Language of Instruction : English

Master Mobile Computing Systems

Responsibles

This Master provides a comprehensive set of competences in Communication Systems: from physical layer (wireless communications theory and implementation aspects), mobile networking (based on IPV6), to applications (for smartphone, tablets...).Sophia-Antipolis is considered a major European region for telecommunications research and development in southern France. EURECOM has established over the years a synergy with the local industrial environment on advanced research topics. 

 

Key Words:Wireless Communications, Mobile Computing, Networking, Mobile Applications and Services, communication theory, Signal Processing and learning for networks.

OBJECTIVES

  • Provide the theoretical background and the applied know-how for engineers in Mobile Computing Systems.
  • Learn to tackle problems from a system viewpoint, taking vertical cut and following a cross-layer approach.
  • Acquire and master tools and methods to follow the rapid evolution of technology and provide solutions leading to future generations of systems.
  • Acquire managerial knowledge to provide innovation in Mobile Communications Systems (Project Management, Organization, innovation management...).

 

Awarded Degree: Master's degree fully recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. The degree is co-delivered by EURECOM and the INSTITUT MINES TELECOM (French leading consortium of the best Engineering Schools in France).The degree allows for further Phd Studies.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible, Candidates need

  • Bachelor's Degree (minimum 3 years of higher education) in a relevant field
  • Strong foundation in mathematics
  • Certified B2 level in English. No requirement are needed in French as the program is fully taught in English. 

 

For our next 2021 fall intake (September 2021), EURECOM and the OpenAirInterface Software Alliance (www.openairinterface.org), have combined their forces to jointly establish a new

EURECOM 6G Wireless Excellence scholarship program

open to highly motivated students who wish to pursue a Master of Science in Mobile computing systems and who can demonstrate their potential.

Three Criteria:

  • Holding a Bachelor’s degree in a related field (Computer science, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Engineering, etc) from a recognized top university

  • Minimum Overall GPA score of 3.5/4 (Or CGPA of 7/10) or belonging to the top 10% of your graduating class

  • Demonstrate a proven interest in some of the fields of specialization: Wireless Communications, Mobile Computing, Networking, Mobile Applications and Services, communication theory, Signal Processing and learning for networks (a short letter of explanation will be required).

 

For the 18 months curriculum Master degree specifically, the candidates need:

  • A 4-years Bachelor’s Degree (minimum of 4 years of higher education) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics
  • Demonstrable and strong foundations in Mathematics,  Digital and Mobile Communications
  • Certified B2 level in English. No requirement are needed in French as the program is fully taught in English.

Semester Project 6
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 100 hours of individual work per semester. A defense is organized at the end of each semester. Projects provide students with hands-on skills by allowing them to put concepts into practice.
