In 2012, EURECOM opened two Post Master's degrees in booming sectors: Security for Computer Systems and Communication and Communication for Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Doctoral program

EURECOM is involved with several doctoral schools and offers PhD students a central role by placing them at the very heart of the research dynamic. They benefit from a high-quality academic and working environment. They can do exploratory research on emerging subjects in the broad field of communication systems.

Innovation and transfer toward industry

Opening new paths towards future and emerging technologies, and establishing partnerships with companies to enhance knowledge transfer to tomorrow's industries are two keys strategies of EURECOM's policy.

EURECOM supports its students' and teachers' start-up projects with the Telecom parisTech EURECOM incubator.



Challenges ahead

  • Opening towards more high-level universities to reinforce network and international collaboration.
