Mechanical Engineering

One of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines, Mechanical Engineering applies principles of physics and materials science to develop, design, analyze, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. Applications in business, print media, statistics, design engineering, systems and controls, architecture, manufacturing, modeling, packaging, power machines and complex assemblies are just some of the many professional functions to which graduates from Master in Mechanical Engineering programs can apply their skills.

Most Master in Mechanical Engineering programs begin with foundational courses in advanced mathematics and science, such as statistics and physics, and continue with specialized courses in optimization, engineering materials, systems design, manufacturing engineering and management. Applicants to Master in Mechanical Engineering programs must have completed a bachelor's degree with a major in Engineering or a closely related field. Most full-time Master in Mechanical Engineering programs last two years, while part time, online or distance learning study options are available and may influence the length of time required to complete the degree. Offered at universities and institutions in Austria, China, France, Poland, Qatar, Taiwan, Turkey, UAE, the UK and the USA, among others, there is a Master in Mechanical Engineering program to suit every student.

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.

Masters in Mechanical Engineering. Master’s Programme in Mechanical Engineering with Emphasis on Structural Engineering The aim of the program is to have the student prepare for participation in advanced product development or research within mechanical engineering. The aim is that the student after completed degree should master a coordinated working method at analysis for decision support in the product development process, the extensive modules of virtual and physical modelling, simulation and experimental investigation and optimisation. Coordinated working method at analysis for decision support. The student is expected to inform herself/himself about current field-relevant research and considerably increase her/his ability to communicate her/his own contributions with scientific facts and relations both orally and in writing by means of modern tools for visualisation and documentation. The coordinated working method can in short be described according to: Virtual models for description of interesting product properties and behaviours are developed, verified and used for simulations of the functionality of the system. The Simulation result is compared with experimental results of studies on delimited parallelly developed physical models, or with experiences from earlier development, with the aim of validating the virtual models. The coordination also implies that the virtual models are used to design good physical models and measurement strategies. This process is repeated until sufficient agreement is achieved. Simulation with the virtual model can then be used for optimisation. If the optimisation shows a need for changes that influence the relevance for the current model, the whole procedure is repeated. More detailed descriptions are,... [-]
