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 program 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.


  • Requirement: a Master's degree or a degree equivalent in a relevant discipline.
  • Duration:  15 months, three semesters: two academic semesters from October to June and one professional paid internship in a company from July to December)
  • Methodology: lectures, seminars, exercices of practical application (part of the curriculum is made of a personally supervised project), teamworks...
  • Academic Regulations: please find the link to access to the academic regulations.
  • Language: the curriculum is entirely taught in English. French classes will be delivered throughout the academic year to help students adapt to their French environment.

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.
