Objectives

For the technologies are evolving quickly in this field, well-established competencies in physics, technology and design are provided to the students.

This specialized teaching give the students a competency covering both the microtechnologies used and the design aspects of the communication systems. The knowledge in this field make many levels appear. Firstly, well-established theoretical knowledge in physics are provided, (materials and component physics), as well as in communication systems and in devices of microwave frequencies. Then, methodological aspects are broached, with the methods of analogue and numerical circuits design and the awareness of the problems of electromagnetic compatibility in the circuits and systems. Finally, an experimental know-how is acquired, technologically, in mesures, modeling and IT tools.

This specialized teaching has both a vocational guidance and a research one. However, the vocational guidance is more important.

The advantages of the course

The course is supported by the strong competencies of the ESYCOM laboratoy in the taught subjects. A part of the technical educations are taught in English that which prepare the students to their entering in the industrial or research world.

Targeted competencies

The goal of this course is to train the students in the fields of advanced electronic systems design, such as the systems dedicated to the telecommunications and those which include advanced and miniaturised  sensors (spatial, aéronautic and automotive industries, medical instrumentation…). The important aspect which will be accentuated are the technology, design methods, simulation of devices, reliability and quality studies and product industrialization.

Knowledge and competencies to be developed :

  • Theoretical knowledge : materials physics for the microtechnology, component physics, communication systems and devices of microwave frequencies.
  • Methodological knowledge : analogue and numerical circuits design, electromagnetic compatibility in the circuits and systems.
  • Practical knowledge : cleanroom technologies, microwave frequencies measurements, modeling (components, mechanics, microwave frequency), softwares dedicated to the circuits design, programming.
  • Connaissances pratiques : technologies de salle blanche, mesures hyperfréquences, modélisation (mécanique, hyperfréquence ou des composants), logiciels dédiés à la conception de circuits, programmation. 

Organisation of the course and possible paths

This course is provided as an initial education, a continuing education or an apprenticeship. It splits up on two periods : the first one for practical and theoritical classes from October to Mars and the second one for internship in firms or laboratories from April to September.

Main subjects

Design of analogue and numerical circuits, circuits of microwave frequency, programmable circuits, electronic components, manufacturing technologies of microdevices.

Options of the course

In your first year, three teaching units have to be chosen among the following five : « Application of signal processing », « Introduction to remote sensing », «Introduction to telecommunication networks », « Microwave frequency measurement and measuring systems », « Introduction to business management », « Scientific calculation ».

In your second year, one unit has to be chosen among the following three : « Microwave and millimetric integrated circuits », « Antenna and propagation », « Business and project management ».

Internationalisation

As part of an agreement with ESIEE-Paris, some classes are pooled between this specialized teaching and a Master’s degree course of the school. This account to 76 hours of class given in English.

Furthermore, the students have the possibility to undertake their internship abroad and for this, they benefit from the Department of International Relations (Service des Relations Internationales) at the university.

Job prospects

This Master programme prepares to the job of designer of circuits and electronic systems. The holders of this degree can claim an employment in the field of telecommunications as well as those which need circuits and advanced, miniaturized sensors (transport, habitat, medical applications).

The types of jobs available after this course are : research engineer, project manager in firms, researcher, university lecturer and researcher.

The business sector for this course are :

  • Telecommunication field : development of communication devices, control of the quality of connections.
  • Sectors in need of circuits and advanced, miniaturized sensors (automotive, spatial and aéronautic industries, medical instrumentation…)
  • Industrial area not specialized in electronics but in need of the use of sensors (quality assurance, tests). Furthermore, depending on the type of internship undertaken by the student, an orientation towards research is also possible. In that case, the sectors, where the graduates can hold a position, are the R&D sectors, public or private, as well as education and research, in universities or schools.
