Master’s programme 2 years (Graduate)

Arts et Métiers offers Bachelor degree-holding students the option of doing a two-year research master's 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

Mechanical, Energy and Industrial Engineering (1st & 2nd year)

Arts et Métiers offers the Mechanical, Energy and Industrial Engineering 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 .

Calculation, communication and project management

When applying, students choose a specialisation among nearly 20 possibilities classified in 4 main orientations:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Design, Industrialisation, Risk and Decision-Making
  • Fluids and Energy Systems
  • Mechanics, Materials and Processes

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

MTI3D research master's

The MTI 3D research master's 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) 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.
