Develop excellent technical and scientific skills in fluid mechanics through a broad range of courses with Master in Fluid Mechanics at Institut Polytechnique de Paris.


Benefit from a research-focused program with close links to the state of the art Institut Polytechnique de Paris laboratories with Fluid Mechanics.

This Fluid Mechanics Master’s program offers an overall teaching experience covering the main active research domains in fluid mechanics through lectures in aeronautics, bio-mechanics, magnetohydrodynamics and fluid-structure interactions. The second year is dedicated to fundamental and theoretical fluid mechanics as well as numerical and experimental aspects, plus, possibly, a short research project. The second part of the year consists in an internship either in academic or industrial laboratories.

The first year is dedicated to the fundamentals in Mechanics.  The research areas cover smart structures, environmental sciences, complex fluids, turbulence, waves and metamaterials.


This program opens up a wide range of career opportunities. Most students pursue a PhD in an academic or industrial laboratory, while others directly join the research and development team of a private company.
