Complex system engineering (ISC)

The objec­tives assi­gned to the UTC-ISC Master’s degree are to pro­vide future engi­nee­ring mana­gers with a solid scien­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal know­ledge base to be able to stu­dy (viz., to cha­rac­te­rize and unders­tand), model and desi­gn com­plex and inno­va­tive sys­tems using a sys­te­mic mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­na­ry approach.


At the core of the ISC Master's degree we find 'sys­tems-of-sys­tems (SoS) that consti­tute the key research theme at the Labex MS2T a French Govern­ment cer­ti­fied "excel­lence" lab in SoS research, in which 3 com­bi­ned UTC-CNRS research units are asso­cia­ted (UTC-BMBI, UTC-Heu­dia­syc and UTC-Rober­val).

The UTC-ISC Master's degree focuses on tech­no­lo­gi­cal sys­tems that imple­ment various tech­ni­cal tools and devices in areas such as bio-engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ta­tio­nal mecha­nics, mecha­tro­nics, com­pu­ter sciences and their appli­ca­tions, EDP and auto­no­mous robo­tic sys­tems. The peda­go­gi­cal paths are construc­ted in per­fect sym­bio­sis with the Labex MS2T research prio­ri­ties, focu­sing on mana­ge­ment of uncer­tain­ty and opti­mi­zed sys­tem desi­gn in a high­ly inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry context.

This UTC Master's degree major ISC, trains stu­dents with a strong scien­ti­fic know­ledge base and a sys­te­mic vision of various tech­no­lo­gi­cal pro­blems that they will meet pro­fes­sio­nal­ly. The aim of the course is to train experts with a solid theo­re­ti­cal base, and a strong tech­ni­cal and metho­do­lo­gi­cal know-how, to car­ry out research acti­vi­ties in SMEs, at major com­pa­nies and groups, in public enter­prises and research esta­blish­ments, or enter­tain the pros­pect of pur­suing to gain a PhD.

Depen­ding on the nature of their pre­vious trai­ning courses, the new UTC-ISC Master's degree gra­duates will be able to apply for pro­fes­sio­nal posi­tions as gene­ral engi­nee­ring posts, advan­ced data ana­ly­sis, engi­nee­ring of smart, auto­ma­ted sys­tems, of mecha­tro­nic sys­tems and other rela­ted to health-care fields and life sciences. Trai­ning recei­ved during ISC stu­dies pro­vides an excellent pre­pa­ra­tion should the gra­duates wish to pur­sue towards a PhD.

The ISC specialties and organization

ISC offers 5 specialties:

All five spe­cial­ties are orga­ni­zed on the basis of 4 semes­ters, 3 of which are class-based, theo­ry and prac­tice (M1S1, M1S2 and M2S3) and one (M2S4) exclu­si­ve­ly devo­ted to a long inter­n­ship (22 to 24 weeks).

Semesters 1 and 2, M1

Trai­ning contents comprise:

  • spe­ci­fic scien­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gy-inten­sive courses (cal­led the Core pro­gramme of the spe­cial­ty), cove­ring sys­tems engi­nee­ring, auto­ma­tion and control, sto­chas­tic model­ling, ope­ra­tio­nal safe­ty and secu­ri­ty, plus expe­ri­men­tal data ana­ly­sis with its asso­ciate protocols;
  • spe­cial advan­ced field courses as com­mon to other UTC engi­nee­ring majors;
  • spe­ci­fic trai­ning modules cho­sen in such a way as to com­plete the pre­vious­ly acqui­red pro­file of the stu­dents, lea­ding to a bet­ter homo­ge­ni­za­tion of the class in terms of know­ledge bases in cer­tain areas as a func­tion of each student's track record and the spe­cial­ty chosen;
  • tea­ching in com­mu­ni­ca­tion (acqui­ring, nota­bly, neces­sa­ry forei­gn lan­guage skills), entre­pre­neu­rial acu­men (HR mana­ge­ment, pro­ject mana­ge­ment, …), research metho­do­lo­gy and biblio­gra­phi­cal synthesis;
  • last­ly, all M1 stu­dents are requi­red to car­ry out a short 1 month inter­n­ship that pro­vides an ini­tial immer­sion in one of the labs asso­cia­ted with the Master's degree programme.

Semester 1, M2

The first semes­ter of M2 includes: 

  • a first quar­ter with core courses (cor­res­pon­ding to a half-semes­ter) on fun­da­men­tal themes com­mon to the Labex in advan­ced data ana­ly­sis and sys­tems engi­nee­ring, opti­mi­za­tion, and bio­mi­me­tic sys­tems. On top of the core courses, there are addi­tio­nal "pre-spe­cia­li­za­tion courses" that can be com­mon to two or three Mas­ter specialties;
  • a second quar­ter, during which the stu­dents broa­den their know­ledge base via in-depth courses spe­ci­fic to each spe­cial­ty. All five spe­cial­ties embo­dy the aims of the main research prio­ri­ties of the Labex MS2T and its three asso­ciate laboratories.
  • During the first semes­ter of M2, the stu­dents will be immer­sed in the Labex labo­ra­to­ries for a pro­ject-orien­ted work­shop and in-house semi­nars. In the fra­me­work of the pro­ject work­shop, the stu­dents can apply their new­ly acqui­red know­ledge and skills by wor­king on various research pro­jects pro­po­sed by research scien­tists and/or indus­trial part­ners. Each group, is com­po­sed with 4 to 6 stu­dents, gene­ral­ly coming from dif­ferent master's degree spe­cial­ties. The work­shop stress is pla­ced on inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ri­ty and pro­ject mana­ge­ment. Regar­ding the semi­nars tea­ching for­mat, the stu­dents attend the Labex MS2T research semi­nars and have to work on the in-depth treat­ment of one of the sub­jects dis­cus­sed, which leads to an oral report and ana­ly­sis by each student.
