About this program

Graduate Degree in Internet of Things: Innovation and Management

In our digital era, connected objects have permeated all levels of industry and technology. These objects range from mobile phones to watches, media platforms, utility grids and even medical devices. The data generated by them facilitates new interactions and business models, with the potential for extreme impacts on traditional economic systems and, even, social habits.

This Internet of Things: Innovation and Management Program (IoT-IM) Graduate Degree program has been developed based on the Ecole Polytechnique’s trademark multidisciplinary approach. By attending this program, students will gain the necessary knowledge and expertise in the entire connected objects’ ecosystem; all the way from the electronics to the economics of connected objects. The program is aimed towards future entrepreneurs, engineers, and IT/IoT consultants with a passion for the internet of things as well as the curiosity to investigate the many sectors that overlap in this field.

Program content

Year 1 – Basics and start of practical work

Year 1 of the Program is divided into three trimesters: two trimesters of classes and one trimester dedicated to the Graduate Project.
Classes: In trimester 1, all students take the same classes wherein they learn the theoretical and conceptual basics required to continue on the Program. Trimester 2 has fewer classes and students begin to put their trimester 1 knowledge into practice through workshops and their Graduate Project.
The full-day workshops involve a morning theoretical seminar (e.g. on Bluetooth) and a practical class in the afternoon, during which students are given a few hours to solve a practical problem. The goal of these workshops is to train students to become experts in their chosen technology.
Graduate Project: In trimester 2, students who choose to collaborate with a company must prove that they have the necessary skills to carry out their assigned tasks. Students who opt to do a personal project are supported along the way by their professors. Year 1 ends with a four-month trimester dedicated to a project completed at a company or chosen individually by the student.

Year 2 – Specialization

Students can choose a large number of their classes and pursue hard sciences, economics, electronics, security, or any other domain related to the world of connected objects.
Classes: After getting to grips with the essentials of the Program in Year 1, students are ready to specialize. They can choose a large number of their classes and pursue hard sciences, economics, electronics, security, or any other domain related to the world of connected objects, provided that their decision is in line with their Graduate Project. No matter which direction they choose, our students learn how to design connected objects, become familiar with the ecosystem in which these objects operate, and gain understanding of the governing economic models.
Graduate Project: Students work on their Graduate Project all throughout Year 2. Under the guidance of a dedicated supervisor, they spend a day and a half per week developing an entirely new project or continuing on with the one they began in Year 1. The Master’s Program ends with four months entirely devoted to completion of the student’s Graduate Project, done at a company or chosen individually.


The cost of this program is €13,000 per year
