The Wave Physics and Acoustics programme at Le Mans Université is dedicated for high level students with diverse educational backgrounds (including e.g. Bachelor Degrees in physics, mechanical/ electrical engineering, material science and acoustics), who wish to pursue an international career in academia or in leading companies.
It is an international Master's program with an excellent scientific training, and a careful choice of state-of-the-art research lectures, in direct relation to the latest research findings of the international scientific community (e.g. topological acoustics, machine learning in acoustic emission, metamaterials…).
Funded by IA-GS, this program offers excellence scholarships, international mobility grants, dedicated students’ spaces (Fablab, reconfigurable work place, openlab...).
Advanced lectures on waves by international invited experts will also be delivered in the curriculum (gravitational waves, X-ray micro-tomography, solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates, metamaterials…)
To guarantee the proper integration of the students and monitor their progress, each of them will benefit from a unique and individual supervision by a CNRS research scientist or a faculty member, recognized in his/her discipline, who will monitor the progress of the student and guide him/her in the construction of a personalized curriculum according to his/her scientific objectives and interests.
At the end of each semester, the student will present a progress report and discuss his/her project with his/her supervisor. The selection of the mentor will be based on the background and the research interests of each student, and will be validated by the Graduate School Steering Committee.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
