Master - Green Cap
This Master focuses on the area of the conversion of renewable resources by chemical or biochemical reactions or by physical processes; the courses deal with the knowledge of vegetable raw materials, the set up of the chemical reaction and its catalysis, the operation of the biological reaction (enzymatic or fermentation) and the separation processes that result. The approach integrates practices in green chemistry and clean processes involving innovating technologies, which take into account environmental impacts.
• Semester 1 (M1):
Scientific bases, cultural integration, linguistic and methodology (transition semester n+i in chemistry): modular training in physical chemistry, organic and inorganic chemistry, engineering sciences + beginning of the tutorial project.
• Semester 2 (M1):
Green chemistry and biotechnologies for clean processes + tutorial project continued.
• Semester 3 (M2):
Fractionation of vegetable feedstocks, bioconversion and chemical transformation from biomass for the development of bioproducts, methodology of ecodesign + tutorial project
• Semester 4 (M2) :
Graduation internship (5-6 months) in academic laboratories or in Industry
The program represents a specialization dedicated to the development of safe and sustainable processes from renewable raw materials, for industrial applications. The placement opportunities are mainly in the areas of research and development, production, engineering, consulting or environmental assessment.
This international Master is a joint program with ENSIACET engineering school, member of the National Polytechnic institute of Toulouse (INPT)
