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
The Paris-Saclay engineering program focuses on the international dimension as part of a strong innovation ecosystem. Second-year courses include:
- Two study tracks (each of which represents 192 hours)
- Eight complementary courses (192 hours)
- Language courses and personal and professional skills training
- Two Athens weeks: one-week intensive course program offered by 15 European schools or universities
Paris-Saclay campus study tracks
Composed of teaching units in the 2nd year, which introduce students to options offered in the 3rd year.
Courses in the study track represent 24 hours or 48 hours each.
Students must choose 2 study tracks out of 14.
Networks, communications and cybersecurity
The Networks (RES) study track aims to prepare young engineers with an excellent background in matter of understanding and design of advanced networks suited to emerging IoT (Internet of Things), from both a practical and theoritical perspective.

The RIO track offers in-depth training in mobile networks and the Internet of Things (IoT).
While cellular networks have profoundly changed our communication usages, the Internet of Things (IoT) is envisioned to revolutionise health, industry, transportation, cities or entertainment. Mobile networks and IoT, are therefore the two major components of the fifth generation to come.

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.
