TRACK: REAL TIME EMBEDDED SYSTEMS - EMBEDDED COMPUTER SCIENCE
The objective of this track is to present the techniques currently used for the design and the verification of embedded systems, and more especially real-time embedded systems. The track relies on several courses covering various topics: the design of real-time systems and the architecture of a real-time operating systems (OSEK/VDX standard is used); the real-time scheduling policies and the associated implementation; tools for the modeling and verification of real-time systems: Petri networks, finite state automata and time automata.
TRACK: SIMULATION AND SUPERVISION
This track aims at introducing the modern tools and methods for the performance analysis, simulation, control and supervision of discrete event systems, in particular in production systems and on-line management. The lectures include the modeling and supervisory control of discrete-event systems, ressource management, sizing and synthesis, just in time control, hybrid systems and their optimal control, discrete-event off-line and on-line simulation and applications to flexible manufacturing, dynamic scheduling and rescheduling, on-line observation and computer-aided decision making.
- Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Science or Equivalent. (Students in their final year of undergraduate study may be admitted on the condition that their bachelor's degrees are awarded before they enroll at Centrale Nantes.)
- Applicants whose native language is not English are required to pass a recognized international English test such as TOEFL (score 220 CBT, 550 PBT, 80 IBT), Cambridge Advanced English Test (score B or higher), IELTS (score 6.5 or higher), TOEIC (800) or other English equivalent test.
An applicant who carried out his study in English is eligible, passing a recognized test provides him more chance to be accepted (official confirmation letter is needed). The English test result must be sent before the deadline of application.
