Pourquoi avez-vous choisi de participer au TIAD ?

L’IoT, ce n’est pas seulement de la prospective, c’est une réalité quotidienne, mais c’est aussi un buzzword qu’il faut savoir dépasser, en montrant concrètement ce que représente l’IoT aujourd’hui. Dans les années à venir, l’IoT va toucher l’ensemble des métiers et des activités, et révolutionner beaucoup de choses. L’IoT rejoint les problématiques d’automatisation, qui est le thème central du TIAD, c’est donc pour moi une bonne occasion de partager la vision qui est la nôtre de l’IoT ...

Olivier Crouzet
Dean of Studies

About Olivier Crouzet

With a scientific background, Olivier Crouzet got a Master degree as an IT engineer. During scholarship, he acted both as a technical assistant and a teaching assistant. After 2 years as system administrator in the 3rd French Internet service provider, he joined Nicolas Sadirac to develop during the last ten years a well-known IT school witch became a French leader with 4000 students. He designed the pedagogical model, and made it evolve. Based on this educational success, a new IT school '42' is created in 2013, along with Nicolas Sadirac, Kwame Yamgnane and Florian Bucher, promoting an even more advanced training methodology, called Peer-Learning. Olivier Crouzet designed this model: 100%-project-based, without any teacher, lecture, nor knowledge transfer. Students debate, exchange ideas, try, fail, try again, to reach the goal, and finally evaluate their peers. Founded and funded by Xavier Niel, owner of one of the four french telecom company, '42' is totally free for the students. In this spirit of social opening, Olivier Crouzet, while still evolving the pedagogical model of the school, is also promoting evolution in the French education system through various conferences.

Pourquoi avez-vous choisi de participer au TIAD ?

Un des objectifs premiers de 42 est l’intégration professionnelle de nos étudiants. Il est naturel pour nous de nous présenter auprès des entreprises du secteur, d’expliquer ce que l’on fait, comment on le fait, quelles sont les façons de fonctionner de nos étudiants, ce que l’on peut en attendre. Pour certains participants, selon leur culture, leurs habitudes en matière d’informatique et de SI, il peut parfois être déroutant de se confronter à ces jeunes.

Et puis, j’ai été étudiante à Paris il y a longtemps, donc c’est une excellente opportunité de revenir et d’aller à la rencontre de la communauté IT parisienne.
