Course Details

Objectives: Master domain : Science, technology, health : the objective is to train high level technical executives in materials sciences, who can integrate with various industry departments (production, control,.Research and Development.,design office).
The voluntary non-spezialised training is about all classes of materials and nanomaterials (metals,alloys,ceramics, polymers, glasses,composites, nanocomposites).
However there is a privileged place for the domain of the surface treatments, that are very important at a regional level.
The training offers two options, including Materials for aeronautics and space.

Intended for: Students in Materials Sciences in initial training.
Professionals in vocational education.

Degree Level (EU) : 7 - (EQC level or equivalent)

Prerequisites: Knowledges in Materials Sciences, that can have been acquired through different more or less spezialised approaches: Materials chemistery, materials physics,solid-states sciences, mecanics engineering, earth science, ....

Admission requirements: Selective entry on student report.
Students who have the first year of a Master (or equivalent) in materials sciences recognized.

People in vocational education,
