Communications And Networking - Major Networking



In today's world, mobile networks form one of the most active areas in terms of growth and innovation. Mobile devices are found today in your pocket (smartphone) and your desk (PC). Tomorrow, they will be found in your car (autonomous, fueled by 5G), bike, train, even on your road and in your kitchen (as sensors/connected objects forming Internet of Wireless Things) and even on your clothes (wearable devices) and perhaps skin.  

Huge swaths of industry (connected robotics and connected industry 4.0) and society (smart city, smart agriculture) will have their critical operation fully depend on network connectivity. This was not the case before. 

The challenges to communicate, organize and exploit all the data carried by such devices is simply enormous. Would you like to be at the forefront of this new wireless revolution?  

Due to the vast range of expertise needed in this area, the Communication and Networking track will be the first at EURECOM to offer a choice of two distinct “Majors” with its own set of mandatory courses. 

Communications and Networking –Major in Networking

Communications and Networking –Major in Communications 

While both majors will give you a nice overview of challenges and key knowledge in this area, there will be some differences:

 The Networking Major will give you some expertise in several inter-related networking areas, ranging from networking protocols (radio resource and mobility management), software defined networking (network slicing), to application development (such as android apps on smartphones). 

The Communication Major emphasize the fundamental concepts for efficient  transmission, statistical data processing, data coding, radio engineering, and machine learning  for tomorrow’s networks (like 6G). You will be able to control the cursor between theory and practice under some of the world experts in this area. 

Both Majors will offer a comprehensive and interdisciplinary view of mobile communications and networking to make you a desirable asset to companies and labs or even launch your own startup in this exciting area.
