IKSEM (IKS Engineering and Management) master has been created in 2009 as a dual degree in Management of IKS and in Computer Science.

MIKS features

English Medium of instruction: All teaching, course material, course and practical/project work shall be in English.


The National French 'Apprentissage' Style of teaching/learning: Under MIKS students spend alternate periods in the company and academia (cycle of 4 weeks in industry followed by 2 weeks in academia). They work under mentorship of two designated mentors, one each in industry and academics, respectively.Thus there is a continuous cross fertilization between course work and industrial practice.


Earn while you Learn: Each admitted student to MIKS is provided paid contractual employment worth between 1000 and 2000 Euros per month, for one year with a French company. The Centre de Formation par l'Apprentissage, CFA-AFIA, co-ordinates the relationship between the University, the companies and MIKS students. As part of this, it assists students in finding employment and paying for their tuition fees.


An innovative pedagogy: Each class is composed in equal shares of students having a background in ICT and of students having a background in management. These apprentices work and learn together during a year in realistic situations of IKS projects bringing together the IT specialists and all stakeholders of IKS and of IKS projects. The pedagogy which is adopted allows these apprentices to get ready for their future professions in which they cannot excel without a successful alliance between business teams and IT teams. This is henceforth an inescapable condition so that the organizations succeed in their business/IT alignment and IT governance (and corporate governance) in the service of a responsible and sustainable competitivity. The MIKS Master allows to acquire the necessary skills to successfuly build this alliance.


A multi-cultural environment for learning together: In the 2011 batch, 73% of the students have a curriculum from the University, 27% of them were engineers before acceeding to the programme. 36% are not french (8 different nationalities including french). 41% have a previous experience in the industry as apprenticeship before joining us.


An international seminar: In 2011 and 2012, students visited the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (Spain). The seminar included a 4-day academic programme and a day for industrail and cultural discovery. In 2013, students participated to the IEEE International RCIS (Research Challenges in Information Science) Conference at Sorbonne. 2015 batch students participated to the same conference in Athens at the Harokopio University.
