This Master provides a comprehensive set of competences in Communication Systems: from physical layer (wireless communications theory and implementation aspects), mobile networking (based on IPV6), to applications (for smartphone, tablets...).Sophia-Antipolis is considered a major European region for telecommunications research and development in southern France. EURECOM has established over the years a synergy with the local industrial environment on advanced research topics.
Awarded Degree: Master's degree fully recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The degree is co-delivered by EURECOM and the INSTITUT MINES TELECOM (French leading consortium of the best Engineering Schools in France).The degree allows for further Phd Studies.
Students need to validate a certain amount of credits per Teaching Unit each semester. The curriculum offers great flexibility by offering many electrive courses. Please consult the Academic Schedule and the Frequently Asked Questions for more Information about the schedule organisation.
EURECOM is part of a high profile ERASMUS MUNDUS Joint Master's program - SECCLO.
SECCLO-Master's programme in Security and Cloud Computing (120 ECTS) is a two-year engineering programme which gives students a broad understanding of the latest and future technologies for secure cloud and mobile computing systems. Students will gain both practical engineering knowledge and theoretical insights into secure systems engineering, distributed application development, network and service architectures, and cloud and mobile platforms.
The 120 ECTS credits will be divided into two blocks: two semesters of courses (60 ECTS) will be provided by the entry university Aalto. After the first year, the student move to an exit university (including EURECOM) where they are able to specialize (30 ECTS).
The fourth semester is dedicated to thesis research and writing (Master's thesis, 30 ECTS). Summer school and internship are included into the programme.
The programme leads into two national Master of Science degrees (double degree) from those universities where the student has completed his/her studies.
2nd year Specialisation in Big Data security at EURECOM
The EURECOM specialization aims at providing a solid knowledge of security in cloud computing and networking combined with practical design and management skills. The students learn how to identify threats, vulnerabilities and privacy problems in networks and cloud systems including the Internet of Things. They learn to integrate security solutions to a cloud computing platform and explore methods for holding cloud stakeholders accountable for the privacy and confidentiality of data in cloud systems.
The curriculum has a hands-on approach that combines laboratory work with classroom education, makes use of high-profile industry speakers to introduce the latest technologies, and includes a supervised semester-long team project on a topic of industrial relevance. One focus area is communication and organizational skills together with project planning and implementation competences. A mandatory management course fosters an entrepreneurial mindset, and the elective courses enable students to further explore data science or networking.
