MSc Networks and Telecommunication, Internet of Things (IoT) track _ DD 18 months

Language of Teaching: English 



HÄRRI Jérôme

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a new stage in the digital revolution, fully contributing to the construction of a digital society. Several sectors of the digital society use or will use the internet of objects to improve deployment, exploitation and industrialization procedures. These include intelligent transport, smart grids, smart city, industry 4.0, and so on. The issues concerning the mastery of the technologies and processes around the internet of objects are enormous and require a very high level of expertise with cutting-edge skills in multi disciplinary areas. 

Key Words: Sensors, Actuators, Low-energy communication, Big Data, Data Semantic, Machine Learning, Security, Business Intelligence


  • Design tools for processing and analyzing large amounts of data from sensors;
  • Design and develop IoT applications and services adapted to industrial needs
  • Understand and design communication mechanisms adapted to the constraints of the sensors (energy consumption, lack of computing capacities)
  • Acquire dual competences technical courses in advanced fields (data exploitation, software development, communication networks in constrained environments, Machine Learning, sensor security) associated with courses in Innovation, Project Management, Entrepreneurship ...

EURECOM is proud to have signed a double degree agreement with  prestigious universities.

Double Degree students have the opportunity to study at EURECOM for their last year of Master  in one of the two specialties (Iot or Intelligent communication systems) of our  master degree in Networks and Telecommunications.

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.


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.
