Presentation

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

The master in Mechanics is structured around four programs: Simulation and instrumentation in mechanics (SIM), Mechanical engineering (GM), Environmental fluid mechanics (EFM) and Fluid mechanics and energetics (FME). The second year of the SIM and GM programs involve work-linked training in a company or research laboratory. Teaching is given in French. The EFM and FME programs welcome international students. Teaching is given in English.

The two programs SIM and GM, consist of:

  • A foundation program (over the 2 years) of 33 ECTS
  • Specialised classes for each program (57 ECTS)
  • Work-linked training through an internship (30 ECTS)

The 1st year Applied mechanics is entirely common to the two specialisations Civil engineering and Mechanics and leads to three international programs, including EFM and FME. The EFM and FME programs consist of a foundation program of 45 ECTS, specialised classes for each program (45 ECTS), and an internship (30 ECTS).

The objectives of the master in Mechanics are :

  • SIM program: The aim of this program 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 program : The main purpose of this program 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 program 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 program: The aim of this program 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 program 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 program : On completion of this program, students should have acquired scientific and technical skills in fluid mechanics and transfers (thermal, chemical) from theoretical, numerical and experimental perspectives. This program 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

    Access conditions

    • The first year of the master's degree is accessible on file (and / or interview) to candidates with a national diploma conferring the degree of license in a field compatible with that of the master or via a validation of studies or acquired according to the conditions determined by the university or training
    • The 2nd year is accessible on file (and / or interview) to candidates who have validated the 1st year of a compatible path or through a validation of studies or acquired according to the conditions determined by the university or training

    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)
