Training content

Courses from the engineering programme are open to international students – selected by our partner institutions abroad – as part of a double degree or via an exchange year or semester. Those selected to follow the double degree spend two years here within the engineering programme: one year of the common-core curriculum and one year of specialisation. Exchange year or semester students usually join the final year of the engineering programme choosing both a specialisation and a professional option to obtain ECTS credits.

The first year is devoted to broad-based multi-disciplinary engineering training in the form of a common-core curriculum. In each of years 2 and 3 students focus on a technical discipline with their choice of specialisation from the 22 on offer. In year 3 students also follow a professional option, to hone in on a particular sector of activity or company function.

Specific contribution to MRE

5 specialisation in the marine renewable energy fields :


The aim is to provide the students with the scientific and technical knowledge in hydrodynamics and ocean engineering to allow them to address societal issues linked mainly to energy (offshore oil, marine renewable energies) and maritime transport (building of environmentally-friendly ships and transport of offshore wind power).


Improvements in energy efficiency, the development of renewable energies and energy storage are amongst the main challenges facing engineers today. It is within this context that this specialisation aims to provide general engineering students with the skills to deal with cross- and multi-disciplinary issues linked to energy.


The development of control systems today is taking place through an integrated approach that can be characterised in the following terms: from system specification to embedded software. This has replaced the fragmented approach of control law design on one side and its implementation (e.g. in embedded systems) on the other. Both sides now agree on the need to understand the other side’s constraints and techniques.


Engineering training is constantly evolving to keep pace with the ever increasing power of computers. The aim of this specialisation is for students to discover the current extent of the contribution made by digital technology to engineering science and master its tools and challenges. They will acquire different skills in numerical methods, from computer-based simulation to high performance computing, within a multidisciplinary context.
