The first year is dedicated to general scientific lectures and is common to all students of the Master of Applied Mechanics (SMA). In second year, they can choose among several independant programs, including the Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering program.
The language of instruction and examination in 100% English during the first year including 160 hours of French language courses.
During the 2d year, courses and Master thesis are either in French or in English language.
The aim of the Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering M2 program is to give students an advanced training on typical problems of hydrodynamics applied to naval architecture and ocean engineering: ship resistance, seakeeping, ship behaviour in irregular seas, water waves and marine environment... physical, modelling and numerical aspects are studied.
Training involves theoritical courses on typical problems of hydrodynamics: ship resistance, wave induced motions, wave and marine environment modeling ... and numerical methods used to solve these problems.
A large part of the training is also dedicated to practical use of softwares to solve problems defined above through a large variety of numerical methods: boundary elements or spectral methods under potential flow theory, finite-difference or finite-volume techniques in solvers for viscous flows, Smooth Particles Hydrodynamics (SPH) ...
Students are also involved in practical work in experimental facilities of the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory of Centrale Nantes (towing tank, wave tank equipped with an multiflap wave generator ...).
The Master thesis can be undertaken at Centrale Nantes within the Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering research team or in other laboratories in France or abroad (IST Lisbon, NTNU at Trondheim, INSEAN Roma, University of Auckland ...) or in industry. Both numerical or experimental studies can be tackled during this period.
Graduate students can prepare a PhD thesis within the Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering Team which works on various problems by experimental and numerical approaches: wave-structure interactions, 3D numerical simulations of extreme waves in open seas, simulation of real sea states in wave tanks, bow impact forces in steep waves, flooding and survivability of damaged ships, marine renewable energies (wave energy converters, offshore wind turbines, marine current turbines) .... subjects of thesis are often defined in collaboration with indutrial partners.
Students can carry out (notably research and development work) in various fields of industry: shipbuilding, sailing and leisure boats, offshore industry, coastal engineering, marine renewable energies ...
The duration of the Masters of Science in Applied Mechanics courses is two academic years (120 ECTS credits). Each year is split into two semesters with 30 ECTS credits for each.
The 1st-year study programme is the same for all the Masters of Science in Applied Mechanics even though the elective track is different. The language of instruction and examination is English.

Students must hold a first university degree after at least three years of studies (Bachelor of Science or 180 credits in the European system or equivalent).
Applicants must be fluent in English, both in writing and speaking. An applicant whose native language is not English is required to pass a recognized international English test such as the TOEFL or other equivalent.
A possibility for directly integrating the second year is opened and discussed by the Admission committee
