For the curious and adventurous problem solvers of our world.
Essential life skills
Offering a solution to outdated university curriculums
ALGOSUP was born out of the vision of Éric Larchevêque (co-founder of Ledger) and Franck Jeannin (co-creator of the first UbiSoft games) to create a school that the two seasoned computer programming masters would have once dreamed of studying at themselves. Meanwhile, their colleague Natacha Boez recognised the unique opportunity to inject an entrepreneurial spirit into the venture by developing an exciting educational experience that bridged the gap between academia and the working world. And so ALGOSUP has evolved…
Research shows the traditional way is not always the best way
ALGOSUP students learn by doing. Our learning process is led by neuroscience and cognitive science and we use that approach to guide and pace our courses. Designing software requires a large array of skills. Not only programming but analysing needs and creating solutions. Our students:
As they discover the latest tech innovations alongside essential core knowledge, they learn to adapt their processes. Every learning curve is unique and prepares students to anticipate how tech may evolve in the future.
Our students develop habits for continuous learning
While nothing stands still in technology, we shy away from the latest fads (some web frameworks have a shorter shelf life than a bottle of milk and, no, you don’t need a blockchain to do that). We instead focus on essential skills (hardware architectures, binary logic, algorithms, data structures, …) and identify and study the new technologies that are important. Our students understand early on that they will have to learn all their life to keep on top of ever-changing innovations and we help them develop that natural inclination for continuous learning.
So, how do you become an ALGOSUP student
(and a highly sought-after graduate)?
(Hey, what did you expect?
We’re a software development school after all!).
That’s right, we created a video game that could unlock new potential you never knew existed by identifying whether your unique thinking process is suited to our learning program.
If the video game indicates you have the critical mindset and creative determination you need to succeed when designing software, we will arrange to meet and discuss ALGOSUP with you in-depth, so you can explore what a future in software development could look like.
We'll let you know straight away whether you have a place at ALGOSUP. There's no agonising wait to endure. Now the decision is down to you - your future's in your hands. And the great news is, if you choose ALGOSUP you can start almost immediately - we take in new students every six weeks.
