Full time| Saclay Campus, Palaiseau

Registration closed – Program being redesigned – Reopening in September 2022

Levers for success

A professional training and a Bac+6 diploma.

A curriculum that anticipates future developments: 5G and the Internet of Things.

Train mobile network experts

Pedagogy: A practical application of the most recent technologies. – A professional thesis between teaching and immersion in a company.

Mobile networks have changed the way we communicate in our societies. From the first GSM telephone systems to the fifth generation systems, enormous progress has been made. These systems have become global and are now used by several billion people around the world.

Recent 4G deployments are already the first signs of a major new technological revolution towards fifth generation mobile systems and especially the Internet of Things.

The Post Master’s Degree® Mobile Networks, IoT and 5G is a professional training program that will allow you to demonstrate your expertise in mobile communications and connected objects, and to be at the heart of future developments (5G, IoT, Cloud) of infrastructures concerning billions of users.

The objective of the Post Master’s Degree® in Mobile Networks is to train experts in these different network application areas. Participants acquire expertise in the protocols and architecture of these systems, both on the radio and the fixed part. The most recent systems are presented in detail: LTE, LTE Advanced. Future developments, such as 5G and the Internet of Things, virtualization in mobile networks (NFV/SDN) and the cloud are also developed.

A second part of the training deals with radio engineering. It provides students with a mastery of the processes involved in the planning and dimensioning of these networks.
