II. Master Classes

The pedagogical objective of the Master Classes is to offer an in-depth exposure to specialized topics, typically with an industrial and/or applied angle, or to topics which are novel and innovative, and not covered in any of the regular academic courses. Master Classes are intensive seminars, affording students the ability to balance their academic learning with best-practices from engineers in professional exercise, or affording students the ability to confront themselves with the frontiers of scientific research. Students must validate the Master Classes by presence (mandatory) and by participation.

• Life Cycle Analysis
• Technology and Society analysis
• Hardware and Software Co-Design
• Data-Center Networking
• Information-Centric Networking

III. The Graduate Project - Entrepreneurship Track

The pedagogical objective of the Graduate Project is for students to document acquired skills in the application of scientific and technological tools, theories, and methods, in a development project relevant to the overall thematics of the program Internet of Things. 

The Graduate Project is undertaken in a small group of 2-3 students.

During the Graduate Project, the students are to demonstrate, and ultimately document in their Graduate Thesis, the ability to:
• Work in a small, technical, team, on developing a Connected Object, including the environment (back-end, data analysis, economic model, ...):
• Perform a bibliographic survey and identify relevant reference materials 
• Develop a coherent and relevant problem statement
• Develop, and execute, a project plan
• Develop, and execute, a test plan
• Produce a working prototype, and a convincing demonstration hereof
• Analyze the societal, ecological, and economical, impact and viability, of their "Connected Object".
• Document and present, clearly and pedagogically, the result of their work, as well underlaying analysis, in a Graduate Thesis.

The Graduate Project formally commences 4 weeks after the start of the first academic year. During those 4 weeks, the student group will be formed, and work together to develop a Graduate Project Synopsis. During these 4 weeks, the group will also be associated with a main academic advisor, who will follow the Graduate Project for its entire duration.

The main academic advisor meets regularly with the students to suggest directions, assist in developing a scientific and engineering strategy, assist  in identifying and reaching out to external expertise, as needed, and offer continuous critical reviews of their work as it progresses.
