Information technology has permeated all sectors of activity and its use is constantly evolving. The IT sector is continually developing and offers excellent employment prospects and good employment conditions.
The IT sector is home to continuing innovation and its experts are sought after by digital service companies, software publishers, banks, industrial and commercial companies, administrations and of course start-ups.
The first two years are the Preparatory Cycle and are school-based. The next three years are the Engineering Cycle, during which students study and work and have a professional training contract (or apprenticeship contract from October 2021).
This course is reviewed and validated each year by our Advisory Board, whose members include our corporate and institutional partners and which validates our academic offer.
The five-year “Grande École” programme offered by École Hexagone prepares students for the different computer engineering professions.
It is a multidisciplinary programme in information technology that includes topics such as development, system and network administration, databases and management.
From the first year, to build skills that are relevant to businesses
To build a solid and reusable skills base
To stimulate curiosity and a desire to learn and practice skills.

Advanced networks (Huawei)
Microsoft Windows Server
Microsoft Active Directory

Virtualisation (VMware VCA)
CSS Frameworks (Bootstrap)
When studying any of these subjects, curiosity and practice are essential. These two things will help students to understand the functioning of everything they encounter so that they can go one step further and be ready to create and innovate. The programme has been designed to further develop our students’ intellectual curiosity and this experimental approach.
In the Engineering Cycle students start doing professional training within a company. The proportion of work and study has been agreed with the partner companies who recruit our students to ensure the ideal balance. You will spend three days in class and two days in the company. This type of work and study programme involves an approved internship, a professional training contract or an apprenticeship contract (available from October 2021).
This comprehensive programme covers innovative and essential topics for the future computer engineer: 5G networks, artificial intelligence, big data, cloud, BIM, etc.

IT Security Manager
With École Hexagone's IT course, become one of the much sought-after experts in the digital professions.
École Hexagone invites companies and key market players the opportunity to join its Advisory Board. This council, which meets several times a year, determines the academic content of programmes to ensure they meet the (future) needs of companies.
Microsoft, Huawei and Apple are some of the undisputed leaders among 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 École Hexagone is launching an artificial intelligence course in 2021. But that's not all. 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 specialising 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.
The idea of supporting and training the talents of tomorrow in the use of French technologies reflects the values of 3DS OUTSCALE, and it is therefore only natural that we wanted to join forces with École Hexagone.
Expertise and sharing are part of our DNA and through its highly relevant training programme, École Hexagone enables us to put in place quality talks and exchanges with its students.
Our initial exchanges have been promising, and herald a partnership that we plan to maintain over the long term.
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 only natural that we would contact Hexagone, as the content and curricula fit with our needs.
We are delighted to have students from Hexagone among our “Junior” Experts!
