Stefano ACOSTA - Ecuador - Class of 2018
"To have a new international experience, deepen my knowledge about software engineering, and learn a new language in the place it is spoken; is what drove me to go for specialization at Epita.
Being new to the language, the program got me to a professional level in French and gave me the necessary IT tooling to face any major project, getting the complete image of an industrialized software product.
Having teachers that face real day-to-day problems at their roles makes the program fit modern needs, I felt that it was more connected to the real world than a classic theory-only program."
