The Data ScienceTech Institute (DSTI) school, which trains young graduates and working professionals in Data Science, Data Analytics and Data Engineering, continues to evolve. The training will now be offered in alternation from September 2021 .. A virtual open day will take place on Friday July 9.
Faced with the COVID-19 health crisis and a complex economic situation, training is more essential than ever. To relaunch growth, it is essential that everyone be able to acquire the skills sought by companies.
The training in future technologies, like Data Science or artificial intelligence, must be prioritized. They allow the development of expertise that will retain its value over the long term.
The creation of a vast pool of experts in new technologies goes through traditional universities, but also through specialization schools like DSTI.
Founded in 2015, DSTI stands out for its positioning. This school dedicated to the Data professions has made the choice of an exclusively “postgraduate” strategy : it only trains graduates wishing to expand their portfolio of know-how.
The DSTI school is opening up to work-study programs
Six years after its creation, DSTI continues to evolve and now offers work-study training. The three training courses are always offered full-time or in asynchronous mode, between 8 and 9 months of lessons, followed by 6 months of internship in a company of the DSTI network. apprenticeship and professionalization contracts will allow students to reconcile theory and practice to facilitate their professional integration.
The Data Science and Data Engineering programs will be spread over two years, and learners will be able to start on the Fall or Spring promotions. For his part, the Data Analytics program can be done in one year by bac + 3 graduates.
The students who will choose the work-study program will be mixed with full-time students. The current Spring 2021 promotion already has three work-study students on professionalization contracts.
While there is already work-study training in Data Science, Data Analytics and Data Engineering, DSTI is doing well on several points. One of its great strengths is its teleconferencing capability, since trainings can be performed face-to-face on campus or remotely thanks to its expertise in teleconferencing tools.
This is a real asset, allowing the school to extend to companies all over France. Usually, the pool of work-study recruitments is linked to the school’s geographic location. This is not the case with DSTI and its online training. Students will be able to find a company among the 200 companies in the network.
In addition, work-study students will be able to choose between synchronous or asynchronous rhythm. In synchronous rhythm, the student will follow the training according to a schedule defined upstream. Asynchronously, he can customize the schedule in agreement with the company.
The next DSTI start will take place on September 27, 2021. To register, submit your application on the school website. You will then need to complete the online exam and pass a 20-minute admission interview. If successful, you will be put in touch with partner companies.
To check if the DSTI training courses are right for you, you can participate in the virtual Open Day organized on Friday July 9, 2021 from 2 p.m. During this half-day event, you will be able to attend a live lesson, request more information from the teams, and interact with a former student. Register at this address.
DSTI training courses receive the 3IA label
With its national program for artificial intelligence, the State wishes to make France one of the champions of AI. This notably involves the creation of a network of Interdisciplinary Artificial Intelligence Institutes (3IA).
the Nice-Sophia Antipolis 3IA Côte d’Azur project is part of this network, and DSTI is among the members alongside EURECOM, MINES ParisTech, SKEMA Business School, Inserm or AI players such as CNRS and Inria.
This project focuses on fundamental AI, AI for computational medicine, bio-inspired AI and AI for smart and secure territories. A total of 35 researchers and teacher-researchers hold chairs, including three DSTI teachers. Among them, Professor Charles Bouveyron is at the head of the 3IA Côte d’Azur project.
Beyond research, 3IA Côte d’Azur also aims to identify and recognize the best AI training programs. In this context, a ”Label 3IA Côte d’Azur“ is awarded by the Management Committee.
Among the 15 programs recognized in April 2021, we find the three DSTI programs: Applied MSc in Data Analytics, Applied MSc in Data Science & AI, and Applied MSc in Data Engineering for AI. This label will be placed on student transcripts and diplomas.
