  • The professional training in security will be offered as a complement to an advanced program in computer networking, mobile services and imaging.
  • Get the skills to tackle security problems encountered in networking, distributed software applications and image processing. 
  • The paid 6-month internship provides a cutting-edge professional experience and a future competitive asset.

EURECOM is proud to have signed double degree agreements with prestigious partner universities.

Double degree students have the opportunity to study at EURECOM for their last year of Master  in one of the two specialties (Digital Security or Data science) of our Master degree in Computer science.

A special program has been set with a wider choice of courses for the Double Degree students at EURECOM: after 2 semester of courses and their master thesis at EURECOM, these students will be awarded with the 2 diplomas: The master degree of EURECOM and the corresponding Master of Science at their home university.

Applicants are also invited to consult the FAQ section of the website.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Students need to validate a certain amount of credits per Teaching Unit each semester. Please consult the Academic Schedule and the Frequently Asked Questions for more Information about the schedule organisation.

Language Unit ECTS: 1.00

(French, or another language if the student is already fluent in French)

Semester Project Unit ECTS: 10.00

Supervised Semester Projects are based on real-case studies of industrial relevance. They combine a blend of theoretical and practical work (developing new prototypes and tools, testing new technologies, assessing current systems and solutions…). Students can work individually or in group of 2/3. The expected workload is 200 hours of individual work per semester. A defense is organized at the end. Projects provide students with hands-on skills by allowing them to put concepts into practice. (200h)

SEMESTER 9 - SPRING  (30 ECTS)  - March  - August

RESEARCH / INDUSTRIAL INTERNSHIP (Paid) Unit ECTS: 30.00

The internship is to be carried out in a company or lab in France or abroad. It allows students to get a hands-on experience and ease their entry into the job market. Students work on a research/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 helps students find an internship by providing an updated database of paid internship opportunities offered by companies.
