Advanced Master

MS MAPMOD - Digital Materials and Advanced Processes Modelling

Materials and modelling


The MINES ParisTech Advanced Master's Degree MAPMOD is a high-level up-to-date post-master programme in the field of materials and modelling. It is certified by the French Conference des Grandes Ecoles (CGE).
It is entirely taught in English.


This Advanced Master is a one-year training programme designed to meet todays industrial expectations in the field of materials.


The Advanced Master provides each student with the possibility to build his own program by selecting a coherent set of courses after having taken a compulsory set of courses. Some pre defined cursus are proposed such as computational metallurgy, experimental characterisation of materials, computational mechanics for materials

6 months of theoretical and applied courses evaluated through applied technical , scientific and management projects:

1- Basics 150h
Continuum Mechanics
Numerical analysis
Materials physics
Characterisation Basics
Mechanics of Materials

2- Specialization (to be selected) 100h
Numerical Analysis

3- Professionalizing 150h
Scientific Presentation
Project Management
Job prospection
Industrial Conferences
Industrial Visits

4- Preparing the professional thesis - 200h
Besides these courses, students will work during all the year on an industrial project defined in cooperation with one of our many industrial partners, part-time work during the first semester and full time during the professional training project:

Six months of professional training project:
This 6 months full-time training period is a specific research project performed for a company. The topics are jointly selected by senior researchers of CEMEF and by the companies where student will perform the work. The student will be supervised by a researcher and a representative from the company hosting the student. The project is completed by a written report and an oral defence.

Skills acquired

At the end of the programme, the students will be able to:
- apply their expertise on materials processing and characterization
- solve industrial problems using numerical modelling tools
- validate modelling approaches using experimental data
- manage pluri-disciplinary projects

Professional openings

- R&D positions for national and international companies in the following areas: automotive, software development, aeronautics, energy, automotive supplier, engineering design,..
