In the last few decades, companies have accumulated overwhelming amounts of data, be it textual (reports, emails, phone call transcripts, etc.), numeric (sales figures, meteorological data, etc.) or binary (images, audio, sensor data, etc.). Using statistical “data mining” methods, one can detect tendencies, hidden patterns and knowledge nuggets, and use them to make strategic decisions. This process is of crucial importance in all sectors of activity, and in particular for business, science, politics, security, healthcare, etc. This Computer Science & Decision Systems programme is offered by TELECOM Bretagne.
Thanks to Telecom Bretagne's expertise in postgraduate education and research, high-level competencies are acquired not only in technical/scientific fields but also in team working, written and oral communication, innovation and project management.
Last but not least, French language is also one of the competencies acquired, beneficial for working in France and other French-speaking countries or for French companies abroad.
This master is accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and fully complies with the EHEA system.

Telecom Bretagne does its utmost to help students get financial support. Only the best student files with exceptional academic records are submitted to the "Fondation Telecom" and to other institutions mainly related to sponsor companies. The number of scholarships is limited and varies each year depending on the sponsors' donations to the foundations.
Applying for a Fondation Telecom scholarship is not a specific application process. Students simply have to mention their request in the funding section of their MSc programme online application. After been admitted and their documents (certified hard copies) have been received at Telecom Bretagne, students are informed about a possible scholarship.
It is important to be aware that Telecom Scholarships for Excellence are aimed at outstanding students graduated from renowned universities only.
Partial fee waivers may be awarded depending on the quality of students' files. Excellent academic records are definitely required for such discounts.
Some costs may be funded by certain French embassies, by our "Fondation Telecom" (up to €14,000) or within the framework of agreements between certain international institutions.
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.
