WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Pursue a PhD or career in industry

Asset n°2

Acquire solid practical experience through an internship

Asset n°3

Acquire cutting-edge knowledge in electronic design

The second year of the Master in Integration, Circuits and Systems aims to train future researchers and engineers with advanced knowledge in electronics design across cutting-edge domains like ultra-high frequencies, devices and systems for telecommunications, microelectronics, microsystems (MEMS/NEMS), embedded analog and digital systems, high-performance data converters (ADCs, DACs) and hardware-based signal processing.

The first semester encompasses diverse courses and a project. During the second semester, students will complete an internship of 4 to 6 months in industry or one of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris laboratories where they will be immersed in their field of choice and interact with top-level researchers.

Objectives

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

  • Acquire the necessary knowledge for any cutting-edge activity in electronics design including theoretical and practical knowledge with CAD design tools for analog or digital systems
  • Gain more specialized knowledge with courses in RF circuits and systems, mixed analog/digital integrated circuits and nanoarchitectures
  • Deal with concrete design problems through project-oriented study units and acquire the corresponding design experience
  • Broaden their knowledge and acquire solid practical experience

After graduation, students could pursue an industrial or academic career:

  • Position in an industry research and development department in microelectronics or broader fields of analog or digital electronic systems design for applications like embedded systems, smart sensors, instrumentation and telecommunications
  • PhD studies in microelectronics or other fields studied in the chosen major: microsystems, nano-architectures, embedded systems, RF systems, high-performance Data Converters or hardware-based signal processing

Course details will be available when admission opens.

Admission requirements

Academic prerequisites

  • Completion of the first year of a Master in Electrical Engineering at Institut Polytechnique de Paris or equivalent in France or abroad
