Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity engineer training

Formation Intelligence artificielle et cybersecurité

ESIEE Paris offers an engineering program with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity. The program is accredited by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI).

Delivered in English, the program focuses, during the first year, on fundamental courses in computer science, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity. During the second year, you reinforce your knowledge in the advanced fields of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

Why should I become an Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity engineer?

Innovating in new digital technologies while ensuring the protection of information data is a real challenge that companies have to meet.

As an engineer in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, you can easily find a position in France or abroad in the fields of new digital technologies. In these advanced fields of computer science, companies are looking to recruit qualified, creative and innovative people. After your training, you can also pursue a PhD and become a researcher in computer science.

If you want to be part of tomorrow's digital revolution, become an artificial intelligence and cybersecurity engineer!
