Complementary Engineering

The aim of this pathway is to offer Master's students the opportunity to follow an engineering course at a school in the Institut Mines-Télécom network.


Building on the complementarity of engineering training with the specialties of the various Master's courses, it is available as a double Master's and Engineering degree. Students selected for the program follow specially adapted paths, with students from the Institut Mines-Télécom and its partner establishments able to obtain the Sciences et Numérique pour la Santé master's degree from the University of Montpellier in addition to their engineering diploma, while students in the master's program are able to obtain an engineering diploma from one of the Institut Mines-Télécom schools in addition to their master's degree.

The TIC & Santé Montpellier training program is aimed at students from the fields of IT, electronics and automation, as well as physics, biology, medicine, dentistry and pharmacy. Since 2010, over 200 professionals have been trained, nearly 20% of them through continuing or permanent education. Job opportunities are mainly in technology companies, IT consulting and service firms, and the healthcare sector: hospitals, healthcare providers, insurance and prevention.
