This two-semester program is a specialty (second and last year, Master 2 in the French system) of the Master "Electronique, Electrotechnique and Automatique (EEA)". The French master is 2 years, but when you apply a 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). We welcome students who obtained (by the end of Spring at the latest):

  • at least 180 ECTS for the students in an exchange programme who wish to join MiSCIT for one semester in order to validate specific classes in their home institution;
  • at least 240 ECTS (typically 4 years of University studies) for students wishing to validate the Master 2 level.
For students from foreign countries who completed a full Bachelor program of 4 years or more, your application will be evaluated by a specific jury (called the Commission de Validation des Acquis).


In order to apply to this master program, the prospective student should:

  • hold an M1, bachelor or equivalent degree completed after four full years of University studies;
  • have followed basic classes in Automatic Control and succeeded with top grades;
  • 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.
