Program Description

Master of Engineering in Computational Mechanics

Centrale Nantes

Master of Engineering in Computational Mechanics

This Master is internationally recognized and accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education. The quality of its courses has been recognized in the prestigious Erasmus Mundus framework of the European Commission

Language of teaching

Courses fully taught in English during the two years.


The course covers the modelling of complex mechanical systems involving a possible coupling of different physics at different scales.

In more general terms, the course provides solid training in advanced techniques in scientific computing at the interface between 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 individual classes adopt a global approach towards the issue associated with numerical modelling, from the construction of models and their discretization to the numerical resolution of discrete models, and to the mathematical analysis of models and approximation methods.

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

Application requirements

  • Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Science or Equivalent. (Students in their final year of undergraduate study may be admitted on the condition that their bachelor's degrees are awarded before they enroll at Centrale Nantes.)
