Currently second-year student in CentraleSupélec, one of France’s Grandes Ecoles of engineering,
I am interested in new technologies and digital issues.
Today, I want to apply to the Digital Tech Year program.
I am a second year student in CentraleSupelec, an engineering school specialized in electronic and computing sciences. Today, I would like to do a gap year into a special program called Digital Tech Year. This would allow me to put my programming skills into practice, while improving them, working with a team on real issues for companies. Moreover, this program would allow me to discover the world of business and how start-ups works, because I’ve been thinking about creating one for several years.Thus, I will discover this world which is very obscure to me right now, and perhaps this would confirm my choice to try my luck !
Passionate about computing and electronic for years, I made several projects, alone or with a team, that I let you discover at the bottom of this page. These hobbies brought me to do the path I did, and thanks to them I am today in CentraleSupélec. My curiosity allows me to keep learning new things and get new skills which I just need to put into practice now.
Obtaining my Baccalaureate with highest honors for scientific studies - Option Engineering sciences
For 2 years, I have learned to design and realize electronic circuits, for digital and analogue purposes. I also studied computing (C programmation, FPGA description, assembly language, networks, …)
Thoses two years I’ve been asked to work on several technical projects, more or less important, but always in a team. Besides, I have already had to lead my team on several of these projects et this has been very instructive. This formation has ended with a 5-month internship in Sherbrooke, near Montréal (QC).
Obtaining my 2-year diploma of technology in Electrical Engineering and Industrial Computing.
After successing my diploma of technology, I managed to integrate one of France's Grandes Ecoles called CentraleSupelec (called Supélec before).
There, I study fundamental sciences (maths, physics...), and technical sciences (such as high frequency electronic, software engineering,…).Moreover, others classes deal with interesting subject such as artificial life, management control or 3D stynthesis.
However, I spend most of my time with associations : I am president of the video club (called Vmix), and vice-president of the school bar.
Inventory agent - CMB S.A. (Le Haillan (33), France)
Inventory of heating and cooling material, done over an entire day in June.
Agent of parcel sorting - La Poste (Bègles (33), France)
Sorting of non standard parcels (which were larger than 1,2m and/or heavier than 30kg) in a parcel sorting center, during July.
Sorting food for a charity - Les Restos du Coeur (Bruges (33), France)
Days of sorting food while a big collection all over France. We had to separate what had been collected according to the type. This took us an entire week-end in March.
Computer technician - Ets. Lévêques & fils (Cadillac (33), France)
Summer job I did in July, which consisted of setting up the system of barcode scanner and to clean and repair all the computers of the SME. I also had to make several Excel files to automate things.
Intern into the IBM research chair on advanced numerical methods for modelling encapsulated microelectronic components
In order to pass my diploma of technology, I did a 5-month internship in the 3IT (Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation) of Sherbrooke (Québec). I worked there into a 5-person team on the development of a thermo-mechanical modelling software, used by engineers from IBM Canada. I did several big updates of the software before using it to make a study of a new component from the CEA-Leti of Grenoble (France) which had a state-of-the-art architecture.
This internship allowed me to discover a lot of things, in my job which needed thermal and mechanical skills I had to learn, and also in my life by meeting people with a different culture. Indeed, I lived with Canadian people and I travelled a lot during my free time.
1-month work internship into the maintenance team EMASI (Équipe Maintenance Automatismes et Systèmes Industrielles) of RTE Limoges, one of the biggest French company which bring the electrical power from power plant to transformers.
In my studies at CentraleSupélec, I had to do a 1-month work internship at the end of my first year. So, I worked into the maintenance team, which allowed me to go into electrical transformer station to study how they work. This made me realize that there is an substantial evolution due to the transition to digital systems.
I watched and I helped technicians during their intervention on the field. When I was in my office, I worked on automating the system which was used to count the amount of kilometers driven by every car (thanks to Excel files and Google Drive).
Long project done during my 2nd year at CentraleSupélec.
The goal is to send the same music from one phone to multiple bluetooth speakers in the same time. This project is in progress.
This is a project I did with a coworker for 1 month and ½ at the end of my 1st year in CentraleSupélec.
This project consists of make a electromagnetic levitating lamp powered by induction (so wirelessly). It’s a project inspired from the LevLight project.
Badly, we only had the time to make the levitating part which allowed to make a magnet levitating for only a few seconds. All the circuit is entirely analogue on prototyping breadboard !
Website realised during a job for the « Junior-Entreprise » of CentraleSupélec (called J2S).
At the beginning, I only had to refactor the administration part (the backend) of the website for 2 months, but as the entire website were bad-coded, I had to start from scratch and rewrite all of it. This issue made the job duration dramatically increase and thus, I worked on it for 6 months.
The website is available following this URL : actu-solaire.fr
Software created for a member of my family. It allows to easily manage his bank account with the different typical operating (marking, calculation of the balance, bank reconciliation, …).
To be honest, it’s more a web app because it has been made using Node.js and a MongoDB database.
During my second year of diploma of technology, we had realized a robot-sumo, meaning a robot which has to weighs less than 500 grams and which has to be less than 10 cm square. This robot has to push its opponent out of the ring. The final goal of this project was to win the GEII department tournament in order to participate to the national tournament of robot-sumo.
So, we spent 3 months and ½ to create this robot from scratch. I lead a 6-person team, from conception to realization and final tests. This has been a great experience, very formative to me.
We lost during the final match of our department tournament which made us very proud of our little robot !
In my video club (the VMIX) on the Rennes campus, we had decided to change all our equipment which was analogue and aging to new state-of-the-art material using digital technologies. So, we had to re-examine our ways of operating for the video retransmission system, but also to put in a lot in cables in order to ensure the availability of service in the event of a failure.
This work had been very laborious, but it allows us to film and to broadcast HD video stream, easily editable in live (for video mixing for instance).
