The Advanced Composite Engineering and Science programme of Centrale Nantes studies the performance of fibre-reinforced organic-matrix composites and structures are influenced by the constituting materials and the processing stage. Composite mechanical design can be efficiently and optimally performed when one has a good understanding of manufacturing influences and constraints. Therefore, the courses offered in this program will provide a theoretical and experimental emphasis on the relationships between constituents, processing and structural design.
- Simulate and optimize composite mechanical design and manufacturing using numerical tools
- Model materials’ behavior and physics involved in composite processes
- Characterize and manufacture composite materials
In addition to the above specialism-specific skills, students will also develop more general skills:
- Identify models, perform simulation and analyse results
- Communicate comprehensive results in a meaningful way
- Undertake bibliographic surveys of international research and professional literature
- Manage or be part of a project
Prospects for employment or further study
- Sectors: Aeronautics, Automotive, Transportation, Wind and Marine Energy, Materials Producers, Consulting
- Fields: Mechanical Engineering, Design, Materials, Advanced Processes, Manufacturing, Research and Innovation
- Positions: Mechanical Engineer, Process Engineer, Design Engineer, Research and Innovation Engineer (post PhD), Consultant
