Introduction

An engineer at Polytech Nantes who specialises in Thermal and Energy Sciences (TE) is a generalist engineer who has a solid understanding of thermal engineering and energy. The mastery of the scientific and technical methods and tools in this field lies at the heart of an engineer's education. Students develop a number of skills including the design and optimisation of thermal and energetic systems and industrial processes or installations where energy conversion and heat transfer play a major role. More specific instructions appeals to the scientific disciplines of thermodynamics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and energy transfer.

Objectives

The objective of the Thermal Energy specialty (TE) is to develop general skills in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer and in-depth skills in climate engineering, thermal engineering and industrial systems, as well as in the transformation processes of polymers and composites.
  • Designing, optimizing systems, processes or industrial facilities where energy conversions and heat transfer play a major role.
  • Designing and sizing new equipment: predicting, innovating, achieving maximum energy efficiency.
  • Implementing numerical simulation methods and tools to understand "state-of-the-art" issues.
  • Managing complex projects: integrating commercial and regulatory dimensions, taking into account environmental and social constraints as well as cultural differences.

Prerequisite

Prerequisites training

Admission process for French speaking students

French speaking students can apply directly on polytech-admission.org with a foreign scientific diploma and obtain a French engineering degree (Master’s degree in engineering). Selected students follow courses with fellow French students. Depending on the country where applicants are studying, they may be required to follow the “Etudes en France” studies & visa application process.

Admission process for non-french speaking students in Polytech partner universities

Initiated by the AVOSTTI Project, the Polytech Group has developed a 2 phase programme allowing students to start scientific/technological studies and French learning in their country and then to follow their engineering studies in France in one of its 14 engineering faculties. Current active partners are located in China : Ocean University of China (OUC) of Qingdao, South China University of Technology (SCUT - Guangzhou), Xidian University of Xi’an, etc.

Admission process for non-french speaking students from other universities

Several Polytech engineering faculties have developed bridging program (n+i, Polytech Mundus) allowing non-French speaking students (with a scientific Bachelor’s level) to gain French fluency and thus follow French engineering studies. The programme consists in a first year of intensive courses in French language and French scientific culture (with a scientific/technology major such as mechanics, computer science, electronics…) and 2 years of engineering studies among fellow French students.

Conditions of applications

Admission to initial training with student status is common to all schools in the Polytech network. This is a unique and valid application for all 14 schools, regardless of your academic background.

Program

Thermal and energy science program

5th year options: 

  • Refrigeration technology, air conditioning systems
  • Polymers and composites
  • Thermomechanical engineering
  • Transversal option (MAQSE-i): Quality, Safety and Environmental Management

The teacher-researchers mainly work in the LTeN (Laboratoire de Thermocinétique de Nantes).

The engineering studies include three compulsory internships:

  • 3rd year: internship in a company (4 weeks minimum) 
  • 4th year: Internship in the student’s specialisation in a company or laboratory (8 to 15 weeks)
  • 5th year: end of studies internship in a contracted company or laboratory (4 and half to 6 months)

A stay of at least 13 weeks abroad is compulsory during the three years of study. This mobility can take the form of a summer internship, an end-of-studies internship or a semester abroad.
