This international Master's Degree is aimed at future experts for the design, control and deployment of high-performance communicating embedded systems as a basis of the IoT paradigm. This requires a wide knowledge including wireless, transmissions systems, antennas design, as well as some aspects of computer science.


The Wireless Embedded Technologies Master’s Degree proposes a new crossdisciplinary education paradigm, designed to provide high-level training for professional engineers who plan to become technical leaders in this burgeoning field. The purpose of this Master’s program is to provide a broad education in communicating embedded systems with the opportunity to specialize in areas that cover theoretical as well as practical aspects of embedded systems development.

  • to integrate knowledge, in an independent way and with a critical eye
  • to identify, formulate and handle complex problems within the area
  • to create technical solutions that fulfill human and societal needs
  • to show an ability independently or within a group, to create relevant connected objects.


The program mainly aims at international students and is taught in English. A good command of the English language is required (B2 score as defined by the Council of Europe). Introductions to French language and European culture are provided locally at Polytech Nantes.

All courses are taught in English, except the module for innovation and entrepreneurship.
