Located in the heart of the Europe of Science and Technology, Télécom Physique Strasbourg (TPS) is not only affiliated to the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) – a group of French engineering and management graduate schools – but is also a unit of the Institut Carnot "Télécom et société numérique" – an R&D public institution specialized in digital innovation – as well as an internal institution of the Université de Strasbourg (Unistra).
TPS is strongly involved in the IMT Grand Est which is a unique and ambitious partnership and cooperation network signed in July 2018 between the IMT and 6 engineering schools in the French East region (Mines Nancy, Télécom Nancy, Géologie Nancy, GIP InSIC, Télécom Physique Strasbourg, and the École et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre). The network aims at developing collaborations between these institutions and enhancing potential for innovation purposes and also at serving the local territory.
As a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (a national society including mainly graduate schools but also private companies as well as organizations in the fields of engineering, management, politics, etc.), the Concours Communs Institut National Polytechnique group and the Concours Mines-Télécom group (both managing national competitive exams for graduate schools), TPS also partners with the réseau Alsace Tech which gathers engineering, architecture and management schools in Alsace, and is a member of the réseau Ampère with which it is involved in international actions (incoming and outgoing mobility).
Our courses are organised into 4 study areas
Authorized to award 5 Engineering degrees by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieurs (CTI), the vocation of the School is to train creative and innovative Research and Development (R&D) Engineers in the strategic activity sectors, namely the new digital economy, engineering for healthcare and data economics.
Admission to training courses is based on a highly competitive national examination (CCINP and Mines-Télécom) and on application. The courses at Télécom Physique Strasbourg are organized into 4 study areas.
The Director’s message
The main fields of expertise of our Engineers relate to Physics, Microelectronics and Nanosciences, Automation and Robotics, Computer Science and Networks (Digital Infrastructures and Internet of Things), Data Processing (Data Science / Big Data which includes Signal and Image Processing), Optics and Laser as well as Engineering for Healthcare.
The students trained at Télécom Physique Strasbourg are thus able to meet the challenges linked to Information and Communications Technology (ICT), accessing one of the largest employment pools for today's executives in a globalized environment with strong growth prospects driven by the 3rd industrial revolution under way with the exponential development of the digital Economy.
The school is supported by two research institutes of the University of Strasbourg with international visibility, namely ICube and the IPCMS, which allows for outstanding options and studies with the possibility of a dual degree (Engineering + Master’s) for students who wish to include a research path to their curriculum.
The educational project of TPS is versatile: providing high scientific- and technical- level Engineers with multiple skills, the ability to manage a team and to become the driving forces behind the development of their company. It is also a question of reconciling the development of the two fundamental qualities of today's Engineer: the ability to meet immediate needs of companies and the essential adaptability to ongoing technological change.
