About us

Our connections

Located in the heart of the Europe of Science and Technology, Télécom Physique Strasbourg (TPS) is not only a School of Engineering affiliated to the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT), but also a unit of the Institut Carnot "Télécom et société numérique" as well as an internal school of the Université de Strasbourg (Unistra).

TPS is strongly involved in the ITM Grand Est which is a unique and ambitious partnership and cooperation network signed in July 2018 between the ITM and 6 engineering schools in the Grand Est region of France (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 and capacities between these institutions for innovation purposes and also to serve the local territory.

As a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, the Concours Commun INP group and the Concours Mines-Télécom group, the School is partner to the réseau Alsace Tech which gathers engineering, architecture and management schools in Alsace.  TPS is also 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 health and data economics.

Admission to training courses is based on a competitive examination (CC INP and Mines Télécom) and on application. The courses at Télécom Physique Strasbourg are organised 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, IT and Networks (digital infrastructure and communicating objects), Data Processing (data science / Big Data which includes signal and image processing), Optics and Laser as well as Engineering for Healthcare.

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 globalised 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 laboratories 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 double 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, able to manage a team and 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 the immediate needs of companies and the essential adaptability to ongoing technological change.
