Cryptography, quantum information, coding
For those who like
- Mathematics in general, and are not afraid of abstraction
This track offers an introduction to several IT and telecommunication fields: formal calculation, correction coding, cryptography and quantum information theory. This track is primarily based on core mathematical foundations, especially algebraic concepts.
These areas are first examined from a theoretical perspective. This includes purely mathematical courses (arithmetic, finite fields, algebraic curves) and courses combining computer science and mathematics or even physics (correction coding, cryptography, quantum information). The modules are taught in traditional lesson-seminar form, with around fifteen students per class. Certain modules can also take the form of projects or practical sessions on machines (computational algebra).
Language of instruction: English
After the track
3rd year technological innovation at Télécom Paris
Master’s-Engineering Dual Degree
- Machine learning, communications, and security (IP Paris)
- Algorithmics and Foundations of Programming (Univ. Paris-Saclay)
This track opens the door to research, with the most natural next steps being a Master 2 followed by a thesis. However, it could also provide helpful theoretical insight for students who wish to pursue a career as an engineer specializing in communication systems networks or security.
With less than fifteen students and an excellent faculty members, ACCQ is a flagship Télécom track. It’s the ideal choice for those who wish to continue their algebra studies after their entrance exams!
