Program description

This Master is designed to provide trouble shooting and solution oriented approach of problems encountered in composite applications, successively during the constituants selection, processing and mechanical design phases. Mostly fiber-reinforced organic-matrix composites will be of concern in this curriculum. Such composite materials and structures are strongly influenced by the constituting materials and processing stage. Therefore composite mechanical design can be efficiently and optimally performed when one has a good understanding of the manufacturing's influences and constraints. The curriculum offered within this master program will provide a theoretical emphasis on the relationships between constituants, processing, process modeling and structural design. Through lab sessions dedicated towards characterization, manufaturing, process modeling and design, their links and interactions will be underlined.

This Master is internationally recognized and accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education.

Fields of application

The courses rely on theoratical and applied cases given by the course leaders. Fields of applications are numerous: from energy (wind, marine), transportation (automative, aeronautics, rail, marine), and also niche markets such as sports and leisure or bio-medical.
