Innovation through Physics and Engineering

Smart systems & structures

Master program in Smart Systems and Structures

The program merges mechanics, electronics and control for the smart systems and structures of the future. It is organized in 3 specializations, spanning multiple facets of multiphysical systems.

The program aims to train students in fundamental, both theoretical and experimental, physics and in mathematics for physics providing knowledge and lab expertise in photonics, non-linear physics, time & frequency metrology, micro/nano- and quantum technologies, as well as to prepare students to apply fundamental science and engineering approaches to higher-level research and industrial tasks.

The educational program is structured into three programs:

Master on Control for Green Mechatronics (GREEM)

The program focuses on design and control of mechatronics and micro-mechatronics systems with a particular focus on two points: their functional performances and their energetic efficiency. Students are trained to master the area of green mechatronics to be able to design new or re-design existing mechatronic systems, to model and simulate them, to calculate controllers for their automation and their performances improvement, and to setup networks of mechatronic systems, all together with consideration of the energy efficiency. Exchanges with international universities (Canada, Mexico, Peru, Qatar…) are possible during the curriculum. Dual-degree of Master is possible with some of the partner universities. The master is supported by the internationally renowned research center FEMTO-ST (http://femto-st.fr/).

 

Entry requirements
