Partnerships

 

UM6P-CS partners with leading research institutes and professionals from around the world to provide high-quality scientific research and teaching such as Columbia University, MIT, EPFL, National Universities ...

 

Academic staff

 

A competent and committed teaching team mastering the various innovative methods and practices allowing:

  • to give meaning to the student's work;
  • to clarify and achieve its objectives;
  • to have the right to make mistakes;
  • to be an actor in his learning.

 

UM6P-CS  is home to several national and international teaching fellows. professors, researchers, award-winning scientists,  authors of leading textbooks and publications in their fields. 

 

Fully available to the students, parents and work closely with all school stakeholders. 

 

 

Pedagogy

 

In the heart of the green city of Benguerir, near Marrakech, the school is hosted in the Africa’s largest data center facility.

 

A safe space to innovate

UM6P ecosystem allows a learning based on experimentation through

  1. Vast station,
  2. Laboratories and Fablabs
  3. "Living Labs"; work platforms, on a real scale (mining facilities, farms, factories, urban projects, startups, associations etc.), in which our students learn about the field and put their learning into practice.

 

Our Data center host the most performant African Supercalculator Center.

This space is made available for students and researchers and helps also startups to develop and test prototypes of their products and services.

  1. 1000 m2 managed by UM6P-CS
  2. high-performance computer (HPC), More than 3 petaflops

The Company, if it offers the creator the opportunity to flourish while ensuring his future, also involves the implementation of skills essential to his success. From an innovation or a creative idea of ​​service, an entrepreneur and his business can be born but the UM6P intends to guide, support and make this initiative more reliable so that it is transformed, developed and perpetuated for the benefit of the greatest number and more particularly for the benefit of its creator.

An essential value of UM6P, innovation is initiated, stimulated and transformed into a solution or service via incubation and acceleration programs for start-ups and a buoyant ecosystem made available to creators to support them.
