Description M1
The IFMA student engineer, specialising in advanced mechanics, will develop over two years of study a real body of technical know-how, but also soft skills.

By proposing an original syllabus, combining a professional and a personal project, IFMA gives student engineers the possibility of customising the course programme. They may choose between 5 orientations according to their personal project. The aim is to give each student the opportunity to decide on a career and to choose, depending on his or her professional focus, the most appropriate course programme.

With its laboratories and its Technology Transfer Centre (CTT), IFMA offers an ideal working environment and real-life situations, enabling students to move quickly from theoretical courses to practical applications.
