This course gives the student the knowledge about standard data structures and algorithms on trees and graphs. It presents advanced data structures (heaps, self-balanced binary trees…) and complexity analysis of recursive algorithms. Graph algorithms (traversal, topological sort, shortest paths, flows…) are also detailed.

Furthermore notions of calculability and an introduction to the theory of Complexity (polynomial reductions, P and NP classes) are studied.

This course focuses on various aspects of database management systems (BDMS) and their design.

It presents a wide range of topics such as alternatives to relational databases, the design of databases without anomalies or redundancy, the concurrent access to a database, how to deal with failures, deductive databases, object-oriented databases and the use of XML and Xquery for the management of semi-structures data.

The first objective of this course teaches the advanced concepts of object-oriented programming: inheritance, delegation, generic classes, exceptions, …

The second objective is to cover some other aspects of programming such as man/machine interface, unit tests, threads …

The Internet of Things is the next technological revolution. IoT makes it possible to extend the Internet to all objects of the physical world that until now was disconnected from the digital world. It opens new opportunities and perspectives: it is an area of rapid growth and a huge opportunity. Indeed, all everyday objects will be potentially connected: it goes from televisions, watches, cars, bicycles, clothing, heating system, to buildings, etc. The peculiarity of IoT is to have a multidisciplinary cross-cutting impact, and in fact, the IoT affects many industrial sectors such as aerospace, aviation, telecommunications, agriculture, health, automobile, railway, building, energy, city, home automation, smart environments (ie, smart space, smart building, and smart city).

In this context, this course aims to provide the foundations for designing and building connected objects. In particular, it covers the key principles and tools to achieve this aim. It addresses embedded systems, the Raspberry Pi Platform, and the Arduino environment for building devices that can control the physical world. Each student will be given an ESP32 microcontroller with wireless network interface enabled. Students will have the opportunity to design completely their own IoT device with a range of hardware and electronics components. Further, the different software frameworks dedicated to IoT will be studied to design complex and connected IoT applications. Security risks related to IoT devices will also be introduced.

This course presents basic notions of Formal Language Theory and its application to compilation. It focuses on basic constructions of grammars, automata and regular expressions, and details the proofs and definitions by induction on the length of words or the structure of a regular expression. Applications on compilation cover all questions of translation from one language to another. It will present practice of various aspects of compilation and application of classical algorithms for code optimization.

The goal of this course is to understand how an operating system is working, combining the evolution of the computer architecure on one side, and the constraints from applications on this other side.

In 2018-19, IEI Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh) has opened enrollment for this program. The program is a Partnership Degree Program (also known as Joint Master’s Program) between University of Bordeaux (France) and IEI Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh). The program structure is designed by University of Bordeaux. All the ongoing degree programs at IEI are being carried out as per European standards, and are accredited by Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh) as well as being periodically monitored by Vietnam Ministry of Education. For more details on the program structure and compulsory modules, please visit the program’s website.
After graduation, students will be awarded a French certificate. This certificate is of equal value to that of those studying at University of Bordeaux in France. Each module will carry a certain amount of credits (equivalent to ECTs) and it is recognized worldwide. Therefore, students will be able to use this certificate for application to higher education or for jobs around the globe. This indicates higher chances of success and so, self-development. IEI has seen many of its students successfully submitted job applications to big companies and research institutes around the world or have secured a job position in international firms.
No, you will not. This degree program is designed by the partner university (University of Bordeaux), thus they are fully responsible for awarding certificates. IEI and Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh) do not interfere in this aspect.
However, you need not to worry as certificates awarded to students at IEI, Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh) are recognized by the Ministry of Education and Training in Vietnam. Therefore, students can use the certificates awarded by partner universities to apply for higher education or for jobs in Vietnam.
Please contact IEI for more information.
This certificate has been recognized by the Ministry of Education and Training in Vietnam, particularly the Quality Management Department. For more details about the Department, please visit their website: https://cnvb.wordpress.com
Students will only be awarded the certificate if they follow the admission regulations set out by IEI, Vietnam National University (Ho Chi Minh), especially the English requirements. Please contact IEI for more details on the administrative procedures.
It is possible to do so. This is because the transcript you have here at IEI is issued by University of Bordeaux, which follows the European standards, meaning it is recognized worldwide. However, it is up to the universities to accept your application or not. Also, it depends on your academic records/capabilities in meeting their requirements.
There are 19 subjects that students must complete (120 credits). Among these, there will be 17 subjects taught by French lecturers (theoretical knowledge – main course) and only 2 Vietnamese lecturers will be in charge of teaching Compiler and French. Each module/subject is divided into two parts (theory and practice), with Vietnamese lecturers responsible for the ‘practice’ part.
French lecturers who are in charge of teaching main subjects at IEI are either responsible for lecturing at our partner university or researchers working at our partner university. All of our Vietnamese lecturers have graduated from overseas universities and have been through quality censorship overseas. Please contact IEI for more information on the lecturers.
You are only limited by your fears. It may be difficult at first, but as time goes by, you will get used to the pace. At IEI, we emphasize the importance of teamwork the most, so you will be working with others as a team in different projects and discussions. Lecturers and classmates will be there to assist you as well. If you are still stressed out, do give us a call at 0983 01 06 12 and we will try our best to help you with it.
You are not alone. We have received a lot of enquiries regarding the same matter, expressing their worries. Please be confident and overcome your fears, this is what education is meant for. This program does not require excellent English skills, so we believe that you will still be able to catch up with the class by having the basic English skills. Also, throughout your study period, you will be able to improve your English.
Internship is a mandatory part of the program. This will typically last 6 months. At IEI, there are two forms of available internship opportunities:
- Professional Internship: students choose a topic that is closely related to real world projects. Students will be welcomed to become a member of the projects. This form of internships is suitable for those working at a company, as it provides them with chances to apply theoretical knowledge into practice. Therefore, allowing continuous development through advancement and improvement.
- Research Internship: students pick from a range of topics given by lecturers and join the research team that is under supervision of specialized professors. At IEI, currently available internship opportunities are for students to work in LaBRI laboratory in France with their research team (please contact IEI for further details).
Studying at IEI will help to increase your chance of getting an internship in France. Having better skills, capabilities and experience are going to enhance the opportunity even more. At IEI, there are two forms of internships available in France. The first one would be an internship at LaBRI laboratory (University of Bordeaux). This opportunity is mostly given to students by professors, with an average of 1 to 2 available internship opportunities each year. The second form would be an internship at French corporations. This opportunity is either given to students by French lecturers or by students actively searching and applying to the firms. Companies typically choose the best candidates available to them hence, do study hard, have a positive attitude and a careful plan so that your efforts and money would not go to waste.
Once you have had an internship in France, it will be much easier for you to pursue your PhD in France. For those undertaking an internship in Vietnam, it is still possible to study PhD in France as well since the academic documents are produced according to European standards and are internationally recognized. This provides you with an advantage that will increase the chances of you getting a scholarship or pursuing a Higher Education program (i.e. PhD).
It is possible to do so. However, it depends entirely on your academic records and especially, your capabilities, skills and work experiences. By actively searching for internships and networking, you can increase your chances of getting an overseas internship.
