EURECOM engineering degree

A new Engineering Degree in Digital Science

  • For thirty years, EURECOM has been training engineering students from partner schools and universities: Télécom Paris, IMT Atlantique, Télécom SudParis and international universities.
  • From September 2022, EURECOM is accreditated by CTI (French accreditation Board for Engineering Schools) for a new Engineering Degree (Master of Science)
  • Courses are taught in English by international teachers

Strong links with Industry

Putting companies at the heart of engineering training is a strategic axis chosen by EURECOM since its creation.

  • EURECOM is located in Sophia Antipolis, the largest technology park in Europe
    • 23 000 companies
    • 36 300 jobs
    • 5 000 students
    • 4 500 researchers
    • 1 000 jobs created per year
  • EURECOM is a consortium whose members are major European universities and French and European companies. Industrial members contribute to the evolution of courses by issuing recommendations related to the emergence of new skills needs in their companies. 
  • To help students to find an internship to help them in their professional orientation, the school organizes, with the help of a team of students, the EURECOM Forum.  Each year students have a unique opportunity to initiate fruitful exchanges with companies that offer internships, recruitment and career prospects

Cutting-Edge Research Center

EURECOM is a renowned research center in digital sciences. Cutting-Edge research and innovation is based on the recruitment of international research professors having very diverse backgrounds.

The excellence of the research carried out at EURECOM has been rewarded with 3 ERCs during the last three years (one of the most selective European Council for Research grants in Europe). With 13% of researchers receiving an ERC, EURECOM ranks among the top 3 European research organizations

This excellence in research is reflected in the teaching, with courses in English on cutting-edge techniques in the fields of digital sciences and semester projects on a wide choice of industrial related topics.


International Studies

  • EURECOM is rated QS 5 stars
  • Courses are fully taught in English
  • 70% of international students, of more than 40 nationalities
  • 70% of international teachers
