Smart Electronic Systems engineer training

Formation Systèmes électroniques intelligents

ESIEE Paris offers a specialization in Smart Electronic Systems within its engineering program during the last two years of the course, accredited by the Engineering Titles Commission (CTI).

Why should I become a Smart Electronic Systems Engineer?

Electronic engineers can work in various sectors and always more with the development of the internet of things : computer science, telecommunications, aeronautics, automobile, etc. From the idea to the manufacture, multiple stages are necessary and he can supervise the follow-up.

Present everywhere, electronics have a major role in the French economy. Especially since the digital revolution creates new needs.

What will the training bring me?


  • Become a multi-skilled engineer in electronic
  • Learn how to conceive Smart Electronic Systems from the choice of the components to the conception
  • Follow a training that responds to tomorrow’s challenges : the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Datascience, Cybersecurity…


  • Master the conception of Smart Electronic Systems
  • Master the description languages of materials and programmable circuits such as VHDL, FPGA, Soc Systems on Chip
  • Assimilate the C language, the microcontroller programmation, analogue electronic, RF antenna, telecommunications, MEMS…

How is the training going?

At the end of the first year of the engineering cycle, students choose their field of study. The course of study is spread over two years with compulsory and optional scientific and technical courses, management courses and modern languages.

Program detailed

2nd year of the engineering cycle

The courses are organized in two semesters, each one subdivided into two periods. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. The second semester is made up of one teaching period and an internship period of at least 12 weeks. From January to April, students must work in teams on multidisciplinary projects proposed by industrial partners, laboratories or ESIEE Paris teachers.  All students may take optional modern language 2 courses.

▶ UE - Sciences and techniques in depth (330h - 27 ECTS)
▶ UE - Sciences and techniques opening (90h - 10 ECTS)
▶ UE - Management and human sciences (120h - 7 ECTS)
▶ UE - Modern Languages (76h - 4 ECTS)
▶ Internship (12 ECTS)

3rd year of the engineering cycle

The courses are organized in two semesters. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. In the second semester, the student must complete an end-of-studies internship of at least 24 weeks (6 months) in a company or research laboratory.

▶ UE - Sciences and techniques deepening (180h - 18 ECTS)
▶ UE - Sciences and techniques opening (60h - 5 ECTS)
▶ UE - Management and human sciences (90h - 5 ECTS)
▶ UE - Modern Languages (42h - 4 ECTS)
▶ Internship (30 ECTS)

Examples of applications : autonomous vehicles, intelligent habitat and environment, secure contactless payment, hardware acceleration for financial markets, etc.
