The objective of the training program is to acquire a strongly specialized expertise in the design and experimentation of last generation micro and nanoelectronics, the most up-to-date embedded chips or optoelectronic circuits and systems. A complementary objective is to address specification, design and validation of complex system-on-chip architecture solutions for a wide range of applications. Students are trained in applied research and development of integrated circuits in analog, digital design, system-on-chip, optoelectronics, microwaves, RF.
The engineering degree, obtained at the end of the full teaching program, creates multiple career opportunities within the following fields of modern electronic engineering:
Design of digital, analog and heterogeneous microelectronic circuits and systems
Hardware and Software Architectures of Systems on Chip
Specification and simulation of electronics systems
Optoelectronic systems design and Optronics
Microelectronic and nanotechnology fabrication
Engineers can also develop careers in the fabrication, research and development engineering of systems and products, as well as IT project and business management.
These technical fields are currently of great importance in the following application domains :
Computers (microprocessors and multiprocessors, hard disk drives, etc.)
Wide range mobile applications (PDA, laptops, GSM, 3G-4G, MP3, GPS, cameras, etc)
Home entertainment applications ( HDTV, Set topbox, video gaming, etc)
Security applications (banking and transactional solutions)
Networking Applications (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, WLAN, Ethernet, optical high band backbone and urban solutions...)
Automotive and high end applications (cars, trains, airplanes, etc.)
