SUPELEC is one of the top engineering schools in France with a highly competitive entrance exam, which specializes in the general field of electrical, electronics and computer engineering including telecommunications, electromagnetics, microwaves, electronic devices, control systems, and energy systems. The school has research cooperation and student exchange programs with leading universities and academic institutions worldwide. In this talk, we first present the dual system in the French Higher Education, with the Engineering Schools called Grandes Ecoles on one side and the Universities on the other. Then, we present SUPELEC, describing its environment, engineering curriculum, master programs, other education programs, and the topics of research carried out in its various departments and groups. Then, the second part of the presentation will present the master program “Advanced wireless communications systems”, in which the teaching language is English in order to break the language barrier and allow foreign students to attend this program without going through French courses. The talk will highlight the opportunities for research cooperation and student exchanges, with a particular emphasis for students interested in the master program “Advanced wireless communications systems”.
