It supports academic activities in the following graduate schools :
It supports doctoral researches and hosts PhD doctoral candidates in relationship with the European Doctoral College Lille Nord de France.
With more than two hundreds researchers, LML focuses on the following research area :
Equipment and facilities
The laboratory has heavy investigation equipment in its 3 research areas. These machines include a 20 meters long wind tunnel to study fluid mechanics, a multi-axis tensile test machine, to study mechanical behavior of complex materials and a micro-scale fatigue machine to study material life cycle.
Computations run thanks to a calculation cluster (HPC) composed of 288 cores.
