Learning outcomes of the course :  
The second quadrimester of Master 2 is devoted to preparing the end-of-study work. It consists in personal scientific work on a topic defined jointly with the promoter. The work can be a planning or managing assignment as well as research work. It can be carried out in a laboratory, a private or public research center, or a company, and take place in Belgium, Europe, or overseas. After completing the course the student is expected to:
  • demonstrate that he can work independently;
  • identify and solve a problem, whose complexity matches educational objectives and the amount of time available.
  • handle the engineer sciences and use them. He can analyse mathematically and in a computer way a problem and he modelize it;
  • can use innovative methods to solve problems
  • detect and use the different methods of problems resolution
  • Innovate, conduct research and conceive scientific and technical solutions allowing him to define products, systems and services
  • use conception and modelling methodology and can see their limit;
  • can choose, apply and adapt them;
  • collect and interpret data and scientific relevant information, including in unfamiliar environment;
  • can do scientific reseraches and appropriate experimentations lonely or in group;
  • conceptualize models, systems and process in a real way;
  • Can identify, classify and describe the products performance, systems and services by analyse or modelling methods;
  • can conceive projects corresponding to exigeances or specifications totally define or not, eventually complex, unfamiliar, in uncertain environment or with uncomplete information;
  • cooperate with the world of researcher and engineer of the speciality or not;
  • show critical mind and creativity to developp original and new ideas (technic, methodological or comercial innovation) and new technology;
  • Find scientific and technologic solutions;
  • can use the theory and practice to solve engineering problems and offer trustworthy solutions;
  • differentiate lots of equipment: their characteristics, use and limits;
  • differentiate methods and process;
  • assure a conform achievement;
  • Confirm his works by a well-focused choose of tests;
  • Estimate the cost
  • Organize his work and can work with autonomy
  • integrate an organization, understand the different roles and have a team spirit;
  • communicate effectively, correctly and diversified with the engineering community and a large public (information, works, results).
