About this course
At École Polytechnique, we firmly believe that solid technical and scientific know-how must be complemented by a thorough understanding of the economic, regulatory and societal context, in order to form a complete and competent engineer. The CO4DiS program aims to provide such an understanding through the study of six thematic pillars and how they apply specifically to the world of connected objects:
> Electronics: objects, captors, sensors, and more
> Communications: connectivity, data transmission
> Software Systems: embedded systems, cloud and data exploitation
> Law & Regulation: intellectual property, individual rights & data protection
> Economics: monetization of data, business models
> Society & Sociology: behavioral interaction, social changes
The coursework of your degree will allow you to study with faculty members and work in the very laboratories where several of the communication protocols used for smart grids and software systems were invented.
