Real-life projects set by companies, the workshops are tracked and coached from within the CREA. They are real-life situations, allowing students to discover the market and further develop the skills they already have while being evaluated.
. An introductory “bootcamp” week before the beginning of the workshop.
. A personal degree project (website or app) to be created during the course.
. Mini agency workshops.
The curriculum has 2 internship periods. The first is after the first year of the course (5 months compulsory).
The second is programmed at the end of the course (5 months with the option of extending the internship or converting it to a first job).
Brands and companies must very quickly adapt to technological evolutions that are causing huge changes in behaviour, uses and means of consuming today. To tackle these massive evolutions and changes linked to innovation, a large number of developers are sought to build IT departments in companies, web cells in agencies or development teams in start-ups.
Learn how to draw up a specification, translating the client’s needs into a functional and technical description, and then carry out the project yourself. Rare dual expertise will be acquired with independent project management and specialisations in web development on the front end, back end, in apps (iOs / Android) and networks.
Start like a young Padawan and end as a Jedi Master in the specialism that best suits you after the two first years of the course, deepen your knowledge of certain subjects during your final year. You will also work in teams with your future colleagues during real workshops led by the companies. Interactions with web designers, digital marketing managers and other developers will allow you to prepare for the realities of work. Learning through experience can only happen with real projects. The philosophy of this degree course is simple: providing development expertise.

ECTS credits: this degree is recognised by professional bodies and CREA partner companies, but is not a Swiss state qualification. It is nevertheless awarded by a private school and strictly conforms to the Bologna Process.
A partnership with ECE TECH, the IT and digital school in Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux, which is a state-recognised school offering courses at BAC+2 level (BTS SIO (IT diploma) / BTS SN (Digital Diploma)) to BAC+3 level (Bachelors) in the areas of computing and digital media.
Based both in France (Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux and Chambéry) and abroad (Monaco, London, San Francisco, Shanghai and now Geneva), the INSEEC Group provides all the opportunities of large cities with the energy of a friendly environment.
With a network of 180 prestigious partner universities, the INSEEC Group provides its students with various opportunities for double degrees and academic exchanges all over the world. Now CREA students can benefit from the strength of this international group, as much from the point of view of recognition of qualifications as with regard to the opportunities on offer for pursuing studies in Switzerland or worldwide.
“Always code as if the person who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath who knows where you live.”
