WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Acquire solid core science knowledge

Asset n°2

Choose from four majors addressing key current issues in the field

Asset n°3

Benefit from a practical approach based on individual and group projects

This first year of the Master’s program in Electrical Engineering for Communications provides students with courses in the basic sciences in English, as well as a French language course. Students can choose from four majors that will set the path for their specialization in the second year.

The first major is Telecommunication Networking and Multimedia (TNM). It aims to provide the foundations to understand, practice, and contribute to the development of new-generation communication techniques and networking, content coding and delivery systems such as 5G networks, connected devices, machine-to-machine communication, as well as the need for very low-delay and high-reliability networks.

The second major is DATA Analysis and Pattern Classification (Datapac). It provides the tools to process all types of real data captured by sensors. Reinforced and extended in the second year, this program enables students to model real and noisy data, retrieve information from very large databases, and  design complex systems based on these techniques. It has many applications including telecommunications, medical imaging, virtual reality, telemonitoring, biometrics, bio-informatics, environmental sciences, banking, insurance and data mining.

The major in Electrical and Optical Engineering (EOE) allows students to develop original thinking and the ability to anticipate. The program is based on multidisciplinary application fields in both electronics and optics. It encompasses core training addressing fundamental aspects, as well as focusing on specific technical skills in different application such as communications, sensors, defense and space, automotive and information technology.

The major in Microelectronics (MIE) addresses CMOS integrated technologies and the emergence of the micro/nano technologies, as well as the complexity of today’s integrated systems. The program covers new technological possibilities including the implementation of high-performance, high-value, multi-domain integrated systems. It provides students with training to address system performance optimization based on specifications obtained by co-designing the different parts. This requires a good knowledge of all the devices used in the system.

Objectives

This first-year Master’s program allows students to:

  • Establish a foundation to build on in the specialized second year of the Master
  • Acquire knowledge in computer science, mathematics, scientific communication methods, as well as French
  • Benefit from a practical approach based on individual and group projects

To complete the Master’s degree, first-year students can enter one of the following second-year programs:

  • Major in Telecommunication Networking and Multimedia (TNM) major:
    • Master Year 2 in Virtual Augmented Reality (VAR)
    • Master Year 2 in Multimedia Networking (MN)
    • Master Year 2 in Information Processing: Machine Learning, Communications, and Security (MICAS)
  • Major is DATA analysis and Pattern Classification (Datapac) major:
    • Master Year 2 in Information Processing and Data Exploitation (TRIED)
  • Major in Electrical and Optical Engineering (EOE) major:
    • Master Year 2 in Optical Network and Photonic Systems (ROSP)
    • Master Year 2 in Wireless Communication Systems, Radio Architecture and Radio Infrastructure (Radio Systems)
  • Major in Microelectronics (MIE):
    • Master 2 in Integration Circuits Systems (ICS)
    • Master 2 in Embedded System and Information Processing (SETI)

After completing the second year of the Master’s program, students will be equipped to:

  • Pursue a PhD in an academic laboratory or company
  • Occupy a position in an industry R&D department
