  • Objectives

    The aim of the MIAGE - Ingénierie des SI Etendus (MIAGE-ISIE) degree program is to specialize in the design and implementation of information systems that meet the new needs and possibilities of connected cities and territories. This specialization addresses the technologies involved in these projects, such as the inclusion of connected objects in business processes, visualization and geolocation issues, and IT to support mobility and urban logistics.

    The MIAGE profile is ensured by a strong core curriculum, providing a dual general competence in IT and management (see MIAGE specialization). In addition to the skills specific to the ISIE pathway, graduates are able to work on the digitization of all corporate management processes to ensure their computerization: management, sales management, financial management, human resources management, production management and logistics.

    Target skills

    The MIAGE-ISIE graduate is a manager in the field of Information Systems Engineering, capable of :

    • design and develop applications to meet internal or customer requirements
    • Organize data to optimize their use within applications
    • Manage simple IT projects
    • Integrate strategic, economic and legal aspects into needs analysis
    • Design and deploy a solution adapted to mobility and urban logistics needs.

    Internships and supervised projects

    The course is organized on a sandwich basis over the two years of the Master's program. In-company periods account for over half of the total training time, through internships or professionalization periods under apprenticeship or professionalization contracts.

    In addition, the program includes year-long projects during which students, working in independent teams, are asked to respond to "customer needs" represented by their teachers or industrial partners.

    Internships, work-study programs and projects must be linked to the specific features of this type of course, i.e. mainly linked to the design or redesign of corporate information systems, particularly in the context of interconnected urban systems.

  • Admission

    Admission to the M2 MIAGE ISIE course is by candidacy forms (eCandidat, FC candidacy form, Etudes en France, etc., depending on your situation).



    Candidacies are examined by a recruitment committee (which may meet several times), and recruitment decisions are made on the basis of the quality of the candidacy form and whether the requirements have been met (compulsory and recommended prerequisites listed below).

    A candidacy form may be deemed inadmissible (for example, if the application has not been made through the "right channel" or if the file is incomplete), or rejected, or require an additional audition, or be directly accepted. In the latter case (acceptance), the decision may be subject to reservations: it will be up to you to prove that these reservations can be lifted (by means of official documents).



    Recruitment decisions are formulated with regard to expectations: some of these expectations are "minimum" and should all be met, others are optional and are "a plus". Most of these expectations are expressed in terms of skill acquisition levels. The 4 levels used are as follows:

    • Ignorant: corresponds to the common knowledge of those who have never really been interested in the skill, the commonplaces ("Java is an OOP language"),
    • Beginner: corresponds to the state of someone who has taken an interest in the subject and has a first experience without having really consolidated the basics,
    • Competent: someone with initial professional experience, for example, who has acquired a solid foundation and knows how to do a certain number of things without question,
    • Expert: corresponds to someone who has gone a little further than standard practice. He or she has studied the subject at length to gain a more certain and broader mastery. He or she is able to consider the skill in its entirety and make his or her own discoveries.


    Administrative registration

    Administrative registration can only take place if ALL the following conditions are met:

    • Your candidacy has been accepted by the recruitment committee,
    • You can prove that any recruitment reservations can be lifted,
    • You attend the pre-entry day (MANDATORY attendance, no justification for absence), the date of which will be communicated later by e-mail.

    You will NOT be able to register online: you will have to go to the pedagogical secretary's office after the pre-registration day. If necessary (for scholarships, transport passes, etc.), we can provide you with a pre-registration certificate beforehand.


    Tips for putting together your candidacy form

    Be sure to fill in the candidacy form correctly, legibly and in full. Please ensure that you supply all the documents requested, scanned legibly and in the correct order (antechronologically, i.e. from the most recent to the oldest), with pages correctly oriented (textual information should be horizontal and readable from left to right when the document is displayed).

    Take particular care with your cover letter: as well as demonstrating your knowledge of the course you're applying for, it should show that your previous career path and career plans are consistent with the course. It should also show your interest in the field in question (magazines and websites consulted regularly, schoolwork or other work carried out in this field, etc.).

  • Mandatory prerequisites

    These expectations should all be met. They depend very much on the previous training pathway. The minimum expectations are as follows (see definition of skill acquisition levels above):

    • Competent in imperative programming (concepts and practice),
    • Competent in object programming (advanced concepts such as flows/patterns/threads/..., practical application),
    • Competent in algorithms (advanced algorithmic techniques, complexity),
    • Beginner in computer architecture,
    • Beginner in HMI design and production,
    • Competent in relational data management (modelling and SQL, stored procedures, etc.),
    • Beginner in statistics and probability,
    • Beginner in BI and AI,
    • Competent in Web technologies and languages (HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, etc.),
    • Beginner in networking (OSI model, client/server),
    • Beginner in mobile development,
    • Competent in taking account of specifications when proposing appropriate IT solutions,
    • Competent in modelling (data and processing),
    • Beginner in HR, marketing, accounting,
    • Beginner in strategic management, finance, law,
    • Competent in French (oral and written); level C1 (or higher) in French is required for foreign candidates,
    • Beginner in English (oral and written, equivalent to B2 level or higher).
  • Optional prerequisites

    Meeting these expectations is a "plus" in the assessment of the form and can be a discriminating factor. In particular, it can be demonstrated through the CV and covering letter. The optional requirements are as follows (see definition of skill acquisition levels above for the first):

    • Competent in the use of IT tools (configuration, installation, organisation of files, etc.),
    • A good appetite for the world of management information (consultation of sites and journals specialising in IT and management information),
    • Experience of the professional world (compliance with procedures and regulations, meeting deadlines, motivation and involvement, organisation, autonomy, etc.),
    • Professional certification(s) in project management.
  • Practical information

    This course is taught in Marseille (Ilot Bernard Dubois).
