Tech training: the importance of meeting tomorrow’s challenges.

Home » Tech training: the importance of meeting tomorrow’s challenges.

Today, technology is an integral part of our lives. Technologies have become an integral part of our daily lives, in every profession and every sector, requiring us to master new tools and acquire new skills. Today, it is crucial to train tomorrow’s engineers, entrepreneurs, managers and leaders to better understand the world around us, as well as the challenges facing society and technology.

What are the challenges posed by the new technologies that are omnipresent in our lives?

The digital revolution is underway, and we are witnessing a shortage of skills in this field, not only among software publishers and digital services companies, but also among all players in the economic world.

And there’s a lot at stake. Firstly, from a societal point of view, we all need to have a minimum level of digital literacy to be able to evolve in this changing world and become responsible consumers. And action needs to be taken from the earliest age to develop a digital culture and introduce people to the fundamentals of computing.

Then there’s the economic aspect. Recruitment is seen as the number one challenge facing companies in the sector today. Reports and studies on this subject are unanimous: we’re going to have to train people with the right skills en masse if we’re to benefit fully from the growth offered by the digital revolution. This is true at all levels of higher education qualification. The attractiveness of the industry is everyone’s responsibility. This is an opportunity for a sector of excellence for the French economy.

What’s more, these transformations require, and will continue to require, an almost permanent evolution in skills and professions. Training must therefore be seen in the long term, in view of the coming disruptions in information technology. Individuals will need to develop their ability to learn, adapt, create and be inventive throughout their lives.

Finally, we need to take up the challenge of making training courses more attractive, and work to change false or negative representations and preconceived ideas: are jobs just for boys? Careers for math whizzes? Jobs where professionals are constantly in front of their screens, with no interaction with other human beings? There is an infinite wealth of training and jobs in the digital sector, and there is not just one path, but many different ways to get there.

The 3 specialties offered by ECE

It’s for all these reasons that ECE has positioned itself on these major challenges and offers its students the opportunity to become digital specialists for tomorrow’s world. From3rd year onwards, students can specialize by choosing one of three in-depth options:

Specialization Frontend, Backend, Full Stack Developer

Taking into account ergonomic and security requirements, students in the Frontend, Backend, Full Stack Developer Specialization learn to use the appropriate programming languages to develop the application best suited to the customer’s needs. They are also trained in the testing and production of web applications and applications for mobile devices (PDAs, smartphones, tablets, etc.).

Specialization: Security & IT Developer

The Security & IT Developer Specialization is designed to enable students to master the basic principles of cybersecurity, applying industry-recognized and emerging practices to solve real-world security problems.

Cybersecurity is currently a major issue for companies and organizations. With the growing importance of information and communication technologies in our daily lives, the protection of data and IT systems has become an essential concern. To face this constant threat, it is urgent to train competent professionals capable of ensuring the digital security of their company or organization. IT security training therefore enables individuals to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to detect, prevent and react to potential cyber-attacks.

Data Developer Specialization

Big data is presented as the new industrial revolution. Indeed, the amount of data generated by individuals and companies once stored in data farms is a mine of information, which the specialists trained by the Bachelor Numérique Spécialité Développeur Data are able to exploit and add value to in order to offer new services. To achieve this, students receive solid training in digital marketing, the science of data analysis using mathematical tools, and database management.

Today, every organization in the world relies on data to draw up business plans and make decisions. It’s hard to imagine today’s world without this use and analysis of data. Most electronic devices use the IoT(Internet of Things) to collect data, from smart cars to wearable tech. IoT innovations have exploded in recent years, impacting everything from the way we control the temperature of our homes to the way we count our daily steps and calorie intake. We’re surrounded by many electronic devices, which IoT and big data connect to make our lives better.

The importance of training new generations

All these requirements have not escaped the attention of higher education establishments, and ECE in particular. A foundation of skills and knowledge is crucial today. In addition to technological knowledge, it is also important not to overlook ethical issues and so-called soft skills. The more important technology becomes, the more we need enlightened, adaptable citizens. Profiles that companies are already snapping up.

The ECE Bachelor combines all this and will reveal the talent of future learners who, thanks to the learning mode, will be able to deploy their creativity in the fields of big data, AI, cybersecurity, software development, etc. With its combination of professional immersion, social commitment and innovation, this Bachelor’s degree opens the way to qualified, well-paid profiles.
