The objective of the M2 “Integration Circuits and Systems” is to train future researchers or engineers with extensive knowledge and skills in advanced domains of electronic design: hyper-frequencies, components and systems for telecommunications, decananometric microelectronics, microsystems (MEMS/NEMS), analogic and digital embedded systems, conversion AN/NA, signal material treatment, etc. This M2 is based on courses given by 3 establishments considered as references in this domain: Supélec, Télécom ParisTech and Paris-Sud University. The courses will be given on the three corresponding campuses.
Principle job opportunities: Research, R&D in electronics.
The common portion of the training focuses on acquiring fundamental knowledge required to perform high-level activities in analogic and mixed signal electronic design (RF, digital), theoretical as well as practical knowledge (analogic simulation tools, digital simulation/synthesis). The courses given within each of the three M2 specialisations are:
• AMS&RF systems and connected objects
• Analogic/digital integrated circuits
• Circuits and heterogeneous systems that enable students to deal with real design problems, especially via project-type courses and to acquire the associated skills.
At this end of this curriculum, students will have expanded their knowledge and acquired practical know-how that includes mastering the IT design tools most widely used in this area.

Career prospects

Following the industry route, this M2 paves the way to a career in research and development; not only in the field of microelectronics, the core of the course, but also more broadly in the design of analogue or digital electronic systems in applications such as embedded systems, sensors, instrumentation or telecommunications.
Following the academic route, this programme leads to thesis preparation not only in microelectronics but also in the various specialisation fields: microsystems, nanoarchitectures, embedded systems, radiofrequency systems, analogue/digital converters, hardware signal processing.
