The physical layer of digital radio encompasses all the electronic circuits, the emitting and receiving antennae as well as the study of the propagation environment enabling wireless digital communication among several users. Applications are increasingly resource-hungry in integrated electronics.
Above all in an effort to reduce costs, industry is implementing multiple standard wireless emitting/receiving devices. Proposing concrete solutions for the design of the physical layers of these communication systems are crucial skills where a strong ability to innovate is currently required. This Masters degree, dedicated to Digital Radio enables a high degree of skill to be gained and a very soughtafter specialisation profile, by emphasising in particular the current and future challenges in academic and industrial research and development.
The Digital Radio Masters degree programme aims to give students advanced methodological, technical and scientific knowledge in radio communications and practical experience of this knowledge through the analysis, design and implementation of radio communication front ends. Many factors must be taken into account together to find innovative and effective solutions. Thus, the design of a RF communication system requires skills in the physics of semi-conductors, propagation, antennae, micro and nano-electronics and also in signal processing, digital communications and a more global vision in terms of the system and functionality.
Practical information : The MSc DR programme includes courses over 2 semesters (composed of 4 quarters so-called "Périodes") and a one semester internship with industry or in a research laboratory.
Comments : The MSc DR programme includes courses over 2 semesters and a one semester paid internship with industry or in a research laboratory.
The first period of the first semester provides harmonisation classes: digital communications: 30hrs, communication systems: 30h, electronics of acquisition systems: 30 hrs, architectures for digital processing of signals: 30 hrs.
The second period of the first semester and second semester provide specialisation classes: basics of radio frequency electronics: 30 hrs, radio frequency communications: 30 hrs, project: 60 hrs, microelectronics: 60 hrs, radio systems: 60 hrs, integration of electronic systems for radio communications: 60 hrs, RF systems and dedicated RF circuits: 60 hrs. To these classes in science and techniques for engineers are added courses in economics and international management, work experience and French as a foreign language.
The third semester is reserved for an internship in a company or a research laboratory.
Examples: global optimisation of filtering, digital decimation and calibration of a parallel sigma delta modulator for multiple standard reception GSM, UMTS, WiFi and WiMax design and production of an active integrated monolithic antenna with an amplifier integration and evaluation of a wireless sensor architecture development of a mixed analogical digital front-end.
Class examples :
* Architectures for Digital Signal Processing
* Communications Systems
Skills acquired :
The student gains technical knowledge covering a large spectrum: a study of the propagation environment and its modelling, integration techniques in hyper-frequency electronics, analogical and digital, antennae, radio emitting-receiving front ends: overview, algorithms and architectures, components, partitioning, impact of the technology.
Given a good overall vision of how the systems function, the student will be able to work in professions requiring both wide knowledge of front-end emitting and receiving systems as well as specific detailed knowledge of the components and integration techniques.
Supported by the research carried out at Telecom ParisTech, the students systematically acquire state of the art knowledge and are also aware of and faced with the importance and challenges in terms of innovation and possible innovative pathways.
Professional openings :
* Any company manufacturing electronic chips containing radio interfaces.
* Any company which integrates electronic systems.
* Telecommunication operators.
* Design offices or consultancies.
* Academic or industrial research laboratories.
