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 10 (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.
