Major in design, manufacturing and mechanics of materials

Open to civil, mechanical and electromechanical engineering students, this major reviews design, manufacturing and the importance of materials in the development of a mechanical system. It also addresses physical and chemical properties and the behaviour of metals, polymers and composites. Next, the main techniques for shaping these materials (moulding by injection or compression, stretching, laminating, forging, extrusion, embossing) are studied from the thermo-mechanical and technological point of view. Finally, numerical modelling of these procedures is tackled with particular attention paid to welding techniques. All phases of the mechanical manufacturing process are studied from the design stage to the setting up of suitable manufacturing techniques to the production schedule and organisation of working groups. This major is rounded out by those in aeronautics and energy as well as dynamics, robotics and biomechanics for students interested in issues pertaining to design, manufacturing and the importance of materials be they in aeronautics, energy, transportation or bio-engineering.
