    Study

    Since 2011, the Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics - Electrical and Information Engineering departments have shared a common first-year curriculum. It is designed to provide the solid scientific and multidisciplinary foundation in mechanics and technology that students will need for their master's specialization.

    In second year, students in the Civil Engineering Department complete the first year of their master's (M1).

    In third year, students have two possibilities:

     

    In fourth year, students complete their research-based Master's degree (M2). Two programmes are offered by the Civil Engineering Department:

    • ECD Envelopes and Sustainable Building
    • MAISES Structural Engineering and Materials.

    Research

    At Cachan, civil engineering research is mainly conducted through LMT Cachan, a joint ENS Paris-Saclay and CNRS
