Description M1
VA: ENSIM's Vibrations / Acoustics course is for all scientists, be they musicians or not, who are passionately interested in sound and vibration phenomena. As acoustics is the science of sound, the task of an acoustic engineer is to analyse, control and reduce sound and vibration pollution, thus helping improve the quality of life.
SPMI: it trains engineers with versatile skills in instrumentation, sensors and measurement, specialising in micro-systems, acoustic micro-sensors, acoustic/ optical/ chemical/ thermal sensors, providing them with the optical metrology tools required to characterise them. It provides skills for all those involved in the measuring process from the physical process of information gathering, conditioning and processing through to desicion-making.

Syllabus - VA: it is designed to deliver scientific expertise enabling students to master all the stages in the design process for acoustic and vibratory engineering. The main tools used in VA engineering are acoustic/ vibratory/ vibro-acoustic metrology, digital modelling and simulation, data calibration, identification of signatures, diagnostics and decision-making, adjustment of active and passive control elements, assessment and non-destructive testing.
Syllabus - SPMI: it is ideally suited to students passionate about advanced technology, who are drawn to the world of infinitely small and fascinated by the magical aspect of light and lasers. Students who are enthusiatic about the idea of making micro-systems will derive satisfaction from the ENSIM syllabus, as will those who wish to find out about the use of phototonic techniques for non-intrusive systems analysis, these devices being apprehended via innovative technologies.

Careers - VA: ENSIM VA graduates work in design, R&D, specialised consultancies, SMEs and major groups, as well as in research laboratories. Either working on their own or as part of a team, they supervise and set up innovative approaches and solutions to control sonic and vibratory fields. The disciplinary fields covered include automobile, aerospace, railway acoustics, environmental acoustics, room acoustics and musical acoustics.
Careers - SPMI: SPMI general engineers work in design engineering, R&D, as well as consultancy and manufacture, in all cutting-edge fields where sensors are essential for information gathering, such as the aerospace, automobile, medical instrumentation industries, the environment and sustainable development, industrial production, process development and monitoring.
