Take a theoretical look into the behaviors of materials and structures, and gain a strong mathematical foundation to support studies in material behavior under stress and material failure analysis. The MS in Engineering Mechanics provides preparation for doctoral studies or professional practice. You can choose from three MS degree options: the thesis option, the report option, and the signature course work option. The department’s research thrust areas include advanced power systems, mechanics of multi-scale materials, multidisciplinary engineering dynamic systems, multi-scale sensors and systems, and space systems.
Through the following links you can visit the web page and contact the professors-scientists who are authorized to supervise thesis within the EDAR program.
A co-direction of thesis is also possible, associating one EPFL scientist and one of the thesis directors. For more information about this possibility and its implications, please refer to co-directing a thesis in Doctoral school EDOC whose regulations are applicable in EDAR program.
