International Masters

Centrale Marseille and its partners promote high-level studies with a multitude of advantages through its international Master's programmes for engineering students.

In addition to learning from experts in their respective fields, international Master's programmes guarantee a dynamic approach to education. They also provide students with the opportunity for individual and multicultural development, along with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of a foreign language. International Master’s programmes are also an opportunity for students to integrate high-level training in world-renowned academic and research establishments. In parallel to the high-level scientific training, students learn essential skills needed nowadays in research and engineering all over the world.

Master in Physics Typical Course: Europhotonics

The first year introduces students to the fields of photonics with an emphasis on the fundamentals (electromagnetism, physical optics and optoelectronics). The second year focuses on the application of knowledge through two highly professionalizing semesters:

- The first semester of the second year deals with quantum optics, laser sources and their applications, biophotonics, nanophotonics, optical instrumentation, astronomy and numerical methods for modelling the physical phenomena covered - seven weeks of learning is carried out in the laboratories attached to the course.

- The second semester of the second year is a 4-to-6-month internship in a laboratory or in industry for a proactive experience and a first professional experience.

The objective of the Europhotonics course is to give students the ability to develop an activity in the sectors of optics and photonics, electromagnetism, remote sensing, image processing, telecommunications, imaging in different environments and instrumentation. The main fields applying these technologies are related to medical research, space technology, the defence industry, industrial production control...

The quality of the POESII-Europhotonics programme is based on the diversity of the laboratories involved: four research laboratories at AMU as well as several laboratories at our German and Spanish partners. The professionalization aspect of internships and projects in industries allows students to quickly integrate a company at the end of their degree. The Master Europhotonics associates the latest trends in both industries and research on an international level.

Although the second year of the Master’s programme is based on the foundations of the first year of the Europhotonics programme, students who have completed the first year of a Physics major or a third year of an engineering school can also apply.

The Master WAVES

The WAVES curricular programme takes place over a two-year period. Each of the 4 semesters corresponds to 30 ECTS and allows students to become proficient in the following applications: urban noise, acoustic insulation, integrated health control, non-destructive testing and non-linear acoustic systems. These areas have a strong relevance in the field of Acoustics on an international level.

The Master focuses on multiple expertise, articulating the theoretical framework with experimental methodology and numerical modelling. The aim is to provide students with the knowledge and tools to design, characterize, model and understand acoustic systems and devices.

To meet the sophisticated challenges of Acoustics, the WAVES Master's degree relies on its international nature to transmit fundamental and transdisciplinary knowledge of acoustics, while mobilizing various multidisciplinary capabilities.

Thus, WAVES graduates will be a new generation of scientific executives with a strong capacity to adapt to new professional contexts and to take up the ethical, environmental and societal challenges related to Acoustics.

The transdisciplinarity of the WAVES Master's degree emerges through the lecturers and researchers of four institutions. The first semester is carried out at the University of Coimbra in Portugal, the second at the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain, and the third semester is carried out in Marseille with Aix-Marseille University and Ecole Centrale Marseille (AMU-ECM). Each of these semesters focuses on specific areas but are not exclusively limited to them.

The fourth semester is dedicated to the preparation of the master's thesis within the framework of an internship.
