DESCRIPTION DU PROGRAMME
L’objectif de ce programme est de procurer aux étudiants une connaissance
étendue de l’informatique. Il donnera aux étudiants de solides éléments de base
dans les secteurs fondamentaux de l’informatique, les préparant ainsi à des
carrières dans les secteurs traditionnels de l’industrie, du commerce, de
l’éducation et de la finance aussi bien que dans les secteurs nouveaux de
l’industrie spatiale, de l’édition électronique, de la santé et de tous les aspects de
L’industrie de la communication par internet en expansion rapide. Les étudiants
pourront aussi acquérir les éléments de base nécessaires pour entreprendre des
études supplémentaires de niveau Master et par la suite effectuer de la
Recherche.
Ce diplôme a pour objectif de se focaliser sur le développement des logiciels et
des matériels sur des domaines d’application variés, tout en préparant le diplômé
aux inévitables changements dans le domaine de l’informatique. L’introduction
d’un stage industriel prépare les candidats aux carrières de l’informatique et situe
leurs études dans le contexte des applications variées de l’informatique.
Le programme a les objectifs suivants :
 présenter l’étude systématique de la théorie et des principes de
programmation, du génie logiciel, du matériel informatique et des
logiciels , ainsi que le rôle du système d’information dans les entreprises,
 développer la capacité d’analyser les problèmes informatiques et formuler
des solutions pratiques pour les résoudre, associée à la capacité à
formuler une évaluation critique de l’approche et des techniques utilisées,
 développer des compétences clés et des compétences entreprenariales
pour soutenir la progression de l’étudiant au cours de sa carrière dans
l’industrie du logiciel ou dans la poursuite de ses études futures,
 développer des compétences personnelles et de communication et
développer la prise de conscience du monde des affaires.
To adopt a more student-centred approach, a flexible form of teaching will
be conducted in both English and French where appropriate.
Le programme se déroulera à la fois en formation initiale (FI) et en formation
continue(FC) selon la demande.

ORGANISATION DU PROGRAMME
Le DULT/BSC Génie Logiciel est un diplôme en 3 ans divisés en 6 semestres.
Chaque semestre équivaut à 30 crédits (ce qui fait un total de 180 crédits pour
tout le programme).
Les 3 premiers semestres sont communs avec le DUST/Diploma Génie Logiciel.
Au semestre 6, les étudiants entreprendront un important projet sous la direction
d’un enseignant responsable. The project report (rapport de stage) can be
written in either French or English. Upon completion of the course project,
the student is required to perform a formal presentation in either English or
French language in front of a panel composed of academic staff of the
department and/or industrialists.
Le semestre 6 comprend aussi un stage industriel obligatoire de 10 semaines.
Ce stage permettra à l’étudiant de découvrir comment les technologies et les
compétences apprises sont utilisées dans les entreprises. Cela aidera aussi
l’étudiant à appréhender des compétences techniques et des connaissances
professionnelles et à découvrir les différentes carrières possibles. A chaque
étudiant sera attribué un enseignant référent qui l’aidera à fixer ses objectifs et
contrôlera ses progrès - et lui fournira une aide supplémentaire si nécessaire.
Les industriels locaux pourront être contactés pour se joindre au jury
d’enseignants du département pour évaluer le travail de l’étudiant. The
presentation of the work can be conducted in either English or French.

Aims:
12 weeks
Credits: 10
Students are expected to have completed all modules of semesters I, II, and
III, IV and V.
The Industrial Placement Programme (IPP) exposes students to real-life
working situations in the local IT industry. They will work in local
companies in real life projects with IT professionals and will be immersed in
the daily operations of the company.
Contents:
The student is required to report to the company which he/she is attached throughout the
attachment period. The student might be given an allowance (determined by the company). The
student will abide with the company's operating hours, dress code and any other human resource
requirements.
The student reports to the Officer-in-Charge who is a staff of the company. The Officer-inCharge supervises the student directly, provides technical guidance and assesses the student's
performance. A Liaison Officer who is a staff of the School will be appointed to oversee the
smooth running of our student's attachment.
The Liaison Officer will liaise and visit the Officer-in-Charge and the student during the
attachment. The Officer-in-Charge can communicate to the Liaison Officer for any matters
regarding the student attached and the attachment during the whole duration of the attachment
Assessment
At the end of the Industrial Placement Programme, the student will be required to produce a
report to the Liaison Office of the faculty and to the officer-in-charge of the staff of the company.
The report (Rapport de Stage) can be written in either English or French.
Local IT industrials can be called upon to assess the student in a panel (which will include
members of the academic staff of the department) where the presentation of the work done in the
company will be assessed (Soutenance de Stage).

Credits: 8
Prerequisites:
Aims:
The project will be undertaken over semesters V and VI. The aims of this
project are:




to provide students with the opportunity of exploring a particular
topic in computer science in some considerable depth;
to provide the opportunity of specifying, designing and implementing
a complete system and experiencing the major phases of the lifecycle
of a computing project;
to enhance students’ competence in system design, algorithm analysis
and mathematical reasoning, and their fluency in using programming
languages and tools;
to give students an intellectual challenge to their abilities to learn new
subjects without instruction, and to further develop their abilities in
literature searching, report writing, verbal presentation, project
planning and time management.
Description:
The course project is intended to give students the opportunity to consolidate the knowledge that
they have acquired throughout the course to computerise a real-life or research-based software.
The project will include analysis, design, implementation and testing of software and a written
report that describes the work. The Department produces an annual list of proposed projects, and
students should approach members of staff for detailed information on those projects that interest
them or suggestions for alternatives. Each student will be supervised by a member of staff. The
course project will require strong project management skills, problem-solving abilities, and self
directed study.
Assessment
The course project involves a number of milestones including the production of three
documents (an initial project document, an interim document and a final project report) written
in either English or French and a demo/viva meeting conducted in English or French.
