Language of teaching

Courses fully taught in English during the two years.


This Master is aimed at students who wish to deepen their skills in modelling and numerical simulation of mechanical methods, both fluid and solid. The course covers the modelling of comlex mechanical systems involving a possible coupling of different pohysics at different scales.

In more general terms, the course provides with solid training in advanced techniques in scientific disciplines for the modelling of engineering problems.


This Master "Computational Mechanics" relies on the staff members and on the scientific and research facilities of the GeM "Institut de Recherche en Génie Civil et Mécanique".


The classes are closely related to current scientific issues and harness the expertise of a teaching team in direct contrat with industry.
