Choose your area of focus
The Master’s cycle (2nd and 3rd years) may either be completed on the Paris-Saclay campus or on the EURECOM campus in Sophia Antipolis. Students must choose their curriculum when they take the Mines-Ponts Joint Entrance Exam. Students who enroll at Télécom Paris following a university technical degree must continue their studies in Paris. In both cases, you will obtain the same Télécom Paris degree and both programs are equally sought-after by businesses.
On Paris-Saclay campus

On Sophia-Antipolis – EURECOM Campus
The Sophia-Antipolis curriculum is carried out entirely in English and is a globally-minded program, as students have the opportunity to study with international students from EURECOM‘s prestigious international partner universities, who represent 75% of the student body.
Scientific and technical courses
The Master’s cycle is based on EUROCOM’s training model, in which credit units are referred to as « long modules » or « short modules ». The academic year is divided into semesters. The two-year Master’s Cycle is therefore made up of four semesters.
Students at EURECOM must choose one of the four following study tracks:
- Mobile communications
- Smart objects
- Data science and engineering
- Communication systems security
General education courses
In today’s world, engineers’ effectiveness is based not only on their scientific and technical expertise but also on their interpersonal, project management, team management skills, etc. Not only will they have to solve technical problems, but they must also be able to work as part of a team, deal with conflicts, discuss and defend budgets etc.
Over the course of their studies, students must take a number of required courses in these fields (Economics, Law, Social Sciences and Humanities) and may also opt to take additional courses to help them build these skills and gain the knowledge they need to be successful in their professional careers.
Due to the wide range of students’ countries of origin, language courses are organized based on levels and demand. Five languages are usually offered: German, English, Spanish, Italian and Japanese. Other languages may be offered upon request if enough students with the same level are interested.
The last semester is dedicated to the professional thesis, which is completed in a company, usually in a foreign country. EURECOM gives students the opportunity to carry out their studies entirely in English should they choose to do so.
