Master’s programme 2 years (Graduate)

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.

AM²S : Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science (M1+M2)

The Master’s specialization “Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science” (AM²S) is positioned at the crossroads of France, Europe, the Mediterranean Basin and the U.S. industrial ecosystem, by offering the AM²S courses in English for the Master of Science degree (MSc) and PGE 3rd ENSAM / Master of Engineering (MEng).

The objectives are also to increase students’ knowledge in the field of manufacturing processes and the materials science through multi-physics and multi-scale approaches, including smart and digital concepts. In other words, this program will focus on innovative scientific fields, from the physics and chemistry of materials to the use of manufactured parts, by developing the duality between experimentation and numerical simulation.

Arts et Métiers offers the "Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science " master to Bachelor of Science or Engineering graduates, in two years.

Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science (AM²S)s.

MASTER 1

The Master 1 Specialty “Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Science” for Transport and Energy (AM2S-M1) is directly positioned before a Master 2 course (e.g. AM2S-M2.). The objectives are to prepare engineers for industrial and laboratory research and also to increase their knowledges of the physics of manufacturing processes and the fundamentals of the materials behaviors with an objective to design processes to aim for targeted physical properties. The courses are taught on Aix en Provence campus in association with MSMP lab and the Learning Factories.

The courses are composed of :

  • One semester of core courses for 310 h and 30 ECTS based on  mandatory teaching units (TUs) during the first semester. These units will allow to the students to get insights in mechanics and material science for manufacturing processes and to understand the relationship between material and processes. A TU will introduce the key skills to write proposals and scientific publications.
  • A second semester of courses with the research project in Manufacturing and Material Science (300 h and 30 ECTS). Advanced materials and manufacturing processes will be addressed in order to optimize the processes to a targeted surface integrity (topography, residual fields, microstructure)..
  • Individual research internship of 6 to 8 weeks. The internship will be led in a research structure (laboratory of university, research service in the industry). Dates: May-June– 6 ECTS.

MASTER 2

The scientific objectives of the AM²S-M2 program emphasizes a high-level scientific approach by:

  • Improving the knowledges of the relationships between the Material Science and the Manufacturing Processes,
  • Using multiphysic and multiscale approaches to better understand the relationships between materials/mechanics/processes,
  • Mastering the numerical tools for optimizing the design of structures and parts high added value,
  • Using new technologies, in particular smart digitalization, big data, and numerical simulations.

These objectives will allow students to move on to a PhD program with knowledge and skills in the materials sciences and/or smart manufacturing.

The courses are composed of:

  • Core courses (150 hrs., 15 ECTS) with 5 mandatory teaching units (TUs) during the first semester.
  • Two Elective paths  (150 hrs., 15 ECTS) with 3 mandatory TUs and 2 elective TUs during the first semester:
    • Materials Science elective
    • Advanced Manufacturing elective
  • Individual research project (30 ECTS) for 6 months during the second semester. The internship will be done in a research structure (university laboratory, research department in a company in the field).

BioMedical Engineering (M2)

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:

Factory of the Future

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
  • Energy
  • 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

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Energy
  • Mechanical Engineering
