The AI and Big Data architect must master 2 environments at the heart of this GRADEO :

  • The management of DATA, both structured with pre-definition of a fixed schema (SQL3, OQL), semi-structured with meta data (SparQL) and unstructured (NOSQL, New SQL) as well as the concepts of DATA WAREHOUSE and DATA LAKE.
  • The analysis of DATA with computer methods (Data Mining and OLAP), statistics (Machine learning in supervised or unsupervised mode) or based on AI with the fundamental approach of Deep Learning (multi-layer neural networks)

Job role: this GRADEO prepares you to become a Big Data architect.


This GRADEO includes 3 university courses taught by teachers from ESTIA engineering school and 1 industrial course in partnership with Oracle University. An academic course is generally divided into 6/7 modules, each one being delivered over a period of one week and 6/7 consecutive weeks. Each module represents 5 hours of student work per week.

  • Data and Codd Relational Model for structured databases
  • SQL2 for Relational Databases
  • Chris Date and Mike Stonebraker's Manifestations on the object relational model
  • OQL for object databases
  • SQL3 for hybrid (object-relational) databases
  • Data and NO SQL paradigms for unstructured databases (Datalakes and polystores)
  • Mathematical Tools
  • Basics of Machine Learning
  • Learning with Shallow Architectures
  • Learning with Deep Architectures
  • Computer Vision, Natural Language
  • Software Packages for Machine Learning
  • Strategic vision on big data economy around technical disruptions
  • N.O. SQL and NEW SQL

The academic courses are to be taken on the France Université Numérique platform and the professional courses on the learning platform of the industrial company concerned. For example, for this GRADEO, the professional course will be available on the Oracle University platform.
You only need a computer and an internet connection.
At the end of this program, you will be able to master the theory and practice of the concepts covered, from Big Data to Artificial Intelligence, through a rich learning experience in Machine Learning. Recruiters are looking for skills today, and we'll teach them to you!
Not one, but two certifications are delivered at the end of the program if you pass your academic and professional exams. ESTIA will issue you a certificate of achievement corresponding to 6 ECTS for the whole program, and if you pass your Oracle exam, you will have in your pocket a professional certification which is highly prized by recruiters in the tech world: Oracle Machine Learning Using Autonomous Database 2021 Specialist (1Z0-1096-21).  The certificate of achievement is therefore very valuable for you! 
ECTS is the acronym for European Credits Transfer System: these are the credits delivered by higher education institutions in Europe and allowing to validate a level of study. 
It is totally possible to extend the duration of your program!
