Ecole Polytechnique is, with our colleagues from Telecom-ParisTech, offering the international, English-language, Research-Masters program in “Advanced Communication Networks” – among friends, simply called “ACN”.
An ACN graduate is ready and capable – is the best prepared professional for, through acquired high-level scientific skills and sustained research, pushing the boundaries of communications technology, of computer networking, and of the digitized society.
The ACN program is, by design, both selective and boutique:
- Selective, because we admit only the most promising candidates, allowing us an attractive faculty-to-student ratio. This allows us to also be…
- Boutique, catering to each students’ profile, constructing an individual program, and accompanying her/him from admission and until a Masters degree has been obtained, and the student is ready to commence a PhD.
Why yes – many of our graduates continue onwards to do a PhD, and many do so in collaboration with the research laboratories of our industrial partners, including Cisco Paris Innovation and Research Laboratory (Cisco PIRL), Nokia Bell-Labs, Thales, etc.
This, too, is by design: we believe that innovation is founded in high-level research, and research is an integral part through the ACN program: through a 5 month full-time research project in the first year of the program, and through a continuous scientific project during the second year, ACN students build a solid scientific culture, and publication track record.
Want to be part of pushing the boundaries, and of inventing the future? Sign up for the ACN Masters Program now!
