Training Objectives

The departments of Electronics and Computer Engineering (EII*), Computer Science and Software Engineering (INFO*) and Electronics and telecommunications (ET*) train high-level research and development (R&D) engineers inthe field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

These three ICT departments offer an autumn semester centered on media and communication networks. International students registered for this semester will join French students and attend courses in communication networks, embedded systems and digital image processing.



The autumn semester lasts from mid-September to the end of January. Courses are given in English. A summary of proposed courses is given in the table below:

For a detailed description of the content of each course:

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.

Application deadline: May 31th, 2020

This non-fee-paying autumn-semester program works on the basis of an exchange between the applicant’s home University and INSA Rennes. Therefore, in order for fees to be waived, an agreement (Erasmus or other) must be established beforehand.
