MAJORS

MECHANICS MAJOR (PARIS CAMPUS)

The Mechanics Major puts into perspective the different stages of a process of design of a complex mechanical system via a systems engineering approach.

DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF COMPLEX MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

The mechanics major studies the different stages of the processes for designing complex mechanical systems through a systems engineering approach. In addition to modern computer-aided design tools, it provides a foundation in material sciences and structure and fluid modelling, which are essential to the different industrial sectors related to metalworking and construction. This major focuses on structure design methods.

The industrial sectors targeted at the end of this sector are mainly those of civil engineering, construction, shipbuilding and offshore, automobile and aeronautics.

Objectives: To train generalist engineers capable of implementing a system engineering approach.

Strenghts:

  • A systems engineering approach for aeronautics and space;
  • A very large network of active alumni;
  • Partnerships with major manufacturers in these sectors;
  • Recognition of this training;
  • Important opportunities in the research community.

Example of projects 2014 and 2015:

  • Design and dimensioning of a landing gear;
  • Design of a "green" urban vehicle;
  • Harmfulness of a defect in a pipeline;
  • Study of an inbound landing gear for ULM.

SPECIALISATIONS OF THE MECHANICS MAJOR
