BSc - Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

General

Program Description

BSc - Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

The subject area of mechanics provides teaching in the engineering sciences and, more particularly, in the fields of the mechanics of fluids and energetics, the engineering of structures and materials, acoustics, robotics, industrial automation or civil engineering.

In the second year of the licence, scientific teaching is reinforced in four fundamental disciplines - mathematics, physics, computer science and mechanics. In the fourth semester, through a choice of optional teaching, students are introduced to the different domains of application of mechanics.

In the third year, according to students’ tastes, a specialisation is offered in one of the four programmes of study within the subject area. Two of these programmes of study lead to a master’s degree in engineering sciences (SDI – sciences de l’ingénieur):

  • Mechanics and modelling
  • Mechanics and technologies (organised in partnership with ENS of Cachan)

There are two other professional training programmes, involving alternating periods of university lectures and work placements and apprenticeship:

  • Motor propellant group and its environment (GMPE – groupe motopropulseur et son environnement)
  • Industrial engineering (GI – génie industriel) with two options: innovation and industrial development (IDI – innovation et développement industriel) and international chargé d’affaires (CAI – chargé d’affaires international).

Opportunities

Further studies

A master’s in engineering sciences (SDI) in one or other of its two mechanics specialisations: mechanics of fluids, energetics and environment (MFE) and mechanics and materials and structures (MIS). These studies can also allow students to join an engineering school.

Professional integration

Areas of employment cover the industries of mechanics, metallurgy, process engineering, calculation centres, industrial development laboratories, the field of
transport, the automobile and aeronautical industries or also energy production.

Organization

Obtaining a level L2 requires the acquisition of 7 teaching units (TU) in mechanics (18 ECTS), mathematics (12 ECTS), physics (6 ECTS), computer science (6 ECTS) and of 4 optional teaching units (15 ECTS) and 1 teaching unit in a language (3 ECTS).

Mechanics and modelling programme

Level L3 consists of 9 TU in mechanics (33 ECTS), mathematics (6 ECTS) and digital methods (12 ECTS), 1 optional unit (6 ECTS) and 1 language and professional integration unit (3 ECTS).

Mechanics and technologies programme

Level L3 consists of 7 TUs in mechanics (21 ECTS), technologies (15 ECTS), mathematics (6 ECTS) and digital methods (6 ECTS), 3 optional units (9 ECTS) and 1 language and professional integration unit (3 ECTS).


Well-targeted public

– Entry into level L2 is open to students who have done a programme of study in mathematics, computer science, mechanics, electronics (MIME) and physics, chemistry, mechanics, electronics (PCME) in the integration cycle of UPMC or students who have done a programme of study that is judged to be equivalent in another establishment.

– Entry into level L3 assumes the acquisition of level L2 at UPMC or another university.

– Students who have done one or two years of preparatory classes for the grandes écoles, holders of a DUT and BTS and students who have done a multi-disciplinary scientific programme of study after the baccalauréat can enter at level L2 or L3 after their application has been examined.

In 2009, UPMC celebrated both the rehabilitation of the Zamansky tour and nine centuries of university activity on the site of the Saint Victor Abbey, renowned as a center of the Western intellectual renaissance, with a famous library and a training center for clerics. This school, founded by Guillaume de Champeaux in 1109, played a major role in the intellectual effervescence of the Latin Quarter for several centuries.Grammar, rhetoric, dialectics, music, arithmetic, geometry, astronomy and even technology were all taught there.After the Revolution, the site was occupied by various warehouses, then the “halle aux vins”, before being reintegrated into the world of research as a part of the Faculty of Science of the University of Paris in 1959.Under André Malraux’s leadership, the decision on the Albert project and the tower were made in 1963. And nine hundred years later, UPMC continues the quest for knowledge of the highest order in the heart of Paris. Faculties and institutesUPMC is composed of seven departments and faculties: chemistry, engineering, mathematics, medicine, physics, life sciences, earth sciences, environment, and biodiversity. It also boasts an engineering school - Polytech'Paris UPMC, the Paris Astrophysics Institute, the Henri Poincaré Institute and 3 marine stations at Roscoff, Banyuls, and Villefranche-sur-Mer that have Universe sciences observatory (OSU) status.Within the faculty of mathematics is ISUP, the premier school of statistics in France.UPMC and the Val-d'Oise Yvelines chamber of commerce came together to create the first apprenticeship training body within a university framework: CFA UPMC.
