Systems, Control and IT (MiSCIT), M.Sc.

  • English (book IELTS)


Control and information technology components are increasingly used in complex engineering systems. The pervasive infiltration of computer systems (embedded systems and networks) in engineered products and in society requires new insights and ideas in engineering research, education and entrepreneurship.

Model-based system integration methodology combined with an overall emphasis on compositional design methodology then appears as a crucial issue in modern process automation and research in automatic control.

This Systems, Control and IT (MiSCIT) two-semester program from Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) is a specialty (second and last year, Master 2 in the French system) of the Master "Electronique, Electrotechnique, Automatique et Traitement du Signal (EEATS)". The French master is 2 year, but when you apply a centralized University board examines your application to grant you, if suitable, the first year as equivalent and at the end of the one-year MiSCIT program you obtain a diploma corresponding to 2 years of studies (Master EEATS, MiSCIT specialty diploma).

The proposed curriculum consequently includes advanced topics in control-oriented modeling, systems theory, supervision, communication networks and real-time operation, along with the more classical multi-objective and discrete events control issues. Our aim is to provide high-level knowledge and skills for research and developments (R & D) in process automation, from the latest theories to their applications.

Programme Structure


Two specialties, with different pedagogical goals, are offered:

  • Industrial Processes Automation (IPA, former PSPI) aims at the industrial world, with a focus on team working and communication, technological innovation and the adaptability to new environments.
  • Control and Systems Theories (CST, former Auto), oriented towards research with the development of analytical skills and independent working capabilities.

The distinction between these two specialties is expressed by automation-oriented classes (networks, real-time implementation...), a higher proportion of labs and team projects in IPA, while more advanced courses in system theory and personal projects are proposed in CST.

The classes are given in English and organized in two semesters:

  • September to December: theoretical classes;
  • January to June: project and 5 months of industrial or research internship

Academic Requirements

In order to apply to this master program, the prospective student should:
  • hold a M1, bachelor or equivalent degree completed after four full years of University studies;
  • have followed basic classes in Automatic Control;
  • prove an English proficiency with CEFR (B2), TOEFL (IBT 87-109), IELTS (5.5-6.5), TOEIC (785-945) or equivalent. Students coming from English-speaking countries or/and who had a University curriculum in English are considered proficient enough. If you don't have the opportunity to take the test in your home University, an English test is organized during the first week of the classes, to check the level of everyone.

Several financial ressources are available for foreign students with excellent accademic background:

  • Students with excellent accademic records and highly interested in pursuing a Ph.D. thesis with a lab in Grenoble can apply to the UJF predoc or to the Persyval-lab predoc scholarships!
  • Eiffel scholarships for foreign students. A special procedure at UJF allows us to evaluate the Eiffel applications before the Eiffel deadline. Please be aware that there are very few scholarships available (1 or 2 per year for the whole UJF). Please complete your Eiffel application as soon as possible and send it to the head of the Master program (including transcripts, motivation letter and recommandation letters).
  • Scholarships "Accueil sup" offered by Region Rhone-Alpes

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
