Description

Advertisement

The fresh water resources of our planet must be managed more efficiently each day and in a sustainable way.

This programme aims at training specialists in both the public and private sectors capable of adressing today's and future issues and needs in hydraulic and civil engineering, hydraulic works and infrastructures, hydrology, and water resources management.

This Master programme is dedicated to developing scientific and technological knowledge. It is characterized by a high degree of scientific specialization in a particular area of study. Our Master is designed to prepare students for engineering activities such as design, running and maintenance of dams, hydraulic engineering works, hydroelectric facilities, flood management, water supply, drainage and sewer in urban areas.

The programme draws on theoretical, experimental technological and numerical methods. The training is supported by a staff from associated research laboratories (3SR, LEGI and LTHE) and practitioners from industrial partners

Prospective

The career prospects for the graduates are very good as the whole program is designed to provide industry oriented training in a scientific environment. Graduates may join the industry or may like to pursue PhD programmes in one of the associated research laboratories or join other universities all over the world.

Contents

The Master of Hydraulic Engineering is dedicated to developing scientific and technological knowledge. It is characterized by a high degree of scientific specialization in a particular area of study. The principal vocation of our Master is designed to prepare students for engineering activities (design, running and maintenance) of structures and grids used for the collection, the treatment, the storage and the distribution of water.

The programme emphasizes the following focus areas: Experimental and numerical methods, constitutive modelling, physical modelling, numerical modelling and structural engineering, water treatment and ressource. The training is supported by researchers from associated research laboratories and practitioners from industrial partners

Master Thesis

The final semester is exclusively dedicated to the End of Studies Project.
This occurs from February to June, either overseas or in France, in a research laboratory or in industry.

This allows students to use the methods and knowledge they have acquired in a professional environment. They will experience engineering working methods and learn how to manage a project, test solutions and develop their autonomy and initiative.

Requirements

* You can apply at the 1st year of the master if you have a Bachelor degree in either Science (BSc) or Engineering (BEng) including courses in hydraulic, mechanical and civil Engineering
* You can apply directly at the 2nd year of the master if you have a Master degree or a 4 years of higher education level
