Integration, Circuits and Systems at Institut Polytechnique de Paris  aims to train future researchers and engineers with advanced knowledge in electronics design across cutting-edge domains like ultra-high frequencies, devices and systems for telecommunications, microelectronics, microsystems (MEMS/NEMS), embedded analog and digital systems, high-performance data converters (ADCs, DACs) and hardware-based signal processing.

During the first year dedicated to Electrical engineering for Communications, the student will choose a major in Microelectronics that addresses CMOS integrated technologies and the emergence of the micro/nano technologies, as well as the complexity of today’s integrated systems.

The program covers new technological possibilities including the implementation of high-performance, high-value, multi-domain integrated systems. It provides students with training to address system performance optimization based on specifications obtained by co-designing the different parts. This requires a good knowledge of all the devices used in the system.

The second year program encompasses diverse courses, a project and an internship of 4 to 6 months in industry. During this lab experience, students will be immersed in their field of choice and interact with top-level researchers from one of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris laboratories.

Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies.


After graduation, students could pursue an industrial or academic career:

  • Position in an industry research and development department in microelectronics or broader fields of analog or digital electronic systems design for applications like embedded systems, smart sensors, instrumentation and telecommunications
  • PhD studies in microelectronics or other fields studied in the chosen major: microsystems, nano-architectures, embedded systems, RF systems, high-performance Data Converters or hardware-based signal processing
