Mastering Information Technology

The "Grandes Écoles" Quality Engineering Education

> Research

Grenoble is a major high tech city in France, sometimes referred to as the French Silicon Valley and home to 18,000 jobs in Information Technology. Moreover, it has recently been hailed as the world wide innovative center in micro and nanotechnology and embedded systems.

Ensimag teacher-researchers are active in

  • The Minalogic global competitiveness cluster (MIcro NAnotechnologies and the Grenoble-Isère Compétitivité software), which aims to give the French sector of micro and nanotechnologies and embedded software a sustainable competitive advantage in the field of electronics and embedded software On-chip .
  • The Carnot Institute "Software and Intelligent Systems", which develops new solutions in intelligent software and systems, in all the fields where these technologies are involved: transport, telecommunications, consumer electronics, energy distribution, medical assistance...

IRL: Introduction to Laboratory Research

The objective of this module is to enable motivated students to participate in a research activity in a laboratory during the second semester. Each student is supervised by a researcher in the laboratory and works half a day a week on a specific subject and presents the results in an oral defense and a written report.


Ensimag students can carry out innovative projects. The objective of these projects is to create "objects" (embedding computers) meeting specific needs. There is no imposed scope for these objects: they can range from equipment for doctors working in the field (eg "doctors without borders"), to "intelligent" equipment for cyclists, Objects for home automation (eg objects making a building "intelligent"). These projects combine computer and "hardware" development.

Valentin, followed the IRL module

For my IRL subject I was offered to participate in a researcher's work by adapting existing techniques that the lab had developed on a somewhat complex program example. I am passionate about research, and I intend to continue in this direction.
