This course is delivered on the Nantes campus, city where the academic and industrial environment creates favourable conditions to the development of marine engineering activities, from both training and research and innovation and production point of view.
The French Maritime Academy connected with the main actors of the Pays de la Loire region which blooms with maritime companies specialised in MRE and construction.
The new Technocampus Océan where the Academy has premises strengthened the region’s attractiveness. This research and development centre as well the IRT Jules Verne, focused on ship construction and MRE, pool researchers, technicians, industrial partners, engineer-level institutions and laboratorie.
In addition to the lectures delivered at the Academy, the students attend conferences such as :
