Latest news Selected research internship subjects Deadlines

The Master's program in Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) is a high level two-year (M1 and M2) training in fluid dynamics of natural media, complemented with numerical and experimental methods.

Natural fluid media involve lakes, rivers, the ocean from the coast to the abyss or the atmospheric boundary layer. An important part of the program deals with environmental applications, through lectures or research internship subjects. Examples are sediment transport, pollution and air quality, waste water treatment or the impact of wind and marine turbines on the ambient medium.
The program is based on the broad expertise available in Grenoble with internationally recognized researchers in the fields of fundamental fluid mechanics closely linked to observations and modelling of natural media.

The program is organised as follows :

First year (M1, 60 ECTS)

Second year (M2, 60 ECTS)

  • Lectures, tutorials and labs over the two semesters;
  • Research internship (21 ECTS) in a Grenoble laboratory, which extends over the two semesters.
  • First semester (30 ECTS): lectures and tutorials
  • Second semester (30 ECTS) : a five month research internship in a French laboratory (for foreign students) or in a laboratory abroad (for French students)
  • Direct admission to the 2d year is possible.
