Objectives

One of the world’s most pressing challenges is to meet the fast-growing energy demand while at the same time reducing greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions. Today, and for the foreseeable future, 80% of the energy consumed in France comes from fossil fuels (over 85% in developed countries, and almost 100% in developing countries), but the production of renewable and nuclear energy is bound to increase sharply. This situation opens exciting new challenges in developing cleaner and more efficient energy production methods, as well as more effective energy distribution systems.

The general objectives of the M1 are to:

  • provide the scientific background required in the field of energy. In particular in transport phenomena, chemical engineering, materials, reactive media, treatment and conversion of electrical energy;
  • give, through the core curriculum, an introduction to great energy challenges;
  • give a first experience of numerical methods required to solve complex problems.

Course Prerequisites

Good background in physics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering or electrical engineering and strong skills in mathematics.
Bachelor level or equivalent.

Skills
  • Identify major issues in the energy field.

  • Understand disciplines related to energy such as thermodynamics, transport phenomena, reactive media, materials, chemical engineering.

  • Use and develop adapted models, choose the right modeling scale and the simplifying assumptions relevant to energy problems.

  • Design, detail and corroborate a complex energy system.

  • Analyze problems related to the energy production, conversion and storage.

  • Structure ideas within the framework of a project around a research theme.

Post-graduate profile

The students of the M1 research program will benefit from the industrial partnership of the CentraleSupelec and the University Paris-Saclay in the field of energy: production, transport and distribution of energy, propulsion, etc. This partnership takes various forms such as conferences, classes or student projects. The goal of this Master 1 program is to provide solid scientific foundations in the field of energy science. In particular, it prepares students to join all M2 specialties offered in the Energy program of University Paris-Saclay. All M1 classes are given in English and intensive French courses are scheduled for non-French-speaking students in order to give them access to the M2 specialties which are mostly taught in French.

Covid-19 context (start of the academic year 2020-2021 for this training)

Training offering exclusively via distance-learning until December 2020 for international students detained outside France

Programme

Basics of energy sciences are given here. This includes an introduction to transport phenomena and fundamentals of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, electrical energy and reactive media. In addition to these courses, laboratory classes are proposed. During the semester English and French language lectures are given to improve scientific communication skills and to give access to French culture.

Fundamentals of materials science and thermodynamics are given here. The students will work during the entire semester on a research project proposed in one of the university research labs. Three courses will be chosen from a list which includes energy conversion, renewable energy, economics, chemical engineering, simulations and multiphysics coupling and nuclear energy. French and English language courses will complete the second semester.
