Summary


Signal Image Communication Multimedia (SICOM) offers you a two years cursus, jointly performed by Phelma and Ense3, to prepare a high level engineer degree in both information System, Communication and Signal / Image / Multimedia.
 Students will receive an Engineer Degree from the Grenoble Institute of Technology, and a master degree.

The demand for engineers in this field is increasing due to the fact that signal and image processing, communication and multimedia technologies are heavily involved in many industrial sectors, such as information industries, telecommunications, the biomedical sector and the leisure industry. Our programme prepares the students for a successful future engineer’s career in industrial research and development in various fields involving skills in signal or image processing, communications, computer sciences, electronics and multimedia. 

Teaching staff includes faculty members from Grenoble-INP, full time researchers from CNRS as well as professional engineers from -usually international- companies located in Grenoble and around. Emphasis is put on practical training and most theoretical courses are coupled with labworks and integrated projects. The curriculum includes two internships (10 weeks and 6 months,) during which the students work fulltime, either in industry or in academic research facility.

Objectives


The objective of this Specialization is the training of high level engineers with expertise in signal processing, computers and electronics, capable of developing industrial projects in the relevant sectors. The program is also designed to provide strong fundamental bases for further PhD studies. 

Specificities


Languages
All courses and practicals can be taught in English.

Program

Home institution(s) : -
  • Course duration : 3 years (6 semesters)

Program

The first year


2 tracks are available within the 1st year and lead to a Bachelor of Engineering science.




The second year





The third year



Semester 9 can be completed in one of two cross-disciplinary programs that concern all majors:
> IPEM Industrial Processes & Environmental Management
> MANINTEC Management, Innovation, Technologies


MASTER THESIS

The End of Studies Project (Projet de Fin d'Etudes, PFE) is a very important element in an engineer's training. Students learn how to implement their theoretical and technical knowledge in real world industrial projects. This requires them to understand how an enterprise operates, how to manage a project, deal with theoretical and practical problems, how to work in a team and how to best utilize knowledge and skills.

In general, students work on projects offered by the enterprise in the different domains associated with their training. The duration of the project is generally 6 months. Students are required to document their placement in a report and take a viva. This accounts for 30 ECTS credits.



Board of examiners

Each semester is worth 30 ECTS credits, spread out over the different courses completed. Students must obtain a grade of at least 10/20 in each course to obtain the credits.
