WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Participate in a multidisciplinary program taught by renowned experts in their fields

Asset n°2

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

Asset n°3

Built a stimulating career in the emerging field of solid mechanics

In a scientific, technological, and industrial environment that increasingly requires innovative solutions, it is vital to describe the mechanical response of materials and structures in ever greater detail. This requires models that capture multiple interconnected length scales. The fast-developing research field of multiscale modeling of materials and structures is inherently multidisciplinary: physicists contribute their knowledge of how condensed matter behaves on small scales, solid mechanicians their expertise of larger scales, and applied mathematicians techniques for bridging scales.

The Solid Mechanics track is dedicated to multiphysics and multiscale modeling of materials and structures (M4S) and is a Master-level program at the interface between these three fields. It provides advanced training in the fundamentals of the mechanics of materials and structures, highlighting the multiscale and multiphysics dimensions of state-of-the-art research in solid mechanics and emphasizing a mathematical approach.

Objectives

This program enables students to:

  • Become experts in the development and implementation of models that efficiently predict a wide range of physical phenomena observed in structures and materials
  • Grasp the multidisciplinary scientific culture enabling them to interact with physicists, mechanicians, applied mathematicians, and engineers
  • Be prepared for the fundamental research in solid mechanics that is likely to develop in coming decades, and discover present and potential applications in state-of-the-art technologies
  • Acquire the skills to work and communicate with ease in English-speaking environments

This M4S track aims to train students for research in mechanics, and to a lesser degree for a career in industry. At the end of the Master’s program, students will be equipped to pursue a PhD or launch a career in research and development in industry or a public research institution.

Course details will be available when admission opens.
