ISEN, the engineering school for training in computer science in Marseille
L'ISEN Méditerranée is an engineering school that, in the field of computer science, trains young people from baccalaureate to baccalaureate +6 level and accompanies them throughout their student life.
In 2018, ISEN opened its campus in Marseille dedicated to computer science engineering training by apprenticeship. Since the beginning of the academic year 2021, the campus also hosts the bachelor of technology in gaming. These degree courses combine science, technology and engineering and are aimed at young people who want to work in the IT sector.
ISEN is a higher education institution that trains engineers and experts in the digital sector in Marseille, but the training does not stop at technical or scientific subjects. Students learn to communicate, to manage, to gain perspective on their activities and, above all, as no one knows the technologies of tomorrow, they learn to learn.
ISEN promises each student, from the baccalaureate to the master level, each talent, each future professional to be accompanied throughout his training course, a course which corresponds as much to his desires as to the needs of companies and society.
ISEN is a grande école certified by the CTIthe "commission des titres d'ingénieurs", and is one of the 204 best engineering schools, authorized to deliver an engineering degree. The CTI is an independent organization, in charge since 1934 of evaluating all French engineering schools. ISEN is also qualified as an EESPIG (Etablissement d'Enseignement Supérieur Privé reconnu d'Intérêt Général), as are the major associative engineering schools in contract with the State.

Computer engineering , a growth sector
ISEN works in partnership with companies. More than 100 partner companies offer internships and work-study programs to our students every year. Some of them are even more involved in the life of the school by sponsoring one of our classes or by collaborating in research projects, or by proposing conferences on the professions.
To help students meet their recruiters, the Digital Native Forum is the event organized within ISEN to create this meeting between companies and students. Twice a year, this forum is open to ISEN students and young graduates, looking for a job, a work-study program or an internship. About thirty companies are present and hundreds of recruitment interviews are proposed for local, national or international jobs.
The result of this dynamic is that 98% of the young ISEN graduates are employed less than 5 months after graduation. ISEN graduates are recognized and in demand in all sectors of activity for their wide-ranging skills in the field of computer science but also for their interpersonal skills.
