Objectives

The mission of the Computer & Network Systems program is to provide students with the fundamental principles and techniques to become a system architect in the broad sense.

Two different, complementary, areas are proposed in the current curriculum:
- a Networked Systems track, and
- an Autonomous Systems track.
The aim of the program is to give students all the necessary scientific bases for the design of these systems.

The emphasis of the Networked Systems track is on deploying, managing, controlling and optimizing large-scale and high-performance IT infrastructures.

The emphasis of the Autonomous Systems track is on the design of systems with an intrinsic capacity to adapt to changes, that is systems capable of self-configuration, self-organization, self-healing, self-learning, self-regulation, self-optimization and self-protection.

On a scientific level, the objective is to present the necessary knowledge on formal methods for the design, verification and test of complex systems; artificial intelligence (machine learning, reinforcement learning, multi-agent systems, ...); models of performance (automata, Petri nets, queues, ...) and optimization methods (game theory, multi-criteria (including energy) optimization, ...).

Course Prerequisites

The Master 2 is accessible to students holding the Computer & Network Systems M1 and, upon consideration of their file, to students holding an M1 in Informatics, an undergraduate degree (over 4 years) or Master's degree in Computer Science, an M2 in foreign Computer Science, or an engineering degree with a substantial informatics component. All applications are reviewed by the admissions panel.
