Post Master's Degree in Connected Vehicles (C-ITS)



The Post Master's degree in Communications for ITS offers the necessary knowledge required by engineers and managers to design Connected Cars / Connected Mobility applications to fully apprehend the innovations and unique opportunities of the Vehicular Communications industry.

CONTEXT - Connected Cars and ITS

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) promise to be one of the most dynamic and innovative specialization fields with a large expected industrial and business growth over the next decade. ITS aim at adding information and communication technologies to transportation infrastructures and vehicles in order to allow public agencies and transportation companies to improve

  • traffic safety by reducing accidents.
  • traffic efficiency by regulating and better distributing the traffic load, or smoothing tolling station congestions.
  • the carbon footprint towards green driving and logistics, or deploying fully electric vehicles.


The emphasis of the Post Master's degree is on:

  • Providing a balanced theoretical and practical expertise required by leading industries in the ITS domain.
  • Analysis and quantifications of the benefits of ITS on the environments and the society.
  • Understanding the challenges and required mechanisms to efficiently interconnect vehicles and transportation infrastructures.
  • Gaining a deep understanding on major application domains of ITS, such as traffic safety, traffic efficiency, or infotainment and comfort.
  • Formulation and modeling of problems typically observed in ITS applications,
  • investigation of the impact and benefits of vehicular communications in the different application areas of ITS


To be eligible, Candidates need a Master's degree (minimim 5 years of higher education) or equivalent and a certified B2 level in English. A Master's degree in a relevant field is expected (Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications, Communication Engineerings, Computer Science...) with a good foundation in Maths.


The curriculum is very flexible as it offers many elective courses allowing students to design their own program according to their expectations and projects.

The approach to learning is very hands-on (practical exercices, projects, internships) to facilitate entry in the job market.

Semester Project 5
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.

Semester Project 5
See description of the Project above.  

Internship (July-JANUARY)


The last semester is made of a 6-month internship which provides students with a cutting-edge professional experience and a competitive edge.

The internship is to be carried out in a company in France or abroad. Students work on a 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 provides students with an updated database of paid internship opportunities offered by its parner companies. Students can use EURECOM's platform to directly send their application to companies.

Example of companies where students did their internship: ORANGE / MAGNETTI MARELLI / DLR (Germany) / AMADEUS...
