Master in Civil engineering

Geomechanics, Civil Engineering and Risks (GCER)

Presentation and goals

The international GCER programme, co-accredited with G-INP, is based on:

  • the international M1, which is entirely common to the two specialisations Civil Engineering and Mechanics and leads to three international programmes, including GCER.
  • at M2 level, three specialised courses worth 3 ECTS are common to the HCE programme and the ENSE3, one module worth 3 ECTS is common to the HCE, and one specialised course is shared with the STE specialisation. More than 80% of the courses in this programme at M2 level are part of the Earthquake Engineering programme of the Erasmus Mundus MEEES (Master in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology).

The Geomechanics, Civil Engineering and Risks (GCER) Programme is an international course primarily intended for students wishing to focus on research (PhD thesis) in the field of geomechanics and civil engineering in France or abroad, with a view to pursuing a career as teacher-researcher in a University, researcher in a large public organisation (CNRS, etc.) or R&D engineer within a company.
