Centrale Nantes, Ecole navale and ENSM create a Specialised Master

Partager l'article

Within the framework of their collaboration in research and training, Centrale Nantes, Ecole navale and ENSM will offer in October 2018 a Specialised Master in a growing sector, Life Cycle of ship : the Specialised Master « Life Cycle Assessment of Ship (MS LICAS) ».

From design to construction, during operations, when being decommissioned, before scrapping and recycling, it is essential to take into consideration the environmental impact of the life cycle of a ship in order to meet the new statutory constraints. The companies in fisheries, trade, service, boating, science and the Navy, have to involve experts able to evaluate the environmental impact and suggest procedures and actions to mitigate this impact.

The goals of the MS LICAS are to train experts in the life cycle of a ship, competent in research and development as well as in project management. The graduates will apply for engineer-level positions or as designers in design offices, as environmental managers, QSE engineering in shipyards, in design offices or in shipping companies.

The MS LICAS lasts 12 months. It has been approved by the Grandes Ecoles Conference (CGE). It consists in over 350 hours of lectures and a 6-month practical training in-company, validated by the viva of a professional thesis. The specialities of the partner academies cover all the sectors of the operations of a ship according to 5 focuse developed in the programme: environment, eco-design and life cycle, life cycle economy, technological and industrial aspects of the life cycle, construction/scrapping, regulation, project management.

The course targets an audience wishing to gain an expertise, a double competence or willing to further in a sector in order to evolve professionall

The MS LICAS targets students in initial or ongoing training. It is accessible to Bac+6 levels (engineer-level title, M2, French Register of Professional Certification (RNCP) level 1) or an M1+a three-year professional experience. The lectures will take place in Nantes (Centrale Nantes and ENSM) and includes a study visit at Lanvéoc Poulmic (Ecole Navale).
