This international Master's Degree aimed at future experts for the design, control, and deployment of high-performance communicating embedded systems as a basis of the IoT paradigm. This requires a wide knowledge including wireless, transmissions systems, antennas design, as well as some aspects of computer science.


The Wireless Embedded Technologies Master’s Degree proposes a new cross-disciplinary education paradigm, designed to provide high-level training for professional engineers who plan to become technical leaders in this burgeoning field. The purpose of this Master’s program is to provide a broad education in communicating embedded systems with the opportunity to specialize in areas that cover theoretical as well as practical aspects of embedded systems development.


  • to integrate knowledge, in an independent way and with a critical eye
  • to identify, formulate and handle complex problems within the area
  • to create technical solutions that fulfill human and societal needs
  • to show an ability independently or within a group, to create relevant connected objects.


Wireless Embedded Technologies is an academic curricular of the Automatic Electronics Electrical Energy Master's Degree. It is a two-year degree (M1 + M2) but only the second year (M2 Wireless Embedded Technologies) is accessible at Polytech Nantes.

Prerequisites for enrolment

  • Applicants should hold a degree which validates at least 4-years in higher education (equivalent to Bac +4 in France), in one of the following fields: computer science or engineering, information technology, telecommunication.

Prerequisites training

The Master’s Degree is a two-year degree. Students enroll for a two-semester program. A total of 60 ECTS must be validated to graduate. Equivalences can be considered (up to 15 ECTS) taking into account the student’s previous experience (Master’s and Bachelor’s courses).
