French Australian partnership leads to new Double Master's Degree

Friday, 1 March 2019

Talented engineering students will be able to study for a dual Master’s degree – specifically in mechanical engineering and acoustics - to be offered in Australia and France.

The announcement, made today by the University of Adelaide and French engineering school Ecole Centrale de Lyon, is the latest in the University’s growing commitment to defence skills, education and research.

The Dual Degree Agreement has been signed by representatives of both institutions in Canberra.

The University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Professor Pascale Quester, says : “With this elite program, we offer our leading students the opportunity to study at the heart of a cooperation with an international institution that is at the forefront of research in the field, and has a remarkable network of industrial partners.

“Students graduating with this degree will launch their career on the basis of a very strong scientific, technical and cross-cultural foundation, and have the manifest ability to pursue a global path with industry or academia.”

The new international Master’s program will see students complete two semesters at their home institution and two at their host institution and will be offered from 2020.

Students who complete the program will be awarded two Master’s degrees : a Master of Engineering (Mechanical) from the University of Adelaide, and a Master of Science in Acoustics from Ecole Centrale de Lyon.
