EURECOM

Introduction

EURECOM is a graduate school and a internationally recognized research center in communication systems. It was founded with the legal status of an EIG consortium (Economic Interest Group). This private status gives EURECOM the advantage of being highly flexible and reactive at both the organizational and administrative levels.


In 2012, EURECOM has moved to a new building of 5,000 m2 on a ICT Campus, located in Sophia Antipolis, the largest European Science Park ("Telecom Valley") on the French Riviera. Sophia Antipolis is internationally recognized as a leading centre of "New Information and Communications Technologies" in particular in the telecommunications sector. In Sophia Antipolis, the interaction between research and industry is particularly strong. The Science Park hosts over 1300 entities: companies, private and public research centres in information technologies, major network users, operators, service companies, standardization organizations as well as SMEs which result either from research activities or from the reorganization of larger businesses.
EURECOM also chose to open its recruitment to foreign teachers and students (more than half of the students come from outside of France, and the courses are totally taught in English) and to adopt the European curriculum.

MSc

Master in Data Science and Engineering

Campus Full time September 2016 France Biot

The “Big Data” phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage and processing. [+]

COORDINATOR Pietro MICHIARDI DESCRIPTION The “Big Data” phenomenon is rooted in the field of data science and engineering, which aims at developing both computer and mathematical tools for data storage and processing. An increasing volume of data are daily produced by modern day industrial processes (in fields such as energy, intelligent transport systems, aviation industry and many others…), and fuelled by the rise of multimedia tools and the Internet of Things in our daily life. The master in Data Science and Engineering aims at combining computer and statistical sciences to develop cutting-edge and fundamental tools to efficiently address applied issues related to data processing. Beyond its importance in scientific research and industry, data analysis helps develop methods, algorithms and software able to extract value out of huge masses of heterogonous data with several dimensions. The curriculum offers a cohesive blend of technical classes in data mining, software engineering, distributed systems coupled with fundamentals in Business, Innovation and Project Management to develop profiles which are highly valued by corporate recruiters. APPLICATIONS Applications for 2016-2018 intake will open in September 2015. APPLICATION DEADLINES The Admission Committee will organize several monthly admission sessions from November to June 2016 to assess applications. Please look at the dates below. Please be aware that the sooner students apply, the easier it will be to help them prepare their stay in France, (more housing opportunities will be offered). Please also bear in mind scholarship deadlines .

Master in DIGITAL SECURITY

Campus Full time 2 years September 2016 France Biot

The Master in Digital Security is designed for those wishing to develop a career as an expert / project manager in the growing field of computer security. [+]

The Master in Communications and Computer Security is designed for those wishing to develop a career as an expert / project manager in the growing field of computer security. COORDINATOR(S) MOLVA, Refik DESCRIPTION Objective The MSc ComSec aims at providing a solid background in the design and management of security in major areas of communications and computer science. The professional training in security will be offered as a companion to an advanced program on computer networking, mobile services and imaging. The graduates will thus be able to tackle security problems encountered in networking, distributed software applications and in image processing. Various technical areas ranging from cryptographic mechanisms to intrusion detection and practical countermeasures against network attacks through watermarking of images and biometric identification techniques will be addressed in several courses and laboratories. Environment Apart from increased connectivity and a broad range of new services, the advent of new telecommunication and information technologies in the last decade has also given technically advanced intruders the opportunity to carry out a variety of attacks, thereby threatening the integrity of the infrastructure and violating the privacy of users. Ranging from simple spoofing or tampering of personal data to distributed denial of service attacks jeopardizing global network operation, these attacks are even viewed as the major impediment to further development of business applications over Internet. As the main countermeasure to these problems, security of communications and computer systems became an important requirement both for users of on-line services and for technical specialists involved in the design of networks and applications. Security mechanisms therefore are embedded as an essential building block of all computer and communications systems at early stages of the design. Recently designed systems like GSM, Mobile IP or the WiFi standards all include sophisticated security mechanisms based on encryption and key management as opposed to their earlier counterparts like the original Internet protocols that were severely lacking security functions. APPLICATION Applications for 2016-2018 will open in September 2015 until June 2016. A 3 year Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, computer science, telecommunications and a B2 level in English are required.

Master in Mobile Computing Systems

Campus Full time 1 year September 2016 France Biot

The Master 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…). [+]

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. COORDINATOR(S) BONNET, Christian DESCRIPTION Objectives 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. Environment 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. APPLICATION Applications for 2015-2016 are now closed. A 4 years Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, computer science, telecommunications and a B2 level in English are required.
