This specialism in Marine Technology aims to give students advanced training on typical problems of hydrodynamics applied to naval architecture and ocean engineering: ship resistance, seakeeping, ship behavior in irregular seas, water, waves, and marine environment... physical, modeling, and numerical aspects are studied.

The program includes theoretical courses on typical hydrodynamics problems: ship resistance, wave-induced motions, wave, and marine environment modeling ... and numerical methods used to solve these problems. A large part of the program is also devoted to the practical use of software to solve the problems cited above through a large variety of numerical methods: boundary elements or spectral methods under potential flow theory, finite-difference or finite-volume techniques in solvers for viscous flows, Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). Students are also involved in practical work using the ocean test facilities (towing tank, wave tank equipped with a multi flap wave generator, etc.)

The program of study lasts two academic years - denoted by M1 and M2 and is taught in English. It comprises three study semesters followed by a paid Master's thesis/internship in the final semester.

Our Master's programs in Marine Technology are fully accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Students applying for this specialism can also apply to join the Integrated Master-PhD track, which brings together the two years of the Master's degree and three years of PhD studies. The Integrated Master-PhD track is designed to give high-potential students exposure to research activities as soon as they join the M1 year.
