This graduate specialization is offered to Grenoble INP-Ensimag and Grenoble INP-Phelma students after their last year of bachelor studies.
It is also open to foreign candidates holding a bachelor's degree, as regular students for the two-year curriculum. It leads to the French degree diplôme d'ingénieur Grenoble INP-Ensimag (Master of Science and Engineering).
It is also open to exchange and double-degree students coming from Ensimag's partner universities.
Overview and career opportunities
This master programme targets the professions of software and hardware systems architect, embedded system or real-time system project manager, engineering specialist in design, modeling, integration and validation of embedded systems.
The programme is devoted to the study of the computer systems that have become ubiquitous, from avionics to the objects of everyday life (mobile phones, smart cards, smart buildings, etc.).
The constraints that have to be taken into account for the construction of such systems require that we be able to model and understand the software and the hardware parts together. This is compulsory to be able to master the system-level complexity.
The master program offers advanced courses on the design flow of hardware and software systems; it includes modeling and implementation languages, development methods, usual solutions, and validation methods for embedded systems. It also includes an introduction to control theory and control engineering, needed for the understanding of the interactions between an embedded system and its environment.
Courses taught in English
Each year some courses will be offered in English, the updated information on that offer will be posted on our website.
The End of Studies project
The second semester of the final year of studies is dedicated to this project (30 ECTS credits), which can be performed either in a research laboratory or in companies.
Through this final project, the student, as a full-time member of a working team, is given the opportunity of making the synthesis of the knowledge he acquired, and of showing his ability to put it into practice in a professional context. The student carries out a full-scale project. The results are described in a project report that is defended in front of a committee made up of professionals and Ensimag Faculty.
