CONTEXT - Connected Cars and ITS

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) promise to be one of the most dynamic and innovative specialization fields with a large expected industrial and business growth over the next decade. ITS aim at adding information and communication technologies to transportation infrastructures and vehicles in order to allow public agencies and transportation companies to improve

  • traffic safety by reducing accidents.
  • traffic efficiency by regulating and better distributing the traffic load, or smoothing tolling station congestions.
  • the carbon footprint towards green driving and logistics, or deploying fully electric vehicles.


The emphasis of the Post Master's degree is on:

  • Providing a balanced theoretical and practical expertise required by leading industries in the ITS domain.
  • Analysis and quantifications of the benefits of ITS on the environments and the society.
  • Understanding the challenges and required mechanisms to efficiently interconnect vehicles and transportation infrastructures.
  • Gaining a deep understanding on major application domains of ITS, such as traffic safety, traffic efficiency, or infotainment and comfort.
  • Formulation and modeling of problems typically observed in ITS applications,
  • investigation of the impact and benefits of vehicular communications in the different application areas of ITS.


The curriculum is very flexible (students can design their own program by choosing classes) and hands-on (practical exercices, projects, internships) for more relevance to market needs.

Internship (July-JANUARY)

6-month paid  industrial internship worth 30 ECTS

The last semester is made of a 6-month internship which provides students with a cutting-edge professional experience and a competitive edge.

The internship is to be carried out in a company in France or abroad. Students work on a development project under the supervision of a professor and an industrial mentor.

Students are integrated as part of the staff and receive a monthly allowance, the amount of the allowance depends on the company and position. EURECOM provides students with an updated database of paid internship opportunities offered by its parner companies. Students can use EURECOM's platform to directly send their application to companies.

Example of companies where students did their internship: ORANGE / MAGNETTI MARELLI / DLR (Germany)...

The automotive industry has never had so many challenges in the field of telecommunications than today : vehicle embedded networks, telematics for onboard entertainement, telediagnostic, car2car communications, etc. Studying at EURECOM gave me a solid technical background to contribute to practical solutions.
