Program Description

Master in Atlantic Master on Ship Operation & Naval Engineering (M-TECH AMASONE)

Centrale Nantes

This programme allows its students to develop skills in naval engineering and to become engineers experienced in ship operations.

Two of the top French engineering schools - Centrale Nantes and the Ecole Navale Universities have teamed up to offer you a unique programme. An outstanding feature of this programme is that you will have on-board training sessions on French Navy vessels. You will get an insight into on-board practice to serve complex equipment and to fit in with the quick evolution of knowledge and techniques which is highly valuable for a naval engineer and of course highly regarded by industrial employers.

The programme of study lasts two academic years - denoted by M1 and M2. Courses are taught in English across the entire programme.

Skills developed

  • Model and understand the concepts of naval hydrodynamics,
  • Master the energetic and propulsion systems on ships
  • Integrate the human and technical constraints of operational maritime implementation

In addition to the above specialism-specific skills, students will also develop more general skills:

  • Identify models, perform simulation and analyse results
  • Communicate comprehensive results in a meaningful way
  • Undertake bibliographic surveys of international research and professional literature
  • Manage or be part of a project
