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 the field of Signal and Image Processing and Data Science, from sensor to decision. 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 digital revolution and the fact that signal and image processing, communication and multimedia technologies are heavily involved in many industrial sectors such as information industries, telecommunications, biomedical sector, energy and environment 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 data science and artificial intelligence, 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.
The objective of this Specialization is the training of high level engineers with expertise in signal processing, data science, artificial intelligence, 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.
All courses and practicals can be taught in English.

2 tracks are available within the 1st year and lead to a Bachelor of Engineering science.
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.
Students in this major benefit from many agreements between Grenoble Institute of Technology and partners around the globe in the form of exchange programs, dual-degree programs, internships, and more.
