The Communication Systems Engineering Master Degree is a joint international Master program between Grenoble INP and Politecnico di Torino.
The primary goal of the Communication Systems Engineering Master degree is to train students for exciting and successful careers in telecommunications systems engineering. At the end of this training, students are able to design and supervise communication systems as simple as point to point communication links to more complex heterogeneous networks.
- Design of transmission systems: specification of components in a transmission system, integration, building up test-bench, validation of the complete system.
- Telecommunications network engineer: design of telecommunications networks, specification of network equipments, evaluation of network resource, integration and validation.
- Supervisor for networks and information systems: analysis and diagnostic of network problems, implementation of solutions, control of the results.
After several years of work experience.
- Telecommunications network architect : definition and design of the architecture of a telecommunication network and related service platforms.
Necessary abilities to start a successful career in Communication Systems Engineering (CSE) are located at the interface between hardware and software.
CSE students master devices, systems and techniques used in digital communication systems, including informatics, networks and signal processing. This large range of competencies provides the necessary skills to interact with top-level specialists in networks and equipments.
Management and soft skill courses allow our graduates to:
- Work in a cross-cultural environment, master one or several foreign
- Manage a project and a team, communicate efficiently.
- Build a business network.
Tuition and Fees: Approximately 750 euros per year
Language requirement: TOEFL score (or equivalent) required
Admission: To be admitted to the program, candidates must have previously completed their undergraduate studies and been awarded a Bachelor degree either in Science (BSc) or Engineering (BEng), preferably in the fields of electrical engineering, informatics, applied mathematics or electronics.
What motivated me was the international profile of this program: I had the opportunity to spend one year abroad but also to obtain a grant from Politecnico di Torino to register for the Master of Science of the University of Chicago, Illinois (comprising additional lectures and a research project). After the first year at Politecnico, I started a research project in the Electronics and Computer Engineering Department of Chicago University. I am currently doing my end of studies project at Roma, in a start-up, working in the field of RadioFrequency IDentification (RFID). I have been proposed this project by the French embassy in Italy.
I really enjoyed the international environment around CSE training, I met Spanish, Chinese and Indian people… My flatmates were Portuguese, Italian and French. All the courses are of high technical level and taught in English. This training is particularly looked for by companies. When I was interviewed for my end of studies project, I realised that it is a real added-value to follow an international curriculum.
Another significant advantage is that I can benefit from my American degree to work several years in the United-States. I would like to change countries regularly, meeting different people and discovering new cultures. This is really what I like, and CSE Master’s degree gave me the opportunity to do that.
Through this program, it is really interesting to learn a foreign language, enjoy another culture and find out new work methods. For example, in Italy, we have developed our self-sufficiency. When we came back to Grenoble, teachers were impressed about the quality of our work and particularly about our hindsight and autonomy.
This Master’s program is highly looked for by recruiters. The program being in two different countries is a real added-value for languages competences.
