2/ What is the expertise of each Master to highlight?

        Computational Mechanics (Erasmus Mundus Label of excellence)

One of your professors will be our Centrale Nantes world class researcher Nicolas MOES, co-inventor of the revolutionary X-FEM method to modelise crack growth. This X-FEM method is an improvement of the classic Finite Element Method and is used to solution space for solutions to differential equations. Very useful for example to perform high level calculation in order to create very reliable structures for aeronautics or civil engineering materials!

        Energetics and Propulsion  

For sustainable development, it is crucial to improve motors and reduce pollution. At Centrale Nantes for example our professors work closely with industry to develop more efficient hybrid motors. Be part of this future!

        Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering (Erasmus Mundus Label of excellence)

Did you know that the first project of Floating off shore wind turbine is implemented by Centrale Nantes in France within the Floatgen project with the EU and companies? Have a look and apply to this master to get state of the art education in hydrodynamics and ocean engineering, a major field of study for our future.


        Materials Processes and Technology of Composites 

In this master, you'll learn advanced state of the art knowledge about materials and modelisation in order to answer the need of companies for innovative solutions, like designing more reactive polymers and effective fiber composites for the automotive industry. Look at this video from 2 of our World class Centrale Nantes professors Christophe BINETRUY and Francesco CHINESTA that teach in this master and have huge research projects with companies!


        Design of Systems and Products 

 Be innovative! At Centrale Nantes for example our team working in this field is currently designing the first 3D Printers for human tissues in cooperation with the medical researchers and industries!

        Civil Engineering

At Centrale Nantes we have world class specialists of concrete that is still the more used material in the world. It is of the uttermost importance to improve its production and efficiency, and find innovative solutions to use the by-products!

        Advanced Robotics (Erasmus Mundus Label of excellence):

Robots are everywhere and this field of study will be developed more and more in the future, in industry, cities, medical field, culture, ...Innovative projects around robotics gathering art, health and science are conducting at Centrale Nantes, kike the "Rob'Autism" project, and experimental interaction between a robot and children with autism spectrum disorder that get amazing results.


        Automatic Control, Signal and Image

Do you know the MRI of the future? This project on “Magnetic Resonance Imaging » brings together researchers from Centrale Nantes and researchers from other institutes and industries to develop methods to extract quantitative information of clinical interest.

The researchers at Centrale Nantes are working on image and signal processing and applying their expertise in fluid mechanics to improve image resolution and accuracy.

Be part of this expertise team for the future!

        Real Time, Steering and supervision:

One of your professor will be our Centrale Nantes world class researcher Malek GHANES received the prize for applied research from the Federation of Electrical, Electronics and Communications Industries (FIECC) for his pioneering work on the development of robust and inexpensive automation. He was also awarded the prize for best article in Control Engineering Practice, a journal of IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) for his work on the management of fuel cell energy for electric vehicle applications. Now Malek GHANES leads the Centrale Nantes and Renault industrial Chair on electric propulsion performance with a budget of 4.6 million euros!!!

        Atmosphere, Water and Urban environment:

Environment is our cities are part of the major current global problems that our world is facing today. In collaboration with many national and international partners, this master program is managed by the world class group Dynamics of Urban and Coastal Atmosphere (DAUC) focuses on understanding the urban atmosphere, its micro-meteorology and micro-climate, relying on numerical modeling, wind tunnel experiments and field experiment campaigns. Join Centrale Nantes, Join DAUC!
