Master in Mechanics

The programme offers the following course(s)

Presentation

Course co-accredited by the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble and Université Grenoble Alpes

The Master in MECHANICS is structured around four programmes: Simulation and Instrumentation in Mechanics (SIM), Mechanical Engineering (GM), Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) and Fluid Mechanics and Energetics (FME).

The second year (M2) of the SIM and GM programmes involve work-linked training in a company or research laboratory. Teaching is given in French.

The EFM and FME programmes welcome international students. Teaching is given in English.

 

The two programmes, SIM and GM, consist of:

  • a foundation programme (over M1+M2) of 33 ECTS
  • specialised classes for each programme (57 ECTS)
  • work-linked training through an internship (30 ECTS)

The M1 Applied Mechanics is entirely common to the two specialisations Civil Engineering and Mechanics and leads to three international programmes, including EFM and FME.

The EFM and FME programmes consist of a foundation programme of 45 ECTS, specialised classes for each programme (45 ECTS), and an internship (30 ECTS).

Objectives

SIM programme: The aim of this programme is to train managers with a very high level of expertise in simulation and instrumentation applied to Fluid and Solid Mechanics, who will be responsible for research and development in major groups and SMEs in various sectors such as aviation, automotive, rail, environment, etc.

GM programme: The main purpose of this programme is to train managers with scientific, technical and professional knowledge in the fields of mechanical engineering, especially in the design and production of mechanical systems. The professions targeted by this programme are managers responsible for developing and making industrial products (numerical simulation, R&D, production, design, quality management, project management, etc.) in major groups and SMEs in the engineering industry, in various sectors such as aviation, automotive, nuclear, agri-food and plastics processing.

EFM programme: The aim of this programme is to give students scientific and technical skills in environmental fluid mechanics (lakes, rivers, ocean, atmosphere, etc.) from theoretical, numerical and experimental perspectives. The content of each course ranges from fundamental aspects through to applications. This research programme offers two main career opportunities: doctoral studies in environmental fluid mechanics, either in France or abroad, with a view to pursuing a career as teacher-researcher in a university, researcher in a large public organisation (CNRS/INRA, CEA, etc.), or R&D engineer within a company in the water or environmental engineering sectors.

FME programme: On completion of this programme, students should have acquired scientific and technical skills in fluid mechanics and transfers (thermal, chemical) from theoretical, numerical and experimental perspectives. This programme is mainly intended for students wishing to prepare for doctoral studies in fluid mechanics and transfers (thermal, chemical), either in France or abroad, with a view to pursuing a career as teacher-researcher in a university, researcher in a large public organisation (CNRS, CEA, etc.), or R&D engineer within a company in sectors such as energy or transport.

Entrance requirements

Public continuing education:

You are in charge of continuing education:

  •      if you resume your studies after 2 years of interruption of studies,
  •      or if you followed a formation under the regime formation continues one of the 2 preceding years
  •      or if you are an employee, job seeker, self-employed.

If you do not have the diploma required to integrate the training, you can undertake a validation of personal and professional achievements (VAPP).
