Profile: David Provoost (France)

ISG 2016 David ProvoostMy name is David Provoost, I am a 24 years old French guy young graduate from engineering school in 2015. I am an electronical engineer specialized in embedded systems. I have done my graduation internship of engineering school at Altran Technologies in Strasbourg, in electronical development and electronical conception of medical imaging.

After my engineering diploma I wanted to learn more about companies in general in order to get a dual expertise in both technique and management. The reason why I enrolled myself at ISG after 5 years of engineering school is simple. The technical experiences I’ve had, either at school or in a company, made me work with a product on a concrete project, but never beyond that. It is totally normal, but it was then very frustrating to create something you know very well and not follow its evolution once it could be launched on the market.

At the age of 10 I moved to France. There I did a classic French education. I did my collège and lycée in Versailles. This where I obtained my Bacchalauréat in business administration.

From there I followed up with a BA in computer science at the University of Versailles but decided to stop after a few months.

I wanted more human interaction but still with a technical side.
