The program is built on interdisciplinarity, collaborative projects and challenge-based pedagogy and is coupled with the different “labs” of the CRI that support students projects and courses (Makerlab, Gamelab, VR Lab, Mobile lab, MOOC Factory, etc.). Internships have also an important place in the program. Finally, students are also free to engage in various collaborative projects conducted in the “labs” of CRI and to launch their own projects. Their involvement is valorized in the curriculum.

You need to validate at least 5 courses, which means to have a final grade equal or larger than 10/20. Grades will be based on your attendance (courses and conferences), oral participation in classes, quality of your homework and success to the final evaluation. It goes without saying that we do expect you to follow all courses and pass all exams. For your final grades, only the 5 best ones will be taken into account.

Master 1 – Semester 2

The second semester focuses on practical work. You have to spend at least 5 months in a research lab, in a school, in a company, in an organization… You will also have some mandatory events and courses at the CRI.  

UE2.1 Seminars (workshops and Master classes)
UE2.2 Internship in a research lab or in a company

Master 2 – Semester 3

The second year mainly consists in 9 months of internships (usually two internships, each with a duration of 5 months) and mandatory courses at CRI. The courses consists in 5 weeks of workshop (one week each 2 months) and one Friday during the months with no workshop. Some courses will be recurrent and some others will be intensive sessions. Apart from courses, the students are also required to participate in the monthly Master classes which usually take place on the evenings (18-21pm).

UE 3.1 Writing workshop
UE.3.1.1 – Pitch sessions
UE.3.1.2 – Medium publication
UE 3.2 Critical Analysis of Scientific Approaches of Learning
UE 3.3 Internship II

For the first semester of M2, the students who enter directly in Master 2 can choose to follow the M1 courses instead of making their first internship. Then, they can follow as many courses as they want to, but have to validate only 2 courses. You can also choose to validate more than 2 courses, in this case the 2 best grades will be taken into account. In either case, they have to follow the M2 mandatory courses.
