Hi,
I'm new to this place, though I am used to CFD on and off for a while. I'm applying for Masters degree now, and could use some details regarding the following course (Interntional Master in Turbulence -I know this question has been posted here before, but it didn't receive any good attention back then),

http://lml.univ-lille1.fr/lml/equipe/er2/IMP/

Is there anyone who is currently enrolled or completed this course? Is this course internationally accepted, i.e, do western universities accept this degree holder for a PhD without any restrictions?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hi!
I haven't completed this masters so I will probably not be able to completely answer your question. However, I am French and completed a 1-year international (English-taught) masters in fluid mechanics last year in France.

What I call tell you is that:

- the masters you're talking about, and in general, any masters from a French university, are internationally recognized, i.e. you will be able to do a PhD after that anywhere you want (as far as the degree requirement is concerned...)

- however the "prestige" of the university and masters program may make a difference as you apply for PhD. Also, "better" universities have better professors who are connected with professors everywhere in the world and it might be easier to get where you want for your PhD

- the French system works as follows: bachelors degree takes 3 years, then add 2 years for a masters (with the last 6 months of the last year being a research internship, in most universities). If you come from a country where your bachelors took 4 years to complete, you may apply directly for the 2nd year of the masters (called M2, Masters 2, while the 1st year is called M1). I encourage you to do so if you meet the coursework requirements as this will save you a year (and money).

- the masters I followed (M2, 2nd year only) is widely recognized as being the best in France in fluid mechanics (and I think, not only in France ). The masters description is:
http://www.mecanique.polytechnique.e...-m2-78062.kjsp
Last year (2013-2014), we were about 20 to follow this program, and more than the half were from abroad (and didn't speak French!)
The first year (M1 in Mechanics) is however taught in French... The (English) description is here:
http://www.enseignement.polytechniqu...ECA-M1-UK.html
The M2 course is very comprehensive about fluid mechanics, and taught by the most respected researchers of the community. Of course, it doesn't focus on turbulence only (which I think is too narrow for a masters...). But if you love turbulence, it will be taught anyway and you can decide to do your masters thesis (6 months) on that topic with the supervision of a great researcher! If you don't know the school where this masters is taught, you can check it out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89cole_Polytechnique

- I also know of a good masters program by the von Karman institute in Belgium: https://www.vki.ac.be/index.php/educ...er-mainmenu-47
My idea is that is is more "applied" than the one I told you about (which is rather theoretical)

I hope I provided you with a little help, and please ask me questions if you need anything!

Adrien

Thanks Adrien, Never expected to get a reply this soon. I didn't know about the system in France and that really helps me.

I'm looking for a Master's Degree in Turbulence or hypersonics. Since, you're doing a PhD in Fluid Mechanics, could you advise me about some universities which are doing good research in those areas?

FYI, It's been 2 years since I completed my Bachelor's Degree - India, and I (am not up-to-date) have lost knowledge of the research going on in the field.

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks again.

For curiosity I just checked the master you were talking about, and I saw UPMC and especially Mr. Zaleski (my first turbulence teacher at P6)
