Sciences Technologies Mouvement (Master 2 only)

This specialization aims to train research professionals in the field of human movement. Students who have completed the Research Master's degree are expected to continue their studies in the Doctorate program, which should end with the defense of a University thesis.

After their thesis and usually a post-doctoral internship, students find jobs in higher education, research organizations, as well as in research laboratories or "research and development" structures of private sector companies.

The research master's program offers three courses:

  • Motor Control: Specialization in the processes linking perception and action in the control and learning of perceptual-motor coordinations and the kinematic and dynamic modeling of the human body in motion. 
  • Movement Physiology: Specialization in the physiological mechanisms involved in the production of human movement, their regulation, the influence of environmental factors and the speci city of immediate and long-term responses in different populations.
