An IT expert

Epitech is the school of innovation and IT expertise that, in three years of bachelor’s degree, transforms its students into 360-degree professionals experienced task completion and able to adapt to the challenges and demands of business. We use projects as a teaching method. By the end of their studies, students will have completed a total of 39 projects and 72 mini-projects.

Based on a kickoff, a bootstrap, follow-ups, pitches and keynotes, the project timeline at Epitech is designed to be as close as possible to a business project with the watchwords of agility and rigor. This is an opportunity for our students to learn to work in a way that empowers them while benefiting from supervision at each stage of their progress

The 1st year of the course is devoted to learning about the methodological bases of the school’s work, immersion in the Epitech spirit and acquiring the minimum technical bases. Learners start their year with the Pool, a real baptism of fire that plunges them into 5 intensive weeks of work in the heart of computer codes. The exercises are to be given every day, the practical work sessions are multiplying supervised by the school’s teaching teams, monitoring is continuous. At the end of it, students gain autonomy and learn to work on larger group projects such as the famous bistromatic (infinite number calculator).
