Master in Turbulence

The master is taught in English

It lasts four semesters: three semesters of classes and a final semester in laboratories. At the end of the program, students are graduated of a Master of Science (MSc). Two semesters are instructed at the Centrale Lille and a semester is shared between ENSI Poitiers and ENSMA. Centrale Lille Institut and ENSMA are two of the leading French Engineering Schools (“Grandes Ecoles”). The last semester is dedicated to the “Master Thesis” which is carried out in France or abroad within various industrial and/or academic collaborative environments. A minimum fellowship of 600€/month is attributed for the 6 months Master thesis when it is conducted in France.

The program concerns fundamental modern approaches, numeric and experimental, of turbulent flows. French as a foreign language and French culture are taught as an option to help foreigner students to enjoy their stay in France.

Most of the classes are given by senior CNRS researchers and full professors from the LMFL and PPRIME laboratories (J.C. Vassilicos, J.M. Foucaut, J.P. Laval, P. Jordan, R. Manceau, J. Rolland …).

An International Advisory Board chaired by J.C. Vassilicos meets once a year and ensures that the content and delivery of the Masters course are up to date with international developments of both academic and industrial relevance in the wide field of turbulence and turbulent flows. The members of this board are:

B. Frohnapfel (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
W.K. George (Imperial College London and Chalmers University of Technology)
M. Hultmark (Princeton University)
P. Spalart (Retired from NASA and Boeing)
A. Lozano-Duran (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
M Stanislas (Emeritus from Centrale Lille Institut)

More than a hundred students are graduated of our diploma. They all started their career in the industry or in the academia. The involved industries cover a large spectra : aeronautics, automobile, chemistry, oil & gas, renewable energies, and consulting. Around half of the graduates keep up with a doctoral thesis (PhD).
