This programme (in collaboration with Grenoble INP - Génie Industriel) trains engineers in the skills required to develop manufactured products, from the design phase, through modelling and simulation of systems in virtual environments, to the creation of the first physical prototypes.


The specialization programme is divided into four semesters:

  • Semester 3 (S3) covers fundamental concepts of mechanical design: CAD modelling, simulation, product & process technologies and marketing analysis.
  • Semester 4 (S4) focuses on a technical project supervised by teaching staff.
  • Semester 5 (S5) reinforces specific skills: integrated design, collaborative design and innovation management and environmental risk management.
  • Semester 6 (S6) is dedicated to the Final Project either in a laboratory or an industry.
