Master in Mobile Computing Systems


Program Description

Master in Mobile Computing Systems


The Master in Mobile Communications is designed for those wishing to develop the necessary competences in the field of mobile communications: from physical layer (wireless communications theory and implementation aspects), mobile networking (based on IPV6), to applications (for smartphone, tablets…).

Master Students will have the opportunity to work with the OpenAirInterface, an open-source based experimental research initiative and open-forum for innovation in the area of digital radio communications, which is increasingly used by many top international universities and companies.


BONNET, Christian



The MSc MobCom aims at providing the theoretical background and the applied know-how for engineers in Mobile Communication Systems.

The goal is to tackle the problems from a system viewpoint, taking a vertical cut and following a cross-layer design approach. This corresponds to both the most recent trend in research and to the most desired professional profile for engineers in this field. In fact, it is now well-recognized that problems related to physical layer transmission techniques (RF design, signal processing algorithms, channel coding and modulation), and upper layer protocols (link layer control, multiple-access, routing), that were traditionally treated in a separate fashion in wired networks, must be treated jointly in mobile communication networks.


Sophia-Antipolis is considered as a major European region for telecommunications research and development in southern France. EURECOM, which is a consortium of academic and industrial partners, has established over the years a synergy with the local industrial environment on advanced research topics.

During their Master of Science, students will benefit form the expertise of renowned industrial partners (Alcatel, Bouygues, SFR, France Télécom R&D, Philips, Thales, ST Microelectronics, Hitachi, Texas Instruments, IBM, BMW, SAP, Sharp, ESA) as well as the use of cutting edge technological platforms within EURECOM's Wireless Communication laboratory.
