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 :
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...
