Master of Science in Engineering "Diplôme d'Ingénieur"

Digital Transformation and Transition

Course director

Virginie Lethiais


Myriam le Goff

In a context of technological and digital innovation, the TNT theme deals on the one hand with the interaction of companies with their markets and on the other hand with internal change that can improve efficiency.

The digitization of information is constantly transforming processes, structures and relationships within companies and organisations, as well as the way they interact with external stakeholders (customers, suppliers, local authorities, etc.). The engineer-managers who master the tools, provided by the IS, used to acquire, handle, and utilize information will thus be key players in any 21st century company. Using the skills acquired here at IMT, they will help companies and their projects adapt to ever-changing internal and external challenges. In these two contexts, the course will focus on:

  • stakeholder behaviour (internal and external),
  • new business models, new consumer patterns and new customer relations,
  • alignment of the organization with the company's strategy, and in particular the contribution of an Information System well-suited to the organization.
