Master Program Early September: Prerequisite intense training.
These course are mandatory but without any final exams. Lectures cover basic materials in analysis (distribution theory, Sobolev spaces, variational formulations of elliptic equations, Lax-Milgram lemma) and numerics (linear algebra, finite differences, finite elements, programming in Scilab).

Late September - April: Master Courses
A list of courses is available here
Students must successfully complete from five to six courses during this year-long program together with a research internship (3 to 6 months).April- September: Research Internships at Ecole Polytechnique, at partner academic institutions, or in a R&D department in a company.
Students must write a report (equivalent to a Master thesis) and defend it at the end of their internship (any time from late June to September). Some Examples
- Geometry and topology optimization of composite panels (2010) - EADS
- Multiscale numerical schemes for reservoir & CO2 storage simulation (2010) -IFP
- Geometry optimization by mesh deformation (2010) - Renault
- Numerical simulation of clogging in steam generators (2010) - AREVA
