A good engineer in Software Engineering is no longer just about his purely technical skills. Our challenge at Efrei Paris is to train multidisciplinary engineers, experts, international and adapted to the real needs of companies. This is why, within the campus, the emphasis is placed on technical aspects ... as much as on project-based pedagogy, the acquisition of softskills or the development of permanent links between teaching and our partner companies.
