  • Currently identified through a highly selective process (MOOCs, Makers Day – code day, proctored exam, 3-day-bootcamp, technical acceleration)

Why
During the 6 months immersion, talents will have academic tutoring, MOOCs, 25 technical training-sessions and hands-on reinforcement working on a project in an enterprise and simultaneously their own personal project.
