Policies & Procedures



The academic year starts in Semptember and ends in June. It is divided into four Periods (P1, P2, P3 & P4). The two first Periods correspond to the first Semester (S1), and the two last Periods to the second Semester (S2). The starting/ending dates of the Periods are not exactly the same for all institutes, meaning that the starting/ending weeks of courses depend on which institutes they are held (see Overall Schedule).


Each student should choose a tutor according to his/her main domain of interest. Interacting with any lecturer is of course encouraged, but the tutor will have a special role (see below). If no tutor is chosen, one will be assigned.

Choice of courses

At the beginning of each year, the student must select a coherent set of courses, according to her/his preferences and prior knowledge. In general, M1 students will take M1 classes, and M2 students will take M2 classes, but students may select different classes depending on their particular background, taking into account class’ prerequisites. Students are invited to contact their tutor (and/or other lecturers) to help them in choosing courses. The tutor will validate the chosen list of course and inform the administration.


M1 students can follow 5 to 10 ECTS in other tracks of the Computer Science Master.


The students must follow at least one project module among:

M2 Internship

All M2 students must do a 6 months internship (which counts for 30 ECTS), generally during the second Semester. The internship can be performed in an academic or industry research lab, including all IP Paris laboratories. The choice of the internship must be validated by the tutor.
