Selected research internship subjects Deadlines Kick-off meeting

The Master's program in Environmental Fluid Mechanics (EFM) is a high level second-year (M2) training in fluid dynamics of natural environments, such as lakes, rivers, the coastal ocean or the atmospheric boundary layer.

An important part of the program deals with environmental applications, such as sediment transport, atmospheric pollution, exchanges between the ocean and the atmosphere or the interaction of wind and tidal turbines with the surrounding environment. The fundamental courses are supplemented by courses in data analysis (such as machine learning or signal processing) and in experimental methods.

The program is based on the broad expertise available in Grenoble from internationally recognized researchers in fluid mechanics of natural environments.

The program is entirely taught in English and no knowledge of French is required.

The program is organized as follows:

First YEAR (M1 "AppLIED MEChanics")

Second year (M2 "ENVironmental fluid mechanics")

  • Lectures, tutorials and labs over the two semesters (39 ECTS);
  • 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.

Opportunities for graduates :

- PhD thesis in France or abroad

- A career in industry or in environmental agencies.
