Master in Smart Electronic Systems - International track

Ville connectée

The international track of the Smart Electronic Systems specialization of ESIEE Paris - Univ Gustave Eiffel (Uni Eiffel) is a two-year programme entirely taught in English. This unique Master degree is part of the Graduate Program CODS from  Univ Eiffel's Graduate School. It is both application-driven and R&D oriented, so that the successful candidates can continue after his or her studies in a company or in a doctoral program.


The objective of this programme is to train engineers with a specialization in electronics, communications and sensor design.


The lectures are given by faculty members and researchers from Univ Eiffel on the Paris-East Marne-la-Vallée campus, which gather a university, several graduate schools of engineering and a research center, as from key industry players.
During the first semester, this program focuses on fundamental courses on electronics, micro/nanotechnologies and wireless communications. Then graduates will broaden their knowledge to advanced techniques for sensor design & fabrication, data transmission and applications.

The program also includes general management and innovation issues, as well as French culture and language.

At the end of each year, students are required to conduct a development or research internship with either a company or a research laboratory. This can be carried out either in France or abroad.

During the two years of the Master, the students would have the possibility to spend one day per week dedicated to a R&D project under the supervision of a professor or a researcher from UGE.

The Graduate Program “Connected Object, Device and Systems”

During the 2nd year of their Master, excellent students from the SEI International track interested in research can apply to the Graduate Program “Connected Object, Device and Systems” (GP CODS).

Supported by the ESYCOM laboratory (UMR CNRS 9007), the GP CODS allows students to benefit from an adjustment of their curriculum in order to follow an individualised research project throughout the year.

For these students, it is a good opportunity:

  • to discover and train in research during the academic period
  • to benefit from a monthly grant of 500€ from September to June
  • to benefit from a Master Thesis internship (6 months, paid in addition to the scholarship) within ESYCOM lab and to receive special support towards a PhD if desired
  • Possibly benefit from a mobility grant for a stay in a partner laboratory abroad during the internship
