Arts et Métiers offers Bachelor degree-holding students the option of doing a two-year master's programme with the aim of consolidating and deepening their science and engineering sciences in a pragmatic approach through real scientific immersion in the Arts et Métiers laboratories
The master's degree in BioMedical Engineering stands at the crossroads of two innovation-rich fields: engineering sciences and biomedicine. This programme is a partnership between the University of Paris Descartes and ParisTech – on which Arts et Métiers depends – with additional expertise: life sciences and biomedicine from the Paris university and engineering and technology from ParisTech.
Transdisciplinarity and the international dimension are the two pillars of the BioMedical Engineering master's programme, which caters for students from diverse backgrounds: not only biology, chemistry and health sciences, but also engineering sciences, computer science, mathematics and physics. The main goal is to provide skills in the main biomedical engineering fields, which are increasing in significance in terms of both research and industrial development.
Five specialities are currently on offer to candidates:
Arts et Métiers offers the "Factory of the Future" master to Bachelor of Science or Engineering graduates, in two years : the first year is dedicated to fundamental sciences and industrial applications ; the second year is devoted to the specialisation.
Students have the opportunity to get acquainted with the different steps of scientific research project , thanks to scientific immersion within Arts et Métiers’s research units. They develop skills in project management while they are given in-depth education in Engineering Sciences .
When applying, students choose a specialisation among nearly 20 possibilities classified in 4 main orientations (calculation, communication and project management):
- Biomedical Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
The 1st year (60 ECTS) is taught on Paris campus. Fully taught in English, it involves 2 blocs namely calculation (Mathematics, Data processing, Numerical methods ), communication & organisation (Bibliography technics, Project management, Scientific communication in English, Career Development and Foreign language (French or English) ).
Students also attend required courses depending on the orientation of the specialisation. An intership in Industry (13 weeks minimum) is also complusory, to help develop professional skills.
A semester dedicated to master thesis
During the 2nd year (60 ECTS), specific theoretical courses are taught during the first semester. Students prepare then their master thesis during the second semester. Classes and master thesis depend on the chosen specialization amongst the 20 possibilities in 4 areas : Osteoarticular and Tissue Biomechanics ; Design, Industrialization, Risk, Decision ; Fluids and Energy System ; Mechanics, Materials, Processes
- Both foreign and French students are eligible to apply to the formation
- Bachelor of Science or Engineering graduates only
- Level of English: the minimum requirement is TOEFL iBT 81/120 (or equivalent) or IELTS 6.0
- The selection is based on academic excellence, motivation of the candidate and professional project consistency.

The MTI 3D master's programme aims to train experts in 3D interactive technologies. With a combination of laboratory research and application in the field, they are trained to create new products and services based on virtual technology – virtual reality, augmented reality, 3D and connected objects.
Two M2 (second year master's programme) courses are possible: human-machine interactions (at the Chalon-sur-Saône Arts et Métiers institute), innovation perception and management, engineering and advanced virtual reality (in Laval).
This offers many career opportunities: R&D Manager, teacher-researcher, virtual reality or augmented reality engineer, IT project manager, consultant or start-up entrepreneur.
M1 (first year master's degree course) is accessible with a degree, while M2 can be followed after an M1, another M2 course, a degree in engineering or a final year at engineering school. After their applications have been assessed, selected candidates attend a recruitment interview and take a test in English.
