Master in Electronics, electrical energy, automation

Electrical Engineering and Control Systems / CompSEE 2nd year

Presentation and goals

The R&D sector into electrical energy is booming worldwide, both because sustained energy requirements and environmental constraints increasingly strong. Technological developments are many and generate an important call for engineers and researchers high-level able to support their development. To meet these needs, the EECS/CompSEE Master program will give you the opportunity to learn advanced skill sets with projects led by high-level research units.

The EECS/CompSEE courses is designed as the convergence of three training areas: Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and emphasize the use of multiscale and multiphysics techniques to aid in the understanding and development of complex physical behaviors and electrical systems. With advanced theoretical knowledge and challenging practical applications, it will teach you the techniques and methodologies you will need to enhance your research and innovation capabilities at the international level.

The EECS/CompSEE program is supported by leading laboratories and companies in electrical engineering. Whether you look for a career in the international research community or high-level research and development industrial departments, when you graduate you are competent to work in many engineering and industrial fields: distribution networks, electric power systems, electromagnetic modeling and computation, etc. You can also choose to pursue a career in research field with a Ph.D thesis in the exceptional scientific environment that is Grenoble and the French Alps, in one of our partner laboratories (G2Elab, GIPSA-Lab, G-Scop, CEA), which hire a large number of doctoral students every year.


The classes are given in English and organized in two semesters:

  • September to January: theoretical classes and project;
  • February to July: 5-6 months of industrial or research internship.

Access condition

This two-semester program is a specialty (second and last year, master 2nd year in the French system) of the master Electrical Engineering and Control Systems (EECS). The French master is 2 year, but if you have the appropriate background, the first year may be validated as equivalent and at the end of the one-year CompSEE program you obtain a diploma corresponding to 2 years of studies (master EECS, CompSEE specialty diploma). We welcome students who obtained (by the end of spring at the latest) :

  • at least 180 ECTS for the students in an exchange program who wish to join CompSEE for one semester in order to validate specific classes in their home institution
  • at least 240 ECTS (typically 4 years of University studies) for students wishing to validate the master 2nd level

For students from foreign countries who completed a full Bachelor program of 4 years or more, your application will be evaluated by a specific jury (called the Commission de Validation des Acquis).

Requirements. In order to apply to this master program, the prospective student should:

  • hold a master 1, bachelor or equivalent degree completed after four full years of University studies
  • have followed basic classes and obtained top grades in classical electromagnetism, electrical engineering (power grids, operating modes and control of power electronic converters,...), numerical methods (numerical derivation and integration, interpolation, linear and non-linear solver, matrix algebra,...), scientific programming (python, java, C++, ...).
  • 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.

Public continuing education. Your application is handled by the "continuing education" office:

  • 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
