Advanced Master

MS DMS - Design of Materials and Structures

Materials, Mechanics, Modelling


The MINES ParisTech Advanced Master's Degree "Design of Materials and Structures is a high-level up-to-date post-master educational programme in materials and modelling field.
It is certified by the French Conference des Grandes Ecoles (C.G.E.).
The courses are taught in French.


This high-level specialized training is led in association with industrial partners. It covers analytical techniques and materials testing for mechanical and physical applications, and provides both theoretical and hands-on training in the use of numerical modelling tools for structural design.


Academic courses and practical exercices
This part takes place in the Departement of Research on Materials at Evry Centre de recherche des Matriaux (MAT) de MINES ParisTech :
1- Basic courses
- Continuum Mechanics
- Physical metallurgy : basics
- Numerical methods
- Experimental methods and techniques
2- Focused courses
- Plasticity
- Physical metallurgy of alloys
- Finite elements for linear and non linear problems
- Life predictions of structures
- Tools and methods for innovation projects
