Overview

  • Master

  • Degree awarded : Master
    Duration :
    1 year starting in October

Summary

In partnership with Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble

This Master program entirely in English results from collaborations with various European universities. The fields of study are geomaterial mechanics, solid and structural mechanics, geotechnics, soil-structure behaviour and environmental risks.

It is backed by a solid network of partners and sponsors in a field in which the Grenoble universities and laboratories are at the forefront of training and research on a European level.

This program is designed as a research master program and students are encouraged to apply for a PhD at the Grenoble doctoral school I-MEP2.

Objectives

PhD Opportunities:

Graduate students who have finished a Research Master with distinction such as this one, may apply to the doctoral school I-MEP2  Ingénierie Matériaux Mécanique Energétique Environnement Procédés Production in view of pusuing their PhD. 

Admission is never automatic and depends systematically on whether an agreement can be found with a laboratory. All applications are reviewed individually and a minimum grade point average is required for all students.

PhD Grants:
A number of grants are

available to students wishing to apply for a PhD. These include the three-year research grants allocated by the French Ministry of Research and Higher Education. To be eligible, a student must be a citizen of the EU or have finished a Master or the equivalent thereof in one of the Bologna Process Signatory States (27 EU members plus 18 other countries including Norway, Iceland, Switzerland among others).

Certain limitations (age, ...) may apply.

Other grants are also available (regional, CNRS, CEA, ADEME, or private industrial grants). Further information can be obtained from the research labs.

In addition foreign students may apply for grants from their own countries, or embassies.

Students are advised, that a grant must be obtained to pursue a PhD.

  • Training partners

    Each student will be required to complete a research project. This may be undertaken in France or at one of the partner universities depending on where the student originates from. This is an opportunity to consolidate and discover working methods and to learn how to manage real projects. A written dissertation will be required at the end of this period to be defended in front of a jury.

    Possible research laboratories (Grenoble):

    3S-R, Cemagref, LTHE

    Université Joseph Fourier (UJF)

Prospects

Expected learning outcomes

Geomechanics is integral to understanding a number of natural and engineering phenomena, and associated risks. This masters program involves courses by researchers from a top ranking department at the University of Grenoble, followed by a 1 semester individual research project. The objective is to provide an understanding of both the physics and the associated mathematics, which form the basis of an advanced engineering approach. The program will equip students who wish to proceed to higher level academic research and those interested in work with governmental and non-governmental organisations in applied geomechanics.
