Diploma : Master in «Computer Sciences»- University Paris- Saclayhttps://www.universite-paris-saclay.fr/sites/default/files/logo_0.png


The track “Algorithmique et Fondements de la Programmation (AFP)” of the Master Computer Sciences of University Paris Saclay is a component of the research-oriented master programme in computer science run jointly by the following institutions: University Paris Diderot, l'Ecole normale supérieure de la rue d'Ulm, Paris, (ENS Ulm), and University Paris Saclay (which includes l'Ecole normale supérieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan), l'Ecole Polytechnique, and Telecom Paris Tech). Its purpose is to train future scientists through intensive exposure to contemporary research in computer science. The aim of the programme is to offer students both core training in the fundamentals of computer science and more specialised training constitutive of a true introduction to research. One or two research internships complete this classical training curriculum.

In view of the great variety of cultural and educational backgrounds of the students, students select their own customised two-year curriculum, i.e. not only the courses they wish to follow, but also the number and type of internships.The second year (M2 year) begins with a first semester dedicated to specialisation by way of level 2 advanced courses. The second semester is devoted to a research internship within a laboratory, either in France or abroad.
The specialisations available include:
· Algorithms
· Automata and Formal Languages
· Automated Deduction
· Combinatorics and Computer algebra
· Computability and Complexity
· Cryptography, Coding, and Security
· Logics and Semantics of Programs
· System Programming, Analysis, and Verification
