Areas of IT

Information systems are a ubiquitous feature of our daily lives. It is therefore difficult to compile a complete list of the potential areas of work.

At present, the sector severely lacks a highly-qualified workforce, so much so that students are even recruited by businesses before they have finished their course!
Main sectors:
  • Medicine (e-health)
  • Energy (e-energy)
  • Administration (e-government)
  • Web (e-services)
  • Mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.)
  • Telecommunications
  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Automotive
  • Home automation architecture
  • Sales, marketing
  • etc.

Depending on students’ interests and skills, IT also enables them to move towards other areas such as the multimedia industry (cinema, video games, sound, video, new technologies, etc.).
