Research Institutions & Industrial Partners

Toulouse being the French capital of Space, the Master program benefits of a unique research and professional environment. It also profits from the strong connections with the aerospace and defence industries developed by faculty members of ENSEEIHT.

The Master program is supported by major actors in the field of satellite communications (Airbus Defense and Space, Thales Alenia Space, CNES, SES, EUTELSAT, INMARSAT…). The teaching staff is composed of faculty members who are part of major French research laboratories and experts of satellite industry.


Job opportunities:

The main sector of activity is satellite telecommunications, but graduates can integrate into the entire field of telecommunications.

Graduates are mainly hired by the major European players in the field of satellite telecommunications (system and service providers): industrials (Thales Alenia Space, Airbus Defense and Space, etc.), agencies (CNES, DLR, ESA, etc.), operators (EUTELSAT, SES, INMARSAT). Large companies in the field of telecommunications in general such as Thales and Orange for example are also employers. Graduates are also recruited by SMEs such as: CLS, Silicom, Sigfox, etc.
