Artificial intelligence and cybersecurity

The artificial intelligence and cybersecurity course, taught entirely in english, aims to train future engineers in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity

The Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity (AIC) programme is taught entirely in English and aims to train computer engineers with a specialisation in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

The course faculty are members of such research organisations as the CNRS and INRIA and lead the course with industrial contributors.

2 years

100 % in english

Master's level (5 years of higher) 

  • 1st year

    The programme focuses on fundamental knowledge in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

    90 hours of teaching time are devoted to artificial intelligence and cyber security. Students have another 90 hours of lessons for further study in one of two areas (AI and/or cybersecurity) or to explore other fields of computer science.

  • 2nd year

    Students strengthen their knowledge in the advanced fields of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity through courses focusing on recent applications of AI and cybersecurity in computer science, the use of AI techniques in cybersecurity and the safety and security of AI-enabled applications.

At the end of each year, students must complete a development or research internship in a company or research laboratory.

How is the programme structured?

At the end of the first year of the engineering cycle, students choose their field of study. The course of study is spread over two years with compulsory and optional scientific and technical courses, management courses and modern languages.

Programme - 2nd year of the engineering cycle

The courses take place over two semesters, each one subdivided into two periods. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. The second semester is made up of one teaching period and an internship period of at least 12 weeks. From January to April, students must work in teams on multidisciplinary projects proposed by industrial partners, laboratories or ESIEE Paris teachers.  All students may take optional modern language 2 courses.
