  • Specialty – Complex Mechanical Structures and Systems (SMC)

    At the cross-roads of mecha­ni­cal tes­ting and com­pu­ta­tio­nal mecha­nics, this Master’s degree course ‑SMC (Com­plex Mecha­ni­cal Struc­tures and Sys­tems) aims at trai­ning spe­cia­lists capable of unders­tan­ding mate­rial mecha­ni­cal beha­vior and acqui­ring skills in com­pu­ta­tio­nal mecha­nics for the pur­pose of desi­gning, asses­sing and cer­ti­fying new mate­rials, and mecha­ni­cal sys­tems and struc­tures and to opti­mize their per­for­mance levels. In this course, empha­sis is put on the skill to inte­grate expe­ri­men­tal and com­pu­ta­tio­nal mechanics.


    The tea­ching course teams deve­lop tools, models , expe­ri­men­tal, theo­re­ti­cal and com­pu­ta­tio­nal metho­do­lo­gies, that cover all the steps of the mecha­ni­cal simu­la­tion and of a digi­tal model chain and making rele­vant use of data (field mea­su­re­ments, image cor­re­la­tion). The course also pro­vides stu­dents with advan­ced skills that enable them to iden­ti­fy, enrich and cer­ti­fy mate­rial beha­viour and com­pu­ta­tio­nal models, at various scales while taking into accoun­tun cer­tai­ni­ty and variability.

    Training provides acquisition of the following skills

    • Using mecha­ni­cal tes­ting for a more pre­dic­tive simulation
    • Expe­ri­men­tal and com­pu­ta­tio­nal tech­niques and tools for mecha­ni­cal model­ling, iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and cha­rac­te­ri­za­tion (field mea­su­re­ment) of mate­rials and mul­ti-mate­rials (metal­lic, com­po­site, poly­mer materials)
    • Uncer­tain­ty and varia­bi­li­ty in mechanics
    • Advan­ced tech­niques and tools nee­ded for digi­tal modelling
    • Opti­mi­za­tion and model reduc­tion in mechanics
    • Sol­ving cou­pled, mul­ti-phy­sics problems

    Professional openings

    The trai­ning pro­vi­ded here allows SMC gra­duates to obtain imme­diate accep­tance as R&D engi­neers, in various indus­trial mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring sec­tors nota­bly in the trans­por­ta­tion sec­tor, in ener­gy and the envi­ron­ment and also in aca­de­mic (or indus­trial) research posi­tions by pur­suing stu­dies to PhD level.
