Program Description

Master of Engineering in Advanced Manufacturing (M-ENG AM)

Centrale Nantes

This Master program develops skills for providing innovative and optimized solutions in the advanced design and manufacturing of products and structures for both research and industry.

The courses rely on both theoretical and practical aspects and cover the following areas: mechanical design of innovative mechanisms and products and customer-oriented design of products. Technical, human and economic factors are taken into account.

The program of study lasts two academic years - denoted by M1 and M2. Advanced Manufacturing is one of four specialisms available within the Mechanical Engineering stream.

The language of instruction is English across the two years.

The program was formerly entitled Design of Systems and Products.

Skills Developed

  • Develop innovative processes and products for composite and metallic materials and structures.
  • Design products adapted to the processes.
  • Work in an integrated numerical environment and in a design & manufacturing global chain.

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

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

Prospects for employment or further study

  • Sectors: Aeronautics, Automotive, Transportation, Wind and Marine Energy, Mechanics, Consulting.
  • Fields: Mechanical Engineering, Design, Materials, Advanced Processes, Additive Manufacturing, Research, and Innovation.
  • Positions: Mechanical Engineer, Process Engineer, Design Engineer, Research and Innovation Engineer (post Ph.D.).
