The BioMechanics (BioMECH) provides fundamental tools and in-depth knowledge on the biomedical applications of mechanics and related fields. (BioMECH) education and training focus on recent and anticipated developments in biomechanics that hold promise for innovative solutions to major health problems and that respond to industrial challenges.
The lectures, team projects, case studies, and engineering and medical invited conferences by academic and industrial experts enable students to benefit from a stimulating and multidisciplinary environment.
This program provides scientists, engineers, and medical students with the wherewithal to face the numerous challenges of biomechanics R&D; how to apply their skills in order to solve specific biomedical problems, how to carry out innovative and fruitful research with the appropriate methods and ethical considerations, how to collaborate and interact in projects at the interfaces among mechanics, materials, and biomedical science.
A set of core teaching units provides a broad overview of basic and state-of-the-art knowledge of biomechanics and its methods.
In-depth focus on major biomechanics issues and research is developed in a series of four sub-tracks.
Two subtracks are proposed:
M2 BioMechanics (BioMECH) / Engineering Science
M2 BioMechanics (BioMECH) / Health Science
Each student chooses a sub-track and selects a set of at least four teaching units: three specific to the particular sub-track and one from the general master’s program. A pedagogical commission of lecturers and researchers assists students and helps them to devise a personalized program consistent with their individual backgrounds and professional objectives.
Engineering Science subtrack
Semester 3 Engineering Science subtrack
3 ECTS to be picked among
3/6 ECTS to be picked among
12/15 ECTS to be picked among
One course (3 or 6 ECTS) in another Master (subject to Master chairs’ authorizations)
Semester 4 Engineering Science subtrack
As far as the non mandatory courses are concerned, the students’ choices will have to be discussed with the track chairs and will be finalized during the interdisciplinary week, taking the student’s personal background and interests into consideration. It will then be validated in a co-signed contract of study.
The courses students will eventually attend will also depend on actual availability: some courses might not open because of an insufficient number of attendees, while others may have a limited capacity and not be able to offer a seat to all.
As indicated, a course may be offered to BME Paris students outside the track which supports it. In such cases, priority will be given to students enrolled in the supporting track.
Students enrolled in other Arts et Métiers, Université de Paris or Université PSL programs may also attend a BME Paris course, provided that:
- their respective program chairs support their application
- the course is not already full
- the relevant BME Paris chairs accept their applications which must include a CV and a motivation letter
Health Science subtrack
