Advanced Master’s in Networks and Services

This Advanced Master program is taught 75% in French and 25% in English.

Become an expert in network architecture and related services

The convergence of networks (voice and data) and computing naturally results in the creation of new types of services and applications, the development of network architecture and new uses (big data, connected objects (IoT), security, cloud computing and interoperability)

Companies must be able to continuously update these components to offer new services built on the latest technological advances.
