Master Data Science and Engineering (SID)

The SID Master at the Université de Rouen Normandie (UFR des Sciences et Techniques) develops theoretical, computational, programming and analysis skills for mobile and embedded techs, through the general master's core and programming requirements. The Master program leverages the strengths of the LITIS lab (EA 4108), and the research institute Normastic (FR CNRS 3638) in machine learning, data mining, image and signal processing. The program is co-accredited with the INSA Rouen Normandie, a renowned French school of engineering.

Students will learn to integrate skills with the aim of becoming high level executives, able to design, build and implement IT infrastructures and systems, aiming at collecting, storing, analyzing and interpreting data, so as to generate appropriate, real-time feedback, in changing business contexts.

This Master is part of the MINMACS graduate school, a joint graduate school of the mathematics and information sciences departments of the three major universities (Caen, Le Havre and Rouen) and Grande Ecoles (ENSICaen and INSA Rouen) in Normandy.

Master's program:

The SID master's program offers three tracks, listed below, with many courses shared by the three tracks, especially in the first year.

Data Science (SD)

This track trains students in data science with a programming focus, for them to become engineer, consultant or researcher in data science, for different activity sectors: software edition, web services and e-business, public services, automobile, high-tech industry, or biomedical area. All courses are taught in English.


Intelligent, Mobile and Embedded Systems (SIME)

This track trains students for them to become engineer with a specialization in mobile and embedded computer science, able to manage software and hardware projects for different activity sectors: security, communication, automation and control, robotics, home automation, aeronautics industry, transport, etc. All courses are taught in French.



This track, as part of the Graduate School MinMacs, offers a high-level training in mathematics and information science, with a personalised tutoring system, an immersion in research laboratories, and relies on an existing network of local, national and international partners allowing for mobility, internships and projects. The program is suitable for those who wish to pursue research by undertaking a PhD and those wishing to enter industry, with applications in the fields of health, mobility and renewable energy.
