General framework of the training offer
Member of the Ecoles Centrales Group, Centrale Nantes is an engineering school that deploys academic and applied research of the highest European standards. Marine technology, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, automatic control and robotics, city and urban environment, industrial engineering – Centrale Nantes proposes 6 masters (17 specialisms) and 3 Erasmus Mundus masters, a guarantee of academic excellence.
The Naval School trains career officers of the Navy. Naval officers are assigned to command and control in operational units (combat ships, submarines, naval aviation fleets, naval commandos). Since its foundation in 1830, the Naval School has provided initial training for all officers of the Navy. Every year, for nearly 80 years, she delivers an engineering degree.
This programme allows its students to develop skills in naval engineering and to become engineers experienced in ship operations. Two of the top French Technical Universities have teamed up to offer you a unique programme. The outstanding strength of this master is that you will have on-board training sessions on French Navy vessels. You will gain an insight into on-board practice to serve complex equipment and to fit in with the quick evolution of knowledge and techniques which is highly valuable for a naval engineer and of course highly regarded by industrial employers.
