Faculty and Research Facilities

This Master relies on the Centrale Nantes’ faculty, staff and research facilities of the LS2N Research Institute and other faculty members from the University of Nantes, as well as modules, delivered experts from companies. Centrale Nantes has several industrial partnerships (Airbus, DCNS, Michelin, Alstom, Dassault Systems, Renault, Faurecia, etc.), service bureaux and start-up companies.

M2 (2nd year) - Agile Factory Management

This Master develops skills for agile manufacturing management based on operational research methods and production management approaches, such as lean, adaptive and reactive management.

The courses rely on both theoretical and practical aspects and cover the following areas: enterprise and complex system design, modelling and engineering; production management; simulation and multi-criteria optimization of industrial processes; economy and social aspects for industrial engineering; logistics; operational research; shop floor scheduling; design and control of production cyber-physical systems.

Language of instruction: English.

M2 Course Content - Autumn Semester (30 ECTS)

  • Production management
  • Logistics
  • Operations research
  • Shop floor scheduling
  • Multi-criteria decision making and decision support
  • Integrated design and implementation of cyber-physical production systems (CPPS)
  • Conferences
  • Modern languages

NB Course content may be subject to minor changes.

M2 Course Content - Spring Semester (30 ECTS)

  • Master Thesis or Industrial Internship

Specific Skills Developed

  • Master modelling and simulation of production systems
  • Master optimisation methods for production systems control
  • Master the new concepts and performance indicators of the smart and agile factory

Job Prospects for employment or further study
