Our academic partners,
members of our Scientific Council

The École Hexagone is offering certain companies and market players the opportunity to join its Scientific Council. This Council, which meets several times a year, determines the academic content of the programmes to meet the (future) needs of companies.

French Tech

Microsoft, Huawei and Apple are among the leading IT companies. It is essential for students to master the latest technologies (e.g. 5G) so that they are able to implement them in their future careers. This is why the Hexagone School is opening an Artificial Intelligence course in 2021. But the Hexagone School does not stop there. It has also set itself the task of promoting French Tech among its international students by teaching them the latest French technologies:

Symfony, the leading French PHP framework

Outscale, the French professional hosting company

Stormshield, the first French publisher specializing in cybersecurity, certified by the ANSSI

The objective of these academic and strategic partnerships is twofold: the students benefit from cutting-edge education, and they will ultimately help develop the audience for French technologies by exporting them via future graduates.

Our academic partners,
members of our Scientific Council

Estelle Brown & Marion Frémy - 3DS Outscale

The idea of supporting and training the talents of tomorrow in the use of French technologies echoes the values of 3DS OUTSCALE and it is therefore only natural that we wanted to join forces with École Hexagone.

Sharing and expertise are in our DNA and through its highly relevant training programme, the Hexagone school enables us to put in place quality interventions with its students.

Our initial exchanges have been promising, and herald a partnership that we plan to maintain over the long term.

Cyril Bertschy - Bispok

The clients we work with, whether CAC 40 groups or SMEs, are looking for concrete, tailor-made and efficient solutions to their secure connectivity issues. To support our growth, it was natural that we contacted Hexagone, as the content and curricula fit with our needs.

We are delighted to have students from Hexagone among our “junior” Experts!

Do you have one of the student-worker profiles we are looking for?
