Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

This department groups students according to the following majors of the General Engineering degree: Imaging, Signals and Data Science; Electronics and Embedded Systems; Systems Engineering, Control Theory and Vision.

It covers all the disciplines of Télécom Physique Strasbourg that are related to:

  • signals, whether in analog or digital form, mono-dimensional or multidimensional, representing temporal data such as sound, spatial data such as image, or spatio-temporal data such as video
  • systems as a complex and structured set of constantly interactive mechanical, electronic and computer components such as robots, embedded systems or electronic circuits that perform useful tasks.

Imaging, Signals and Data Science

This major addresses problems and methods related to the processing and analysis of signals, images and data. The training includes both methodological and application modules, practical work being an important part of the course.

The problems of image and data processing and analysis (Data Science) are becoming increasingly important in the activities of companies and research structures. This evolution is due to the massive availability of data (more and more powerful scientific imagers, data generated by human activities and connected objects), which must be exploited. Students have the possibility to follow a Master’s dual degree program via the Image and Data course of the Imaging, Robotics and Biomedical Engineering Master's degree.

Electronics and Embedded Systems

Through the Electronics and Embedded Systems major, students are able to complete their skills in Electronics acquired during the first two years with concepts specific to the design of embedded systems (methodologies for designing complex heterogeneous systems, high frequency and radio frequency circuits, modulation/demodulation, programming) including a project to build an embedded system.

Considering the omnipresence of embedded systems in a wide variety of fields such as automotive, avionics, medical instrumentation, biotechnology, environment, industrial process control, consumer electronics, etc., the specialization in Electronics and Embedded Systems coupled with the general engineering program at Télécom Physique Strasbourg provide them with all the necessary assets to meet these challenges, which naturally places them at the intersection of different fields.

Students enrolled in the 3rd year of this major have access to the Master's degree in Science and Technology with a major in Applied Physics and Physical Engineering and a specialization in Micro and Nanoelectronics.

Systems Engineering, Control Theory and Vision

The courses in this major aim to provide students with transversal skills in the fields of robotics, computer vision, advanced control and industrial computing, with a considerable period dedicated to practice in the form of projects.

The Engineers must be capable of meeting the new challenges related to the factory of the future (robotics, field networks, connected objects, supervision systems), autonomous systems (autonomous vehicles, drones, personal assistance) and energy transition (smart-grids, energy optimization, sustainable engineering).

The skills acquired allow for the modeling, simulation, control and optimization of complex dynamic systems. These systems use information not only from simple sensors, but also from more sophisticated sensors that have recently appeared in the industry, such as the cameras used to control a manipulator arm or a mobile robot in real time.

Dual degree programs are available through the Control Theory and Robotics course of the Imaging, Robotics and Biomedical Engineering Master’s degree.
