Formation initiale

The Master is fully recognized and accreditated by the French Ministry of Higher Education.

The quality of this Master has been recogniezd by the European Comission by supporting the European Master of Science in Computational Mechanics in the Erasmus Mundus framework.
    Logo Erasmus Mundus
The network established by the researchers engaged in the programme guaranties international exposure to the students. The programme of study lasts two years and gives a total of 120 credits.

Langues d'enseignement

100% of the language of instruction and examination is English for the 2 years.
Besides, 160 hours of French language courses are given during the 1st year.


The individual classes adopt a global approach towards the issues associated with numerical modelling, from the construction of models and their discretization to the numerical resolution of discrete models, and to the mathematical analysis of models and approximation methods.


This Master is aimed at students who wish to deepen their skills in modelling and numerical simulation of mechanical models, both fluid and solid. The course covers the modelling of complex mechanical systems involving a possible coupling of different physics at different scales.
In more general terms, the course provides with solid training in advanced techniques in scientific disciplines for the modelling of engineering problems.
