The École Centrale de Lyon and the University of Adelaide signed a double master's degree agreement in mechanical engineering and acoustics on Tuesday 25 February in Canberra (Australia).
This agreement underlines the growing commitment of both institutions to student training and research.
École Centrale de Lyon was represented by Professor Richard Perkins, Director of International Relations, in the presence of Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
"Through this program, we are offering our engineering students the opportunity to study at the heart of an international institution at the forefront of field research, with a remarkable network of industrial partners," said Pascale Quester, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Adelaide. "Students graduating with this degree will begin their careers with a very strong scientific, technical and intercultural background and will have the ability to pursue an international career in industry or academia."
This new international Master's degree programme will allow engineering students to spend two semesters in their home institution and two more in their host institution from the start of the 2020 academic year. They will obtain two diplomas at the end of their training: a Master in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Adelaide and a Master in Acoustics, accredited by the University of Lyon, managed by the École Centrale de Lyon, in collaboration with INSA-Lyon, ENTPE and Polytech-Lyon (Lyon 1 University).
