Integrating the fields of mechanics and electricity is one of the major challenges of the civil engineering student in electro-mechanics.
The Master’s degree in Electro-mechanical engineering from UCL favours multidisciplinary training and the ability to solve interface problems raised by the integration of several fields. It integrates the fields of electricity and mechanics into a coherent whole and prioritises basic knowledge with the aim of deepening or reorienting students’ knowledge mid-career.
Students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to become:
- Specialists in mechatronics (electronics, mechanical production, automation and robotics) or specialists in energy (smart grids/energy networks, thermodynamics and energy).
- Individuals with field experience capable of putting into practice their knowledge of research and technology.
- Managers who can manage team projects
The Master’s degree programme in electro-mechanical engineering prepares its students to be aware of technical progress and adapt to the needs of the job market and changes in business.
Polytechnic and multidisciplinary, the training provided by the Louvain School of Engineering privileges the acquisition of knowledge that combines theory and practice and that is open to analysis, design, manufacturing, production, research and development and innovation all the while paying attention to ethics and sustainable development.
On successful completion of this programme, each student is able to :
- 1. Identify and use concepts, laws and appropriate reasoning from a variety of fields in mechanics and electricity to solve a given problem:
- Electricity (in the broad sense)
- Electrical energy (transport, quality, management)
- Electro-technics (conversion, controls, activation)
- Electronics (digital electronics, instrumentation, sensors)
- Computer sciences (real time)
- Mechanics (modeling, design)
- Thermodynamics and thermics
- Fluid dynamics and transfers
- Robotics and automation.
- Energetic systems (production, distribution, heat and energetic efficiency)
- 2. Identify and use modelling and calculation tools to solve problems associated with the aforementioned fields.
- 3. Verify problem solving results especially with regard to orders of magnitude and/or units (in which the results are expressed).
