Study, design or research engineer in the defense, aerospace or automotive sectors; risk management.
• Shock waves and detonation
• Digital methods
Alongside this major, students can pursue the Master in Engineering Science jointly offered by ENSMA and the University of Poitiers, majoring in Aeronautic and Land Transport and opting for the Combustion specialization track .
The Pyrotechnic Systems major prepares graduates for jobs in the defense, aerospace, ICST and automotive sectors, pyrotechnic device development and industrial risk prevention.
An on-campus research team at the IRDL (Institut de Recherche Dupuy De Lôme) lab studies the effects of pyrotechnic phenomena and their reactions in various environments (reduction of underwater explosion impacts by bubble curtains, or attenuation of a shock wave by aqueous foam, for example). The campus is equipped with ample testing equipment, such as Split-Hopkinson pressure bars, shock tubes, a Taylor gun, etc.
ENSTA Bretagne is the only school in France to deliver pyrotechnic training that covers the full range of energetic materials and propulsion system design.
A multidisciplinary training program, from designing mobile robots to testing them for use in specific missions.
The disciplines studied are :
- Automation (designing control laws),
- IT (algorithms, languages, middlewares),
- Perception (vision, machine learning),
- Artificial Intelligence (Prolog, logic),
- Modeling/Simulation (realistic computer-based robot simulation through virtual and augmented reality),
- Navigation (observers, Kalman filters, interval analysis),
- Mechanics (3D printers, digital mockups),
- Guidance (path planning, avoiding obstacles, coordination)
- Experiments (preparing and conducting field experiments involving robots).
Engineers graduating from this major are able to design propulsion systems and pyromechanisms for aerospace or military applications. They are also able to study the reactions of structures undergoing dynamic stresses such as impacts and explosions.
