Our mission is to provide the excellent training in Research, Engineering and Innovation:


created in the heart of the oldest Europeen Universities, the IKSEM program provides the extensive 12 months training allowing its graduates to pursue their career in research and to start a Ph.D. in one the leading universities around the world. 

The research team of the Centre de Recherche en Informatique (CRI) of Sorbonne is well recognized by the international IS Engineering research community.

Invited professors from the universities around the world (EPFL, University of Stockholm, University of Utrecht, University of Valencia etc.) are joining us during the year, delivering lectures and research seminars.


requirements engineering, knowledge engineering, method engineering, process and data enginering, analysis, and management - are our core competences. 

Our experience in IS engineering is confirmed by the numerous scientific publications in the international journals and conferences.

Many of our courses are prepared and delivered in collaboration with our industrial partners:  analysts, consultants, managers and engineers from the leading companies headquartered in the Paris region.


we are working in a tight collaboration with industry. Synergy of research and hands-on experience is our priority. 

By a classical pathway or by apprenticeship, our students are dealing with problems from the real organizations on the daily basis. 

95% of the master thesis are focusing on the industrial problems.

Our Objectives:

IKSEM is a 1 year international Master program,  a tween sister of the MIAGE master program, well-known in France. Our main topics are Engineering and Management of Information and Knowledge Systems.
