EURECOM is proud to have signed a double degree agreement with Politecnico di Torino, one of its most prestigious members.

Polito students have the opportunity to study at EURECOM for their last year of Master  in one of the four specialties (Iot, Intelligent communication systems, Digital Security or Data science) of our 2 master degree in Computer science or Networks and Telecommunications.

A special program has been set with a wider choice of courses for the Polito 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 Polito.

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


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.

The Master obtained the SecNumedu certification by the National Cybersecurity Agency of France (ANSSI) and the 3IA Label.

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


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.
