A two-year course taught entirely in English, the Internet of Things: Innovation and Management Master’s Program is geared towards training future experts in digital transformation.
New technologies are developing at a very fast pace, with an increasingly strong impact on society. It is now imperative that key players in industry adapt and innovate in order to stay competitive. Faced with this rapid digitalization, the MScT IoT Program meets the needs of both large- and small-scale businesses, by molding students into leaders of the new technological revolution.
École Polytechnique’s renowned multidisciplinary education equips students with the skills to meet the technological, economic, legal and societal challenges of the ever-expanding world of the IoT.
The MScT IoT Program is based on six thematic areas that allow students to develop their expertise in the field of connected objects:
THE GRADUATE PROJECT
During their two years in the Program, students spend several hours a week on their Graduate Project. Individually or in small groups, they manage each step of the development of a connected object, from initial conception right through to design, prototyping and pitching. This development project aims to put into practice the knowledge and methods that students gain over the course of the degree. A dedicated supervisor supports, guides and advises students all throughout the project, while giving them access to their professional and academic network.
The project may be inspired by a student’s original, creative idea, or based on an issue raised by an industrial or academic partner. Some students choose to create a new product or help pre-accelerate a new start-up, with the aid of their professors and start-up creation experts from the Drahi-X Novation Center.
Students can also work on a case proposed by a company partnered with École Polytechnique. In doing so, they get the chance to develop solutions for a real-world client, helping them solve complex challenges and offering strategic recommendations.
The last four-month semester of each year of the Program is devoted entirely to completion of students’ individually chosen or business-oriented Graduate Projects.
