreement with Novell to make SUSE Linux a certiﬁcation platform for all SUPINFO students.
Matthieu DUCROS, Vincent LE NORMAND BERNIER SUPINFO, promotion 2005
“We are honoured to have signed up to an agreement of this kind. SUPINFO has an excellent reputation for offering an international curriculum for its French students around the world, and this is also very well perceived by our customers who will enjoy access to talented professionals certiﬁed on Linux by Novell and trained on the most exhaustive Linux platform on the market today.”
With the Linux Technologies SUPINFO Laboratory, SUPINFO underscores its commitment to diversity in its operating system training and its ongoing interest in the ﬁeld of open source software. SUPINFO and Mandriva have joined forces to create a professional certiﬁcation programme in Mandriva Linux distribution and GNU/Linux technologies. This certiﬁcation will be available worldwide, enabling any students who so wish to gain recognition for technical skills geared to companies’ increasing need for Linux skills. MCU (Mandriva Certiﬁcation for advanced Users), previously open only to professionals, is now available to SUPINFO students as a means of training engineers to remain at the forefront of technological advances. It will be taught at SUPINFO by the Linux Technologies SUPINFO Laboratory instructors, and will also be available to professionals as part of ongoing vocational training.
Volker SMID President, General Manager, Novell
Under the terms of this partnership, over 10,000 SUPINFO students will be trained on SUSE Linux Enterprise between 2008 and 2013. The SUSE Linux Enterprise course will also become part of SUPINFO’s academic curriculum, and all students at the school will take the practical exam to qualify for Certiﬁed Linux Professional certiﬁcation.

“We realised that there was a shortage of skills in network technologies, and SUPINFO is, of course, one of the top schools for network technology training. The Cisco Lab at SUPINFO is a showcase for us. SUPINFO is our leading partner in France, both in terms of the number of students trained in our technologies and of success rates for our professional certiﬁcation examinations.”
8TZSIUWJUFWFYNTSKTWRFWPJY WJVZNWJRJSYX As the company’s public communication campaign points out, “Most of the data circulating on the Internet today is routed by Cisco”. A leader in high-level technologies and network hardware, Cisco has become the key player in the world of telecommunications and digital information networks The hardware manufacturer is playing an increasingly important role in the interconnection of local area networks (LANS) and wide area networks (WANs) for both major multinationals and SMBs, mainly by designing common network components (hubs, switches, bridges, routers, etc.). In France, SUPINFO has entered into a CNAP (Cisco Networking Academy Program) partnership with Cisco under which SUPINFO has become Cisco Regional Academy. As part of a speciﬁc, specially designed programme, students are taught a four-part network course, most of which is valid for both Cisco and non-Cisco hardware. The resulting CCNA (Cisco Certiﬁed Network Associate) ofﬁcial certiﬁcation is widely appreciated by companies.

8YWTSLUFWYSJWXMNUX\NYM HJWYNKNHFYNTSJ]FRNSFYNTS JSYW^KJJXNSHQZIJINS YZNYNTSKJJX SUPINFO’s strategy of forming educational partnerships leading to professional certiﬁcation creates real opportunities for young graduates. Through these partnerships, the school acquires access to tools and resources hitherto available exclusively to IT training professionals. Expensive hardware and software is unstintingly made available to students, along with training programmes and support from faculty members. A wide range of documentation and top quality teaching material is available to ensure a perfect grasp of the technology being taught (DVD, CD-ROM, videos, multimedia course material, electronic tests). Independent, ofﬁcial certiﬁcation examinations set an international seal on competencies that can then be exported to all sorts of companies. Such certiﬁcations are much appreciated by employers as a guarantee that they are hiring an engineer who is truly fully operational in the required technologies. Certiﬁcations also open the door to better-paid internships and jobs, and entitle holders to free listing in an international directory of certiﬁed engineers that is sent out to companies around the world as a recruiting aid. SUPINFO students may sit all their certiﬁcation examinations at the school, which is a recognised international examination center approved by NCS Pearson VUE (Virtual University Enterprises) and Prometric.
Today the Cisco Technologies Laboratory set up by the school regularly publishes articles that are very well received in the education world and among telecoms and network professionals.The www.labo-cisco.com website featuring the Cisco Lab Training Engine is also a useful tool in preparing for the CCNA and CCNP certiﬁcation examinations.

8UTWYUFWYNJXOTGXHMFQQJSLJX FQQMJQUNSLYTIJ[JQTUHMFWFHYJW The SUPINFO Community (SCO) consists of a number of departments responsible for organising campus life, special Community events and sports. All of these departments are managed by students, and their aim is to enliven life on the various national and international campuses by organising a range of leisure and sports activities for students both on and off campus.
Each SUPINFO school has a cheerful relaxation area featuring table tennis, billiards and table football and even, at certain locations, a ﬁtness center.
SUPINFO Family is a home IT tutoring and assistance service provided by SUPINFO, the leading computer science school in France. The service is aimed at young people, adults and seniors – all the family, in fact. Because each year SUPINFO attracts an increasing number of engineering students across France, it seemed logical to make their assistance generally available by means of SUPINFO Family, a scheme requiring no subscription or sign-up fees. The scheme is manned for the most part by student engineers trained and certiﬁed by SUPINFO who can be called out by individuals to troubleshoot errors, provide assistance or advice or give lessons in the everyday use of a Mac or PC. SUPINFO student engineers are paid for their services, and can earn over 2,000 € a year for just half a day’s work a week. SUPINFO Family also offers personalised individual tuition courses for children, students, adults or seniors to help them acquire basic computer skills (Internet access and searches, using e-mail, chat-rooms, using word processing or spreadsheets, workstation and ﬁle management, photos, music, anti-virus protection, burning CDs or DVDs).These courses lead to certiﬁcation and skills certiﬁcates awarded by SUPINFO.
The Professional Services department of SUPINFO (PSO) is part of the SUPINFO Business Network (SBN), and serves both an economic and an educational purpose. Its ﬁelds of activity are designed to meet business needs and SUPINFO’s educational requirements: software engineering, multimedia, systems and networks, etc. SBN/PSO provides opportunities for students to engage in IT projects. In the course of these assignments, students come into contact with companies preparatory to entering the professional world. Some students earn considerable sums through SBN/PSO projects over the course of their studies. BUSINESS NETWORK

The ďŹ rst step is to become a â€œDiscovery Memberâ€? of SUPINFO International University. Admissions are done exclusively online at:
Every student enrolled at SUPINFO International University may request admission to the IT school SUPINFO Institute of Information Technology. This takes place in two stages: â€˘ Once an application has been accepted by the admissions committee (all admissions are now based on academic records with no qualifying examination but are conditional upon obtaining a Baccalaureat, DUT, BTS or equivalent), preenrolment enables students to reserve a place at the SUPINFO school of their choice and to determine how the tuition fees are to be paid. Pre-enrolment is effective upon the return of a pre-enrolment form accompanied by an initial payment of 1,000 â‚Ź. â€˘ Final enrolment is then reserved for candidates whose applications have been accepted and who are pre-enrolled; at this stage, these candidates may enrol directly. Candidates whose application is accepted subject to obtaining a qualifying examination (Baccalaureat, DUT, BTS or equivalent) and who are pre-enrolled will have their place kept open up to 15 July (ďŹ nal date). Candidates should notify SUPINFO within a maximum of two weeks of receiving their results. If successful, they may then complete ďŹ nal enrolment. Candidates who are unsuccessful are not eligible for admission to SUPINFO and their initial payment will be reimbursed in full. Final enrolment is effective on submission of the enrolment form and payment of the ďŹ rst instalment of tuition fees, depending on the method of payment chosen: - payment in full: 3,990 â‚Ź, i.e. the total annual tuition fee of 4,990 â‚Ź less the initial payment of 1,000 â‚Ź, - payment in instalments: an additional charge of 200 â‚Ź is applied, i.e. 1,000 â‚Ź on pre-enrolment, 2,000 â‚Ź on ďŹ nal enrolment, and a ďŹ nal instalment of 2,190 â‚Ź to be made during the academic year.
http://enrolment.supinfo.com As a â€œDiscovery Memberâ€? you will have free access to our resources and courses and you can submit an application form for our certiďŹ cations and diplomas. Once you have chosen your preferred campus, your form will be submitted in a few clicks as the whole procedure is done online. After your documents have been checked, your application will be forwarded to the ESI Admissions Board which meets once a week each year from early November. If youâ€™re application Is accepted you will be notiďŹ ed by post and by e-mail and you may choose any campus in France or worldwide for your preenrolment. Tuition fees are generally 4,990 â‚Ź per annum regardless of the year of study. The non-obligatory specialisation option at the end of the course (M2) is an additional 4,990 â‚Ź but this may vary from campus to campus in different countries according to the cost of living. The fees should not prevent deserving students from pursuing their education, however, and a number of ďŹ nancing solutions exist: bank loans, paid internships, internal merit-based scholarships, partnership agreements with SUPINFO-Entreprises and, subject to certain conditions, regional or departmental scholarships or honour loans.
The school is accredited by the French state and is therefore authorised to enrol students in receipt of higher education scholarships.

As well as being the fourth largest town in France, an international crossroad and a place of economic dynamism, Lille is also the “Town of Art and History” winning the title of European Capital of Culture in 2004. Since then it has become a popular tourist destination because of its welcoming lifestyle, deeply rooted heritage and culture.
Today Lille is a european crossroad and cultural capital but the industrial crisis which took place in the seventies had a profound effect on the town in the eighties. All sectors of activity were hit beginning with the textile industry. Unemployment went from 3% in 1975 to 13% in 1990. Lille began a period of reinvention based on the development of the tertiary sector. A town of factories and workshops was replaced by one of ofﬁces and services and in many ways rediscovered its medieval
roots as a merchant town. The development of the high speed train line between Lille and Paris in 1993, the creation of the new Euralille area and the arrival of Eurostar in 1994 all meant that the town entered the third millennium with conﬁdence.
The school’s prime location allows its students to ﬂourish in the ideal setting of the “Capital of the North”. They are particularly appreciated by the companies who take them on as interns such as the Sopra Group, the Crédit du Nord bank, Experian, SNCF, Castorama, Les 3 Suisses, Capgemini, Ajilon IT, Arcelor-Mittal, La Banque Postale, Lille Local Education Authority, Lille Institute for Company Administration, the Urban Community of Lille, etc.

With 826,700 inhabitants, Marseille is the second largest town in France. It is also the largest French Mediterranean port. Thanks to the high speed train service Paris is only 3 hours away. On an economic level, Marseille is developing. Euroméditerranée is a wide scale urban renovation project within the centre of Marseille, which was able to attract in a very
short time the largest international business, ﬁnancial, institutional and communication companies. Lastly, one cannot talk about Marseille without evoking the natural elements which make it such a fabulous city: Marseilles is bordered by the Mediterranean in the west, enclosed by the Estaque mountains to the north, and the Etoile and Garlaban peaks in the east. To the south is the Massif des Calanques, which stretches for 20 km and contains a preservation area with great coastal hiking opportunities.
The SUPINFO Marseille campus opened its doors on a sunny November day in 2007. Its prime location in the Euroméditerranée business district between the town and the port means our students are in the heart of an evolving town while beneﬁting from a privileged professional framework. The school is surrounded by over 750 companies and SUPINFO students regularly have the opportunity of carrying out worthwhile internships within companies such as Dassault Aviation, Eurocopter, the General Delegation for Armament, Gemalto, GIE ARPEGE-Group, Experian-Prologia, SQLi, SII, etc.

Despite suffering destruction on more than one occasion, the city has retained an Architectural Heritage of the ďŹ rst order. The town centre and in particular the Plumereau district, are a reminder of a time when the kings of France resided in Tours or the surrounding region. Plumereau square, â€œPlumeâ€? to the initiated, is the cityâ€™s nerve centre. This is why it attracts tourists and students alike. In November 2000, the Loire Valley was added to the UNESCO list of world heritage of humanity. Were you aware that it is in this area that the purest French is spoken?

Troyes Urban Community, Devanlay Lacoste, Cristallin, Century 21, Darty, Troyes Habitat, EDF, ESC Troyes, Troyes Town Hall, Soufﬂet Group, Boulanger, Eutech, Cristal Union, Eppe Group, La Poste, CNAM… all have called on SUPINFO students. Even if SUPINFO is primarily a place of education, the school is also for living. Whenever they wish, students can organize various evening activities: network games, birthday parties or themed evenings. They are also free to organize external SUPINFO evenings or outings, to eat in a restaurant, or to do a few laps of the go-kart circuit. Every Thursday is student evening at the many establishments of the town centre. Each year the Town of Troyes and the Maison des Etudiants Troyens organize “the Keys of Troyes”, an evening during which the city welcomes students and introduces them to its various facets, from the cultural to sporting or festive, etc.
Troyes is par excellence a city to be discovered on foot, as the mood and curiosity take you. While strolling around its historical heart, affectionately known as the “champagne cork” by those that live here because of its outline seen from a plane, those passionate about historical towns will be surprised and enchanted: Gothic churches illuminated by magniﬁcent stained glass windows, houses with different coloured wooden panelling, Renaissance mansions, industrial heritage rehabilitated… all epochs are represented. But Troyes is also, a few minutes from the middle of town, the greatest centre of factory outlets and trade in Europe, of prestigious and original museums, of rapidly expanding universities, of small reasonably priced restaurants where you can taste little known champagnes … A lively city in which it is good to live all year round! SUPINFO is particularly well integrated into the economic fabric of the city: the

Today Marrakech is the fourth main town in Morocco after Casablanca, Rabat and Fez. The town is divided into two distinct parts: the Medina or old town (enclosed by 10 kilometres of walls) and the new town whose main areas are GuĂŠliz and Hivernage. GuĂŠliz is now the commercial centre of town. It was created by the French during the Protectorate. In Hivernage there are many hotel complexes. For a few years the town has been spreading particularly on the western edges with the creation of new residential areas in Targa or the extension of Avenue Mohammed VI. As eternal as the snows on the loftiest summits, as imposing as the Atlas mountains themselves, as rooted in history as palm trees in the ground, Marrakech brings the ďŹ nal touch to a picture of indescribable beauty.

Their carts ďŹ lled with oranges and roasted nuts, women come from the foothills of the Atlas mountains to sell their wares, storytellers, musicians, dancers, public letter-writers under their black umbrellas, fortune-tellers, sellers of potions, healers, apothecaries all blend to form an arresting spectacle. Then as night falls the wandering entertainers give way to the food sellers. The acetylene lamps come on one by one.

The campus is right next to the famous Piazza with its street musicians and performers who play for the thousands of tourists who pass by every day. As the name suggests, Covent Garden was a convent in the Middle Ages where the nuns grew fruits and vegetables.

Henrietta Street was named in honour of the French wife of King Charles I, who was unfortunately beheaded in 1649.

Always at the forefront of progress and ever alert for opportunities to add new technologies to its programme, SUPINFO offers a curriculum encompassing all the specialised IT subjects that SUPINFO engineers need to acquire, master and update as time goes by. The curriculum is approved by an Improvement Committee consisting of faculty members and key players in the IT industry but also of representatives from the French Ministry for Education and from leading businesses. Given the rapid pace of changes in technology and their impact on teaching content, the curriculum is regularly reviewed and updated in the light of advances in research and of changing market requirements. SUPINFO operates a European and international programme of exchanges and partnerships, and has adopted the European Credit Transfer System, ECTS. The system is part of the European Community’s SOCRATES-ERASMUS programme for higher education. ECTS enables SUPINFO to extend its European and international reach by ensuring transparency in its teaching programme and facilitating mobility for students, both French and non-French.
