From the corporate world
Interview of Deepika Ragavane – International Master's student (graduation year 2013)

It was my dream to pursue my studies in France in the field of Computer Science and Information Technology. EPITA met my expectations and wishes: the school is impressive and full of challenges. This is a good opportunity to apply my knowledge and learn new technologies. I am fortunate indeed to be trained by experienced teachers.
After my specialization period I was recruited by one of the largest companies in France to do my internship for a period of 6 months: Thales. It was an incredible experience for me. My internship experience will surely lead me into the real world of computing as a software engineer in the near future.
I look forward to becoming a project manager in a multinational company. I was born in Pondicherry, India. This is a splendid mix of Indian and French cultures. I lived in a multicultural environment that motivated me to develop my experience in the French culture.
For me, it is a challenge to study and work in an international environment. This is also an opportunity to know the culture, fantasy and French fashion, to enrich myself and expose myself to the world. This international experience has enabled me to realize my dream.
