Wireless Integrated Circuits and Systems (WICS)

Presentation and goals

The WICS (Wireless Integrated Circuits and Systems) Master is a Master degree focusing in integrated circuit and system design for Analog/Mixed/RF & millimeterwave applications. It gives students the opportunity to learn advanced skill sets with projects led by high-level research units; the techniques and methodologies they will need to promote their research on an international level will be studied.

With a curriculum focusing on theoretical knowledge supported by practical applications, the WICS Master prepares students for a career in both the international research community and the professional applications. As they finish their training, graduate students are fully ready to pursue a career in thriving fields such as the Internet of Things, future wireless communication systems, sensor networks, or medical applications.

Grenoble (and more generally the French Alps area) is an exceptional research environment for nano & microelectronics (with the Minatec innovation campus). Thus the WICS master is supported by leading research laboratories and companies specialized in radiofrequency and microelectronics. Most students consequently choose to stay in the research field with a thesis, and our partners laboratories (TIMA, RFIC-Lab, CEA-Leti, LCIS, IMEP-LAHC) hire about 10 doctoral students each year in the field of radiofrequencies.

A double degree with Politecnico di Torino has been created. It concerns the WICS Master in France (at the UGA and Grenoble INP) and the Laurea magistrale in Ingegneria elettronica in Italy (at Politecnico di Torino). Courses are taught in English. The first year of this program is taught at PoliTo, the second year at UGA/Grenoble INP.

Internationally-oriented programmes

The WICS Master is taught in English by French and foreign teachers and/or researchers from universities and companies. It will allow preparing students for a career in both the international research community and the professional applications.

 

A double degree with Politecnico di Torino has been created. It concerns: 

- Master WICS in France (at the UGA and Grenoble INP);

- Laurea magistrale in Ingegneria elettronica in Italy (at Politecnico di Torino).

The first year of this program is taught at PoliTo, the second year at UGA/Grenoble INP.

Entrance requirements

- 1st year of Master WICS degree:

The prospective student should:

  • have completed at least three full years of University studies (180 ECTS)

- 2nd year of Master WICS degree:

The prospective student should:

  • have completed at least four full years of University studies (a first year of Master's degree, bachelor or equivalent degree with 240 ECTS)
  • have followed basic classes in Electronics and Radio Frequency
  • prove an English proficiency with CEFR (B2), TOEFL (IBT 87-109), IELTS (5.5-6.5), TOEIC (785-945) or equivalent. Students coming from English-speaking countries or/and who had a University curriculum in English are considered proficient enough. If you don't have the opportunity to take the test in your home University, an English test is organized during the first week of the classes, to check the level of everyone.

- Double degree program:

The prospective student should:

  • have completed at least three full years of University studies (180 ECTS) in the fields of Electronics or Applied physics.
  • prove an English proficiency with CEFR (B1), IELTS (5.0), or equivalent as a minimum. Both certificates from an accredited institution and/or statements from the home institution are accepted.

For candidates whose country of residence is not included in the "Studies in France" portal (PEF) scheme, the calendar for the eCandidat application campaigns is available here.

Public continuing education:

You are in charge of continuing education:
• if you resume your studies after 2 years of interruption of studies,
• or if you followed training under the continuous training regime one of the previous 2 years
• or if you are an employee, job seeker, self-employed.

If you do not have the diploma required to integrate the training, you can undertake a validation of personal and professional achievements (VAPP).
