Graduate School and Research Center In communication systems

Master degree in Mobile Computing Systems

 Applications for FALL 2016 are closed. Applications for 2017-2019 Intake will be resumed in October 2016.

 

 

This Master, jointly delivered by EURECOM and INSTITUT MINES TELECOM, 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…).

Objectives

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 Sin 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 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. 

Students will have the opportunity to work with the OpenAirInterface, one of the World’s Most Complete open sources LTE base station and core network implemented by EURECOM, which is increasingly used by top international universities and companies.

 

Language of instruction : English

HIGHLIGHTS 

 

 

TeSTIMONY

My experience at EURECOM has been fantastic. The school opened a new dimension of life to me. The level of education has been really tough yet enjoyable. I feel myself really lucky to have been a student of this prestigous institute. Studying in a multicutural environment here is really an added experience. After spending this time in this top level european institute I really dont regret for not going to US for my MS studies. I would really wanna come back here again after some years of industry experience for my Phd.

Thanks & Regards ,
