The French as a foreign language class focuses on course material which has yet to be translated to help clarify its logical structure. 


ECTS credits

Studies at INSA Rennes are flexible as the school uses the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), a European standard for comparing study attainment. When courses are successfully completed, the students earn credits ; the normal total for an INSA student being 30 credits per semester. The student's choice has to be approved by both the home university and INSA. Our ICT departments have designed a coherent package of credit-earning courses for international students. Exchange students may select other courses on condition that the course is given during the first semester and is compatible with the autumn semester calendar.

Optoelectronics

Optoelectronics (Year 5)

Autumn semester in English from October to January

Training Objectives

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (SGM*) trains engineers in design, research, development and production. The skills developed are those required to work in areas of high technology such as new materials, micro- and opto-electronic devices and nanotechnology.
The SGM Department offers an autumn-semester program centered on optoelectronic engineering with courses in English. International students registered for this semester join French students specializing in the field of optoelectronics with a focus on semiconductor component design.

Syllabus

The autumn semester lasts from October, 1st to the end of January.
Courses are given in English either for the oral presentation or for the written material (mostly both).
Students may choose to undertake SGM courses in addition to those listed above, however only those mentioned above will be taught in English. 

A broad spectrum in the field of optoelectronics is covered; from the elaboration, characterization and theoretical modeling of quantum nanostructures, to the design of optical waveguides or the use of nonlinear optics for faster all-optical functionality.
The French as a foreign language class focuses on course material which has yet to be translated to help clarify its logical structure.

Data

Data and Programming (Year 4)

Spring semester in English from January/February to May

A Formal and Research-oriented Approach

Training Objectives 

The department of Computer Science  and Software Engineering (INFO*) trains high-level research and development (R&D) engineers in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It offers a spring semester, taught in English, to M1 (first year Masters) level students. It is centered on formal aspects of Data and Programming.
Concurrently to academic courses a research project will be conducted at IRISA, a research center of international renown. The project will be in one of the following teams (please contact the corresponding person to make sure that a project is still available).
