Embedded systems are the beating heart of any modern device. Omnipresent, they are revolutionising uses and revisiting the relationship we have with objects.

‘Olivier Chesnais’

‘Head of the Embedded Systems, Aeronautics & Robotics Major.’

Mastering ubiquitous systems

An embedded system is a system combining electronics and computing embedded in an environment with strong constraints (low power consumption, reduced memory capacity, real time, security, robustness). Embedded systems are ubiquitous and play a very important role in our daily lives: smartphone, satellite, bank card, car, TGV, plane, camera, drone, GPS, multimedia console…

In a highly competitive global context, embedded systems represent a major differentiating factor for a very large number of sectors: energy, transport, defense, aeronautics, health, multimedia, telecoms, smart cards, production, logistics and consumer electronics.

The objectives of the training

  • Master the technology of embedded systems in the field of hardware and software.
  • Mastering software engineering and modeling of complex systems.
  • Master the creation of architecture and energy management in a complex system.
  • Identify risks to face cyber threats and master artificial intelligence algorithms applied to robotics and avionics technologies.

This training can also be followed in apprenticeship.

Program of the Major

The skills and expertise required for embedded systems are numerous, varied and not widespread. The assimilation of system security concepts (robustness, integrity, confidentiality) as well as software and hardware virtualization allowing critical and non-critical applications to cohabit on the same chip are real differentiating assets that are highly sought after by companies.

The courses in the Embedded Systems, Aeronautics and Robotics major contribute fully to boosting innovation in the fields of intelligent transportation, personal assistance, sustainable mobility, home hospitalization, and consumption control.

This Major has a common core with the Connected & Autonomous Vehicle Major.

  • Embedded Linux
  • Modeling of real-time systems
  • Development of electronic systems
  • Microcontroller
  • Advanced C programming
  • Industrial local area networks
  • Embedded JAVA
