The Computer & Mobile Systems Engineering Track of the SID Master aims at training future engineers able to manage software and hardware projects for real time systems. With today's smartphones, connected devices and Internet Of Things, activity sectors are numerous: security, communication, automation and control, robotics, home automation, aeronautics industry, transport, mobile health, education, silver economy, energy, cloud, military, etc.
Computer systems are now more and more mobile and integrate more complex features. They are now a fundamental component of smart device technology and are full part of our daily life and professional environment. The construction of such systems is an important, fast-growing field related to, among others, the design of pocket-sized artificial intelligence devices. With the Master 2 GIME, graduates are expected to enter the workplace with the computing, programing and designing skills needed to be part of this digital revolution.
The M2 GIME courses are taught in French.
Job prospects after the Master 2 include real time embedded system engineer or designer, digital system engineer, mobile and network sensors engineer, embedded platforms engineer, multi-sensor fusion engineer, human machine interface engineer, mobile application engineer, system project manager, embedded systems security engineer, software developer.
Student who wish to prepare for research careers in data science are encouraged to apply for a PhD position (be it in an academic lab or in a company), as the Master SID provides a good background for a doctoral program.
The goal of course projects is to provide depth in a particular area as seen in class in a hands-on fashion. Projet assignments are due at each semester of the 2-year Master. Students can choose to work alone or as a teamn and are supervised by faculty. During the M2, the capstone project consists of a semester-long work sponsored by a faculty member or local organization, either as industry-supplied or part of existing research projects.
The 2nd year of the Master is supplemented by a semester-long internship (4 to 6 months). Internship is a hands-on experience one of the most important investment in the student career. This real-world practicum can take place in a company, or in a lab, for students interested by academic research. Intership can be in France or abroad.
