Student Projects

An example of a virtual and augmented reality project.

First-year project, created by Jean-Charles NEBOIT and Antoine DUPUY, supervised by Emmanuel Mesnard. It corresponds to a 'feasibility study of integrating virtual reality and real images in Unity3D for a live performance.'

ISIMA opens its doors to high school students wishing to become computer engineers, by offering 33 places in a two-year post-baccalaureate preparatory course, called Prép’ISIMA, linked to Clermont Auvergne University.

How to apply to Prep’ISIMA?

On the parcoursup portal, in the training search engine, select “Cycle Universitaire Préparatoire aux Grandes Ecoles” (CUPGE) in the Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne region. You will then find the ISIMA preparatory program.

For the past few years, we have also been recruiting students who have successfully excelled their first year of a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Clermont Auvergne, in the Mathematics-Computer Science program, to enter directly into the second year of Prep’ISIMA. The application procedure is communicated internally to N1 students in June.

What are the recruitment conditions for this preparatory program?

Admission to this preparatory program is determined by a specific ISIMA jury that reviews application files (grades and details of subjects studied in the first and final years, teacher evaluations, and a motivated training project). For candidates who have received a positive response from the jury, final enrollment in this program is subject to actually obtaining the Baccalaureate.

Information on the High School Reform – Bac 2021:

Taking the “Mathématiques expertes” option is strongly recommended.

How does this preparatory program work?

Successful candidates will follow the curriculum of the first two years of the Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (N1 and N2) at the University of Clermont Auvergne, with specific modules taught by ISIMA teachers.

In the first year, Prep’ISIMA students will attend N1 courses offered in the Mathematics-Computer Science program (see the Bachelor’s program for details on subjects). In the second year, they will attend N2 Computer Science courses with a Minor in Mathematics before specializing in computer science in the middle of the second year.

The specific modules are taught by ISIMA in its premises. Here are some examples of these modules (subject to change):

  • Introduction to Imaging (12 hours)
  • Mathematics for Engineers (12 hours)
  • Linux Development Workshop (14 hours)
  • Computer Science Careers: ISIMA alumni engineers come to present their careers (12 hours)
  • Modeling, Solution, Programming (30 hours)
  • Virtual Reality (30 hours)
  • Project (30 hours)

Students in this program receive personalized support through the ISIMA teacher responsible for Prép’ISIMA.

Advantages of the Program

Privileged access to ISIMA: Students in this program will be automatically admitted to ISIMA (in the first year of the engineering cycle), provided they pass both years of the bachelor’s degree in two years and in the first session, with at least 12/20 each year and in each of the modules within the specific units of the Prép’ISIMA program.

Access to ISIMA’s student associations:

Students in this program have access to ISIMA’s student associations and school events.
