Specialty – Modelling, Design, Process Optimization (MCOP)
Based essentially on in-depth knowledge of industrial processes, the MCOP specialist course trains engineers capable of taking charge of a production team. In addition, the ability to manage projects and optimize process control conditions enables MCOP graduates to confirm their position within their industrial companies and to move up the ladder to hold positions of responsibility and management.
In the MCOP programme, students will cover the following curriculum:
- Basic process engineering courses,
- Chemistry of Nuclear Solids,
- Chemistry of Catalytic Solids,
- Numerical modelling of engineering problems,
- Process modelling and simulation,
- Clean process design,
- Fuzzy logic: concepts and applications,
- Separation processes,
- System safety and human reliability.
Placements/internships and industrial relations
Students do a first 6‑month internship, during semester 3, as an assistant executive engineer. The choice of field of specialist studies is made following this internship.
The training in the field ends with a 6‑month end-of-study project in a company. 40% of job offers come from these projects.
In addition to internship opportunities abroad, about 50% of the students spend a semester abroad taking part in university and HE exchanges (Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, etc.).
The MCOP programme trains engineers in process engineering. Engineers in the MCOP specialist programme find employment in various large industrial groups.
Examples of jobs: engineers in charge of production, R&D, quality managers, industrial study engineer (design and conception of innovative processes), project and industrialisation managers, etc.
