IT, IOT & Security

Ingénieurs informaticiens généralistes en traitement de l’information

Become a computer engineer specialising in the security of systems and connected objects

Engineer’s degree (diplôme d’ingénieur) with a major in IT, IOT & Security in a French CTI-accredited engineering school

This major trains IT engineers with a solid grounding in security for systems and objects, from their design phase to their integration into the company ecosystem. With a view to tomorrow’s fully connected world, the major positions students as professionals who are entirely capable of rising to the challenges of the future posed by connected services, their longevity and their robustness. The course has been awarded a SecNumedu label by France’s Cybersecurity Agency, ANSSI.


#Majeure Informatique, objets connectés et sécurité

Cybersecurity Software Engineer

The school has fostered a real maker-hacker and DIY culture in its societies and student projects.

Maker-Hacker Culture

Students design and innovate around connected objects, AI and security in the Fab Lab, the DeVinci Innovation Centre, the DaVinci Bot and DigiTeam societies, and various technical associations. For hacker culture aficionados, the DaVinciCode society brings hackers together for challenges, warzones and other CTFs, including the De Vinci Higher Education CTF: DaVinciCTF.

SecNumEdu label

The objective of this label is to provide assurance to students and employers that training in the field of digital security meets a charter and criteria defined by the ANSSI in collaboration with stakeholders and professionals in the field (higher education institutions, manufacturers, etc.).
