WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Deepen your knowledge with lectures and supervision from expert professors and researchers

Asset n°2

Develop excellent technical and scientific skills in fluid mechanics through a broad range of courses

Asset n°3

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

This Fluid Mechanics Year 2 Master’s program offers an overall teaching experience covering the main active research domains in fluid mechanics. The first semester is dedicated to lectures in fundamental and theoretical fluid mechanics as well as numerical and experimental aspects, plus, possibly, a short research project. The second part of the year consists in an internship either in academic or industrial laboratories.

Objectives

This program enables students to:

  • Gain expertise in fundamental and theoretical fluid mechanics covering numerical and experimental aspects during the first part of the year
  • Conduct research during an internship in an academic or industrial laboratory during the second semester

This program opens up a wide range of career opportunities. Most students pursue a PhD in an academic or industrial laboratory, while others directly join the research and development team of a private company.

Semester 1

3 ECTS per lectures, 10 lectures to choose among the following list with the possibility to exchange few lectures with other lectures from the master. Written or project exams.

  • Active matter & mobility
  • Advanced experimental methods: fluid
  • Computational mechanics: fluids
  • Frontiers in fluid mechanics
  • Geophysical flows & waves
  • Instabilities
  • Interfaces/microfluidics
  • Magnetohydrodynamics
  • Theoretical fluid mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Introductory research project

Semester 2

Internship

Admission requirements

Academic prerequisites

Completion of the first year of Master in biomechanic tracks (mechanics, physics or applied mathematics) at Institut Polytechnique de Paris or equivalent in France or abroad

Language prerequisites
