The Transfers-Fluids-Materials in Aeronautical and Space Applications (TFM-ASA) program at University of Bordeaux combines studies and research based on aerodynamics, thermodynamics, compressible flows, turbulence, propulsion, combustion, turbomachinery, material science, to name a few. These themes are all directly connected with technical and fundamental studies as well as with aircraft, spacecraft, drone issues, etc. The program is jointly managed by three academic European partners (France, Germany and Belgium) together with the support and expertise of:
- Bordeaux / France: Industrial partners such as IRT St Exupery (Technological Research Institute), BAAS Society (Bordeaux Aquitaine Aéronautique et Spatial) and Aerospace Valley. Leading research laboratories, strongly involved in the aeronautic field such as I2M, LCTS, IMB (UBx).
- Louvain-la-Neuve / Belgium: Applied Research Center CENEARO. Research Laboratories: IMMC (UCL).
- Cottbus-Senftenberg / Germany: Closed collaborations with space agencies (ESA, DLR), ROLLS ROYCE, MTU Aero Engines. Research Laboratory: CFTM² at BTU
Strengths of this Master program?
- International program taught by experts (academics and industrial partners) from three different universities in Europe.
- Joint French/German and Belgian Master degree.
- International mobility period in the partner countries (2 semesters).
- Close collaboration with industrial partners and research institutes with a guarantee of intensive training periods.
After this Master program?
After graduation, students may access career opportunities such as:
- Engineers in companies / engineering departments of aeronautical and space sectors.
- Continuing their studies as PhD students and, after completion of their PhD, becoming postdoctoral researchers or assistant professors in universities or engineering schools.
