Masters 2017 in Albi France. ACCREDITATION Master accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Opening in September 2016. KEY WORDS Renewable feedstocks, eco-technology, processing, design, assessment, environmental burdens, green business, social responsability SCHOOL PROPOSING THE MASTER Mines Albi, in co-accreditation with Institut Mines Telecom, Paris, France LANGUAGE OF TEACHING English INCENTIVE Given the current context of natural resource depletion, environmental and public health crises related to air and water pollution, pressures on energy supplies, we are facing a paradigm shift. The linear model “take, make, consume and dispose” is progressively being replaced by a 4R approach “repair, refurbish, reuse and recycle”. The circular economy is becoming day after day a new development strategy for nations. Better eco-design, waste prevention and reuse bring significant net savings for businesses, while also reducing environmental harm and bringing new job opportunities. Turning biomass and waste into a valuable resource is at the heart of this strategy. Generating new materials, processes and markets requires global high-level training, including science, technology, regulatory knowledge, management and economics. All these innovative systems will emerge at the crossroads of process engineering, chemistry, fluid mechanics, thermal science, environmental sciences and economics as well as social sciences and humanities. BiWEM was created to satisfy the growing needs of this dynamic sector. COURSE AIMS The objectives of BiWEM are to provide students with a sound theoretical and practical specialised knowledge in the field of biomass and waste processing. Students in the program will acquire the ability to design economically viable biological or thermochemical processes for the conversion of biomass and waste into new materials or energy carriers, within a sustainable development frame. Consequently, BiWEM focus on chemical engineering but also includes courses on economics, international regulations and on certain areas of the social sciences and humanities. PROGRAM This is a full-time program of 2 years divided into four semesters: lectures, tutorials and practical work over the 3 academic semesters followed by an internship of one semester in a company or in a public research lab. The program is composed of four teaching blocks, including an integrated team project over the three academic semesters under the supervision of expert practitioners. Overall, 25% of the classes are devoted to practice. 1. Environmental and social economic issues (25 ECTS) Ethics, management and economics of the environment Corporate social responsibility Ecotechnologies and innovation Global environmental business 2. Fundamental science and generic engineering tools (21 ECTS) Fundamentals of transport phenomena, applied chemistry, biochemistry, metabolic pathways Generic numerical and experimental methods for process optimization and engineering Process modeling, integration and assessment 3.

Master Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures (AMPAS)

Ecole Des Mines D’Albi-Carmaux | EMAC
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 France Albi

The Advanced Master course AMPAS, is designed by Mines Albi and ISAE with the support of aeronautical industry partners. [+]

Master Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures (AMPAS) A booming industry After a short recession period, the Aeronautical industry market is facing a rapid and continuous increase worldwide as shown by the record breaking contracts recently signed by both Airbus and Boeing. These two industry leaders forecast an increase of close to 5% in activity over the next years and estimations indicate that the annual increase of large commercial airplanes will induce a doubling of the number of aircraft by 2030. Nearly sixty percent of the turnover is subcontracted all over the world and concerns mostly production and manufacturing activities. As a consequence most aeronautical subcontracting companies will have to increase their production rates but also to keep up to date with technological changes; moving from metallic processes toward composite materials processes. Moreover the aircraft manufacturers have changed their supply chain structure in the last years, and subcontractors are now required to manage more complex parts and to take over, on their own, the qualification processes. At the heart of Europes Aerospace Valley The Midi-Pyrénées is home to the global headquarters of Airbus and over 600 subcontracting businesses, employing more than 60,000 employees. The French space agency (CNES), as well as Thales and EADS Astrium are also present in the area along with their lot of subcontractors. The Ecole des Mines d’Albi and Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE), have both a proven track record of leading research and working alongside industrial partners in the aeronautics industry. This master program is accredited by the French “Conference des Grandes Ecoles” A formation tailored to the need of the industry The Advanced Master course AMPAS, is designed by Mines Albi and ISAE with the support of aeronautical industry partners. It will give a specialization to master level students allowing them to take over high level responsibilities in airframe structure manufacturing plants. It is especially well suited to students who have followed general studies in mechanical engineering, material science or equivalent and who would like to gain a major chance to be recruited by aeronautical industry. To reach this goal, AMPAS master students will develop: general knowledge of flight dynamics constrains and airframe design knowledge and understanding of the airframe materials and processes and their qualification constrains knowledge, understanding and practice of the prevalent processes for structural applications with either metallic or fiber reinforced thermoset composites materials ability to use state of the art simulation tools for definition and optimization of metallic sheet forming and RTM/infusion process knowledge of the aeronautical supply chain structure and their communication rules understanding of the aeronautic dedicated quality and management requirements knowledge and practice of lean manufacturing tools ability to undertake manufacturing projects in an international team environment ability to communicate with written reports and by oral presentation Lecturers Professoral staff form Ecole des Mines Albi and ISAE (Institut Supérieur de l'Aeronautique) and more generally from University of Toulouse Experts form Aeronautical Insdustry, especially from AIRBUS and supply chain Experts from certification, quality, supply chain organization and management Requirements Applicants must have a Master degree, or an equivalent degree in science or engineering, or a bachelor degree with 3 years of professional experience at least. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79 Contents A balance of theoretical learning and practical experience: The course consists of 75 credits mixing academic teaching and professional experience. First semester: academic term of 450h and 45 credits, provided by permanent professors of Mines Albi and ISAE and expert practitioners from aerospace industry to bring current knowledge and experience. The teaching, balancing academic lessons with more applied practice. Second semester: Professional thesis in the aeronautical industry or in an academic research lab in collaboration with aeronautical industrial partners, in France or abroad. The duration is from 5 to 6 months and corresponds to 30 credits. Students are supervised by a tutor from the host organization and from Mines Albi or ISAE. Thesis is concluded by the preparation of a final report and an oral dissertation in front of a jury. Syllabus The academic course consists of 450 hours of taught modules aiming to provide a deep knowledge of the three main material families used in airframe structures (i.e. aluminum, titanium and long fiber reinforced polymer composites) as well as their related forming routes relevant to aeronautical industries. It is also devoted to gain knowledge in aircraft architecture, on aeronautical supply chain specificities, lean manufacturing and quality management required to be able to take over technical and organizational responsibilities in industry. A team project (100 hours) will demonstrate the ability to address an aeronautical part processing problem following the theoretical and professional skills. In more details: 1.
