MSC Satellite Communications Systems

Détails de la formation

Objectifs : Débute en septembre 2021

The SATCOM systems program aims to train autonomous graduates in the field of satellite telecommunications. The level of expertise acquired in electronics, digital communications, networks and systems allows them to quickly access positions of responsibility in this field and more generally in the field of telecommunications.

The program is built upon on the following foundations:

A global approach of system design and analysis by taking into account the environments, the limitations and constraints, the interfaces and the expected performances,
An expertise in the disciplines contributing to the design of these systems: electronics, digital communications, networking, etc.
Simulation tools and field techniques,
Development of applications for the space and embedded-system domains

Niveau de Diplôme (UE) : (niveau 7) - (Niveau CEC ou équivalent)

Conditions d'admission (diplômes) : BSc/BEng degree in electronics, telecommunications. Candidates with a Bsc/Beng in computer science, electrical engineering or a strong experience in tech companies may also be considered.

Direct enrolment in M2 (year 2) for students with a validated M1 curriculum or for continuing education is possible under certain conditions, please contact

Métiers et activité professionnelle visés : The main sector of activity is satellite telecommunications, but graduates can integrate into the entire field of telecommunications.

Graduates are mainly hired by the major European players in the field of satellite telecommunications (system and service providers): industrials (Thales Alenia Space, Airbus Defense and Space, etc.), agencies (CNES, DLR, ESA, etc.), operators (EUTELSAT, SES, INMARSAT). Large companies in the field of telecommunications in general such as Thales and Orange for example are also employers. Graduates are also recruited by SMEs such as: CLS, Silicom, Sigfox, etc.

Durée et modalités : 2 years, 120 ECTS

Commentaires : Toulouse being the French capital of Space, the Master program benefits of a unique research and professional environment. It also profits from the strong connections with the aerospace and defence industries developed by faculty members of ENSEEIHT.

The Master program is supported by major actors in the field of satellite communications (Airbus Defense and Space, Thales Alenia Space, CNES, SES, EUTELSAT, INMARSAT…). The teaching staff is composed of faculty members who are part of major French research laboratories and experts of satellite industry.
