Communication Devices and Systems

Due to the concept of “anytime, anywhere, anydevice” common to the new usages of telecommunications, communication systems and particularly the related technologies will have to rise to numerous challenges. These challenges will includevery high data rates for wireless communications, ultra-high data rates for optical communications, enhanced mobility and nomadism, diversity of applications and their inherent constraints. Meeting the abovechallenges will require understanding and mastering a very wide range of technologies and tools in Engineering, Physics and Mathematics.

In this context, the Communication Devices and Systems track brings a global and exhaustive understanding of the physical layer of communication networks both from a theoretical and experimental point of view. After having completed this track, the student will be able:

• to identify the specificities of a communication system

• to analyze the technical and theoretical limits of such a system

• to design a communication system in accordance with specifications

• to understand the impacts of the physical layer on the upper layers of a communication network

More precisely, during the second year, information theory, digital communications, optical communications, antennas and wireless communication electronics systems will be studied. In addition, the interrelation between these domains will be covered in order to provide an end-to-end view of a communication network.

During the third year, students will have the opportunity to specialize in one of the fields listed above.
