The multipurpose engineer : the training offered in electro-mechanics civil engineering has a transversal and versatile character. It is based on multidisciplinarity and is designed to meet the needs of manufacturers.

NEW : a training in Sustainable Automotive Engineering

Today, more than ever, automotive engineering is one of the most technologically interesting domains to face the sustainability challenges of automotive engineering of the 21st century. Experts in automotive engineering are poised to develop innovations that will change society and address a wide variety of global problem, develop innovative solutions to shape new vehicles and transportation systemswith smaller environmental impact. This is a new professionnal focus available during this Master (60 credits).

The development of energetics was strongly galvanised by the petrol crises of the 1970s. The latter revealed to Europeans the extent to which their standard of living was dependent on the price and availability of energy. Today the major challenge is to limit greenhouse gas emissions and more particularly those of CO2, produced during the burning of fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal and petrol. An energeticist is the engineer who puts into practice the clean and efficient combustion of hydrocarbons.

During his or her education programme, he or she will also study the various types of renewable energies and nuclear power stations.One of the major challenges of the contemporary world is the emergence of new countries who are high consumers as they are developing rapidly (China, India, Brazil, etc.). We thus have to demonstrate imagination in order to manage limited resources as well as possible, whilst overcoming the more and more considerable problems posed by local, regional and global pollution and the planet´s ecological balance.To confront these challenges and the technical, economic and environmental problems which follow from them a new type of engineer is necessary.

Their training must be very multipurpose and rest on the major axes of electro-mechanics. With strong bases in the fields of energy resources and renewable energies, heat engines, and electrical and hydraulic machines, the energeticist fulfils these criteria. He or she also receives reinforced education in electrical, thermal and fluidics measurement, electrical energy networks, transfer processes and the analysis of thermal, chemical and electrical systems. The energeticist is also trained in the optimal simulation, exploitation and management of the major energetics systems, such as electricity power stations (hydraulic, nuclear and fossil fuel), electricity transport and distribution systems, or heating, refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

Over the course of your education you carry out projects in different forms: group work, integrated projects, external training programmes, etc. The level of standard demanded rises progressively and leads you to be autonomous. Beyond the work demanded within the curriculum a great many other possibilities offer themselves in order for you to put into practice your acquired technical and scientific knowledge :

Some examples...

The Eurobot competition, N Hitec, the Oufti-1 satellite, the Shell Eco-Marathon

The department of electro-mechanics demands a training programme in a regional or European business company. You are thus taken under the wing by academic and industrial `sponsors' and experience total immersion in a defined industrial environment. The tasks awaiting you are very variable but always of the order of those which would be confined to an engineering graduate at the very beginning of a career.

Our students also benefit from a state of the art infrastructure which is unique in the French Speaking Community of Belgium: a wind tunnel, a space centre, a fire resistance testing laboratory, a hydraulic construction laboratory...


The requirements to access to the master programmes are regulated by articles 51 to 53 of the decree of 31 March 2004 defining higher education, promoting its integration into the European Higher Education Area, and refinancing universities.

The master programmes are open to students who hold one of the following:

* a bachelor in the same curriculum;
* the same master with a different focus;
* a university degree, subject to the academic authorities' decision and to additional requirements defined by them;
* a long course academic degree granting access to the master, subject to a decision by the government and to additional requirements defined by it;
* an academic degree similar to those mentioned above, delivered under the same conditions by the Flemish Community, the German-speaking Community or the Royal Military Academy;
* a foreign academic degree recognised as equivalent to those mentioned above in application of the aforementioned decree, of a European directive or of an international convention, under the same conditions.

The additional requirements are designed to ensure students have sufficient knowledge of the subjects required for the intended studies.When these additional requirements consist in one or several additional courses, they cannot add more than 15 credits in total to the student's course load, considering all other credits counting towards their admission.These courses are included into the curriculum of their master programme.

Master programmes are also open to students who, in order to earn the bachelor in the same curriculum, must still pass no more than 12 credits and are registered for those courses.

Master programmes, possibly subject to additional courses worth no more than 60 credits (when this added course load is over 15 credits, it must be taken as a preparatory year), are open to students who hold one of the following:

* another bachelor-level degree delivered by the French Community (professional bachelor or transition bachelor from a non-university institute of higher education), granting access to the master following a decision by the government and subject to the additional requirements defined by it;
* a similar academic degree, delivered by the Flemish Community, the German-speaking Community or at the Royal Military Academy, or a foreign academic degree recognised as equivalent;
* a bachelor-level degree delivered by a Belgian university or a foreign institute of higher education can the admissions jury can value at 180 credits or more.

knowledge and skills, acquired through personal or professional experience, that can be recognised by the admissions jury. This relevant experience must be equivalent to at least five years of professional activity, not taking into account failed years of higher education. At the conclusion of an evaluation process organised by the academic authorities, the admissions jury judges whether the student's skills and knowledge allow them to successfully pursue the programme.
