WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Benefit from a research-focused program with close links to the Institut Polytechnique de Paris laboratories

Asset n°2

Build a stimulating career in research and industrial R&D in a variety of fields

Asset n°3

Follow a PhD track in Biomedical engineering to combine mechanics with physics and biology & health issues

The Biomechanics Year 2 Master program provides mechanics, physics, and applied mathematics students with state-of-the-art training in the exciting field of biomechanics - the application of mechanics to biological and biomedical systems at scales ranging from single molecules to whole organs or tissues.

The program consists of two academic quarters with a total of ten courses to complete including biomechanics, biofluid mechanics, cell mechanics, modeling of active and passive biomechanical systems and biomimetics. The coursework is followed by a 5-6-month research internship – most are conducted in academic laboratories, but it is also possible to gain experience in industry. The program prepares students for doctoral studies or industrial research and development positions.

Objectives

This Master’s program enables students to:

  • Benefit from a high level of specialization in the rapidly growing field of biomechanics
  • Start conducting research in a stimulating learning environment
  • The Biomechanics track prepares graduates for doctoral studies or industrial research and development positions
  • Industrial opportunities abound in the medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries
  • In recent years, employment opportunities in the startup and innovation sector have increased, especially in the burgeoning connected and personalized health field

Course details will be available when admission opens.
