DSC Program

Program for EIT Digital Master 2 DSC track

The DSC track consists of two semesters and allows you to earn 60 ECTS (European Credits Transfer System).

The first semester consists of core and optional courses. In addition, each student must complete a Personal  Research and Development Project in either one of the local partner institutions (CNRS I3S, CNRS LJAD or INRIA), or by our industrial partners (Orange Labs, SAP research labs, Amadeus, ..., or by the Sophia-Antipolis SMEs ecosystem)  for a total of 6 ECTS credits. Subjects are proposed to students during October, so that the project can also start early: approx 1 day per week, plus a four weeks almost full-time  period (between Period 1 and 2; End of february: oral defense, delivery of an intermediate report before Christmas, and one final report at the end) should be allocated to the project development.

Version of 2017-2018
Semester 1, October-February (30 ECTS)

Mandatory courses (6 ECTS)

The list of mandatory courses from the 2016-17 academic period is such that it is as close as possible to the Gestion Multimedia pour les Données Massives (Data Science - Science des Données) track of the Master 2 IFI / Master 2 SSTIM / 5th year of study in Gestion Multimedia pour les Données Massives / SD of the applied mathematics and computer science departments of Polytech Nice-Sophia Antipolis engineering school. Mandatory courses are split in two periods (quarters), but constitutes a single module of 6 ECTS (within which all courses marks are averaged and if it is reaching an overall mark of 10 / 20, then the ECTS are gained).

Innovation and Entrepreunership module (6 ECTS)

Besides, the student must develop a mandatory Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) work of 6 ECTS, as mandated by EIT Digital I&E common specification of masters. This work is coached by the UNS local coordinator in I&E and spans the whole October-February period. The goal is to reuse on-line I&E material from Sakai, common to all EIT Digital masters, and apply this to selected business cases. These business cases are most of the time proposed by the various EIT Digital Action Lines partners. More details here.

Semester 2, March-August (30 ECTS)

Internship

This internship can be done either in our partner research institutions teams at I3S, LJAD, INRIA even if for EIT Digital students, industrial internships are the preferred choice. We provide support and guidance to this aim. Including for outside the Nice - Sophia-Antipolis Telecom valley ecosystem. The evaluation of the internship work encompasses three aspects: work achieved as measured by the internship supervisor, written thesis submitted at the end of August and evaluated by the university supervisor, oral defense organized early September (can happen in visio conference mode) and evaluated by a jury of professors, to which the supervisor is warmly invited to participate.
