Prerequisites for admission
Basic knowledge of mathematical analysis: study of functions, differentiation of functions and integral calculus.
Assessment methods and Criteria
A written exam for admission to the oral exam is foreseen: 5 exercises on the exam program (1 kinematics, 1 dynamics, 1 fluid mechanics, 1 thermodynamics, 1 electromagnetism).
Each exercise done correctly is assigned a score of 6/30.
For passing the written test and admission to the oral test the minimum required is 18/30.
Oral exam (duration 40 minutes).
