Program description

Master's Degree in Physics and Simulation in Civil Engineering

The aim of this master is to train scientific experts in Mechanics and Physics high potential fields such as civil engineering structures, coastal engineering, geomechanics or physics of porous media. The master develops around two shared courses: Structures of civil and coastal engineering and Mechanics and Physics in Porous Media. Those two academic courses cover a wide spectrum of interests ranging in scale from a pore to a structure.

This international master’s degree in Physics and Simulation in Civil Engineering offers multidisciplinary key courses to achieve an advanced specialist level in the aforementioned fields. It is suited for students planning both an academic or an industrial career and provides the theoretical basis and the practical expertise required to pursue in research or R&D structures or companies.

Admission requirements

English Minumum Required Score: CECRL B2 level

Academic: Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Science or Equivalent

Program content
