The EEA Department occupies a position at the interface between the fundamental sciences (physics and mathematics) and applied sciences, in relation with electrical and information engineering. The instruction offered covers both theoretical and fundamental aspects, as well as applied and experimental facets in academic sectors that are currently at the forefront of major scientific, technological and economic breakthroughs, i.e. electronics and microelectronics, microsystems, nanotechnologies, nanosciences, materials for energy and information, electrotechnical systems, energy conversion, automatic control, signal and image processing, communication systems, telecommunications, computer engineering, to name just the most pertinent. The coursework proposed leads to applications in a broad array of fields: transportation, renewable energies, biomedical engineering, astrophysics, musical acoustics, etc.
The academic curriculum is based on a Master's degree programme in Electrical and information engineering (IST), along with a large number of specialisations available; this offering generates a wide variety of individual academic profiles. A portion of the curriculum may be undertaken at a foreign university.
The curriculum includes an internship component that takes the form of in-classroom training, a corporate internship and research laboratory experiences.
