Grenoble Institute of Technology’s MSc in Cognitive Sciences celebrated its 20th anniversary this summer. This year’s cohort of 12 students was invited to attend the festivities, which were also attended by many of the program’s 300 alumni and experts.
This one-year degree program is designed to prepare graduates for careers in research. It was founded in 1992 by a group of then-pioneering scientists and has since built a strong reputation in the field. Some 80 PhD candidates have come through the program, which is an anchor of Grenoble’s Cognition Center (with 13 labs employing 200 researchers). The program is highly cross-disciplinary, covering signal processing, IT, psychology, and linguistics. All four of Grenoble’s universities are partners in the program.
