The Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering is a new graduate program of the Université de Lyon, operated by the École Centrale de Lyon. It offers a two-year program in Master 1 (M1) [common-core syllabus] and Master 2 (M2) [2 options: "Aerospace Propulsion (PAS)" and "Dynamic and Sustainability of Composite Materials (DDC)"].
The concerned disciplinary fields are fluid mechanics and energy, solid and structural mechanics, materials, and control engineering, in relation with three renowned research laboratories of Lyon: LMFA, LTDS and Ampère.
The Master is in line with the strategic axis "Science and engineering for a sustainable society" defined by the Université de Lyon, as well as with two social challenges identified by the École Centrale de Lyon, "Aeronautics and space" and "Increasing the competitiveness of the industrial economy through innovation and entrepreneurship".
The purpose is to train future technical leaders and researchers for all aspects of the aerospace industry from major constructors like SAFRAN and Airbus, to component suppliers. A special attention is paid to make students aware of codes, languages and common practice in the industry. Furthermore, this industry is intrinsically transnational, with numerous opportunities to work abroad with connections to France or to work in France with connections to other countries. So the students are given the opportunity to develop international/intercultural skills.
It is to notice that the aerospace industry is subjected to long-term cycles. A "design" dominated stage with ambitious projects (A380, A350, A400M, EC 175, LEAP, …) is ending, while a "production" dominated stage is starting for the next decade. The problematic is thus moving from the design of large complex systems to the continuous optimisation of components, taking into account manufacturing and maintainability constraints, in particular with the increasing implementation of composite materials. The provided training is supporting such a change.
More specifically, the M2 option "Aerospace Propulsion" is focusing on the design process of an aircraft or a rocket engine, providing a practical understanding of all aspects of the industry, from design to manufacture and maintenance. Graduates should drive components redesign, for optimisation for new purposes or for adaptation to new production processes or maintenance procedures.
The collaborative degree shows a level of commitment to the development of technical and professional skills that would impress any employer. Students – and potential employers – also benefit from the knowledge gained from faculty at two institutions. With the increasing globalization of the technical workforce, degrees that span institutions and provide an international perspective are particularly valuable.
In today’s competitive technology environment, top opportunities are going to skilled engineers who have a wide-range of professional capabilities. Aero-Systems Operations (AESOP) is an exceptional program joining UBx expertise in maintenance with UC expertise in engineering. Students at each university may purse UC CEAS' Master of Engineering (MEng) and UBx’s International Diploma collaboratively.
