Semester 1 : Sustainable Computer Network Engineering. (30 ECTS)

The objective is to provide students with fundamental competences in computer networks and systems engineering in a sustainable way. Part of student education is a project which is initiated by one of consortium partners, spans three semesters and leads to a thesis project. All the courses are delivered at the University of Lorraine

Course 1: Communication protocols (6 ECTS) – Pr. T. Divoux

Course 2: Quality of Sustainable Service (6 ECTS) – Pr.  F. Lepage

Course 3: Automatic Control for Sustainable Development (3 ECTS) – Dr J.P. Georges

The Research Center for Automatic Control in Nancy (CRAN) is participating and managing many research projects in the environmental domain. The objective of this course is to present to students an umbrella of results on how using Automatic Control in the context of sustainable development.

Examples of topics : 

  • Control theory applied to hybrid vehicles
  • Image processing for environmental applications
  • Data-based continuous-time modelling and validation of rainfall-flow processes,...

Course 4: Systems Engineering (3 ECTS) – Dr. F. Mayer

Model-Based Systems-Engineering (MBSE) is presented as a key iterative, collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to define, to develop and to deploy systems in general. MBSE is then applied to ICT domain in order to enhance a better interoperation between system components, humans as well as technologies, and then to contribute to meet eco-efficiency for C2C issues beyond conventional Business and PLM efficiency.

The aims of these modules are to discover and understand:

  • “Systems Thinking” basics,
  • Systems Engineering Process-based and Model-based” best-practices,
  • “Systems Modeling Language” essentials artifacts to support a SE process,
  • “MBSE’ practice to meet eco-efficiency requirements for ICT.

Case study (labs) : Design ICT-based system for monitoring Indoor air pollution.

Course 5: Sustainable development & circular economy (3 ECTS) – Pr. E. Rondeau

Course 6: Specification definition of Master thesis project (3 ECTS) – Pr. E. Rondeau

A list of individual topics is proposed to students in the beginning of semester 1. The students select one topic in October. Thus, the students have two years to work on their Master thesis.

Course 7: French Culture and Language (3 ECTS)

The students start the semester 1 with intensive courses in French to help them in their daily-life in France. Different cultural events are also organized.

Some examples:

Seminar: (3 ECTS) a selection (done by the Universities) of courses provided by other Partners.

The courses in France are not only given by French professors. The students are also in contact with world-class experts.
