Master in Mechanics

Applied Mechanics 1st year

Presentation and goals

The 1st international year, 'Applied Mechanics', totally common to both programms of Civil Engineering and Mechanics and which opens on three international courses, including GCER for the second year.


This Master Course gives you the opportunity to apply to the UGA Graduate School and one of its 15 thematic programs. The Graduate School@UGA is a new training program through and for research which was launched in 2021 within the Université Grenoble Alpes, and which concerns all the schools and components of the UGA.

The objective of these thematic programs is to offer interested students an interdisciplinary training program and academic excellence combining university studies and laboratory internships. Each thematic program develops a specific line of research, allowing then to embark on a PhD, or to have a direct professional insertion.

The program regroups students registered in different mentions, master programs or engineer school tracks and working together in specific courses.

Participation in the Graduate School@UGA is for two years (M1 and M2) and may open the possibility of obtaining an academic scholarship for two years for the best international students (non-French baccalaureate holders).
