Computer Science for Networks at Institut Polytechnique de Paris Master’s program enables students to understand, analyze and improve communication networks, as well as develop and define software for next-generation networks. The broad range of courses gives students the opportunity to develop excellent technical and scientific skills. 


Computer Science for Networks at Institut Polytechnique de Paris enables first year students to acquire the necessary background in computer science. Laboratory time and projects offer students the opportunity to practice and understand concepts more easily. 

The second-year provides techniques and tools to tackle current questions through the in-depth study of computer science and complex networks. Students will also learn to master recent approaches based on advanced software engineering. The program comprises core courses in computer science and networks, as well as optional modules in specific domains.

High-quality lectures and project supervision are provided by renowned professors and industry experts. The program has strong ties with industry, and many courses and lab sessions are run by our industry partners. The program also provides a first research experience to prepare students for a PhD or career as a research engineer in academic or industrial organizations.
