Master's Degree in Waves and Devices for Advanced Wireless Communication Systems (WaveWiCom)
- Course duration : one year
- Course location: Paris, France
- Language of instruction: English
- Diplomas delivered: one postgraduate degree
The next decade is going to witness a profound transformation in the mobile communication infrastructure. The aim of interconnecting everything everywhere has unleashed new visions such as autonomous vehicles, factory of the future, and augmented reality. Advanced concepts in electromagnetic wave propagation are the key to design new radio access networks making ubiquitous connectivity a reality.
WaveWiCom is a one-year master's programme (M2) taught in English to train high-skilled electrical engineers ready to work in research and innovation for wireless communication systems. It covers advanced topics in computational electromagnetics, antennas and radiofrequency devices, wireless communication technologies, propagation channel, and electromagnetic compatibility. Regular contacts with researchers through personally tailored projects as part of the curriculum will help interesting students in pursuing a PhD.
Mandatory courses (27 ECTS)
Elective courses (3ECTS)
Entry Requirements & Admissions
Students having successfully passed a first-year master's (M1) in the field of Electrical Engineering.
Prerequisites include antenna and waveguide theory, microwave theory, signal modulation, and a strong mathematical background.
Tuition fees for the academic year 2022/23 (should be similar in 2023/2024):
- For French and European students (nationals of a member country of the European Union, the European Economic Area, Andorra or Switzerland), students who are residents of Quebec or international students who hold a long-term residence card: Tuition charges will be €245 (+100€ for campus life contribution), which cover social security cost
- For non EU-students, the total registration fee is €3,770 per year. However so far, Sorbonne Université has always compensated for the differentiated cost so that non-EU-students fees were €245 (+100€ for campus life contribution). This has not yet been decided for the 2023/24 academic year and will be known probably soon.
- No tuition fees for:
- Students who come to study in France as part of a partnership agreement between universities that provides for total exemption from enrolment fees (like the Erasmus+ exchange program in particular)
- Students who have been awarded a French government grant (BGF)
- Students who have been awarded a grant from their host institution, providing for total exemption from enrolment fees.
- Partial or total exemption for non-EU students who have been granted full or partial exemption from tuition fees by their host institution in France or by the French embassy in their home country.
- French and European students (nationals of a member country of the European Union, the European Economic Area, Andorra or Switzerland), students who are residents of Quebec or international students who hold a long-term residence card have to apply from mid-April to end of June on the Sorbonne Université website: You must go through the eCandidat procedure and apply to the "Systèmes Commmunicants" programme. When filling the Lime survey you will select the WaveWiCom international programme.
- Foreign students residing in one of the countries affected by the "Etudes en France" procedure (check the list here) have to apply on this web site from November to March (check on your local delegation). Please select “Sorbonne Université” > “Sciences et Ingénierie” > “Taught in English” > “Master indifférencié” > “EEA - Waves and Devices for Advanced Wireless Communication Systems année 2”.
