In this Master's program, the discipline “Molecular Chemistry and Physicochemistry” consists of courses displayed in English and opened to international students.
Objectives of the program
The main objective of the M.S. in Chemistry is to meet the expectations of the companies by offering a program with a specialization covering several domains of activity which are recognized as sources of employment: chemical analysis, surface treatments, biomaterials, environmental preservation, modeling, synthesis.
The M.S. in Chemistry aims also to train future specialists highly qualified for laboratories of Doctoral Schools, C2MP (Chemistry, Mechanics, and Molecular Physics), SIMPPE (Science and Engineering of Molecules Products and Energy) and other partner laboratories, with the ambition of an international opening by ensuring to give students a solid linguistic basis and the taste of mobility.
Chemistry of Solids (CdS, in French)
Synthesis, Characterization, Environment (SCE, in French)
Synthesis Modelling Analysis Spectrometry (SAMS, in English)MCP takes place during the second year of Master (third and fourth semesters of the Master (S9 and S10) ), and is opened to students granted after the 1st year of a Master program in Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Physical and Chemical Sciences, Biochemistry, Basic and Applied Sciences, and to engineer-students having finished two years of studies. Applications will be examined by the teaching team. An interview (telephone and/or face-to-face) is often proposed.
Ιn research, analysis, and quality control laboratories of analytical departments or in interaction with a production team in the fields of Chemistry, Materials, Cosmetics, or Medicine.
Research engineer in public or private laboratories
Teacher of Secondary Schools
Teacher researcher of Higher Education (after a Ph.D.)
For the MCP option
Analytical Chemical Physics with spectroscopic dominant but also in molecular modeling
Organic Chemistry, design, synthesis, characterization, and use of organic compounds
Associated skills and know-how
Shared skills for the M.S. in Chemistry:
​Separating and quantifying molecular or mineral elements (in solid, liquid, or gaseous state) and analyze the results by emphasizing the interactions between their properties and structure.
Developing a protocol of chemical analysis
Optimizing a synthesis and analysis by the application of experimental plans
Understanding present and future constraints of the chemical industry (chemical risk prevention, hazardous waste management, life cycle analysis, sustainable development, and green industry)
Specific to the MCP program:
Developing and implementing experimental protocols in Chemistry and Chemical Physics
Opening up new synthetic pathways of original organic molecules
