Master in Electronic and Mechanical Engineering (EME)


Program Description

EME is an international research master degree in Electronic and Mechanical Engineering with specialization in an Electronic program.

This Research Master entitled « Electronic and Mechanical Engineering - Electronic program » (EME) is a one-year study aiming at bringing students, the theoretical background required to be an expert in the field. This research-oriented program is intended to form highly qualified personnel to be active in microelectronic engineering industries. This Research Master is managed by international high-level institutes, Polytech Tours, the GREMAN and the Laboratory of Mechanics and Rheology.

This Masters, taught entirely in English, aims to specialize students in the science and engineering of ceramics, metals, polymers/ elastomers, and composites, with emphasis on a variety of subjects like materials for electronics, biomaterials, nanotechnologies, mechanics, design, numerical modeling, reliability, life cycle analysis, processing and instrumentation, etc.

This program will cater to the needs of both engineering and science majors. Close contacts with the Industry will be provided through off-campus work assignments in the industry (internships) or in an academic lab. Our goal is to produce well-qualified materials scientists and engineers who can function effectively in the technical arena as well as possess the skills to assume leadership roles in industry, academia, and government.

The program's objectives are to produce graduates who are:

  • able to apply the principles of materials science for undertaking advanced engineering and/or research projects.
  • knowledgeable about a variety of engineering materials (including metals, semiconductors, ceramics, polymers, and composites), and the relationships among processing, structure, properties, and performance.
  • able to define and solve problems, especially those involving materials selection and design, and are able to develop, implement and evaluate solutions via integration of their basic scientific skills and knowledge.
  • able to communicate effectively and who demonstrate the ability to function in multi-disciplinary teams.
  • skilled at using modern engineering tools for characterization, analysis, and design of materials.
  • able to understand their responsibility towards their profession and society in a global context

The University of Tours is a decisively European university that has established a campaign of actions within the Europe 2020 strategy, aiming to develop “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”. Tours, the city of the "good life" Tours is a human-sized city . With 300,000 inhabitants, the city of Tours has the characteristic to have 40% of its people having less than 30 years old. The presence of 22,000 François-Rabelais university students is no stranger to this young population, who likes to be at the heart of the "vieux" Tours, place Plumereau. At 55 minutes from Paris by TGV, Tours has also an airport with a daily service to London. City of the "good life", its advantages are many: the sweetness of the Loire river, its many parks and public gardens, sports clubs, cultural and associative structures, its historic heritage. In 2013, the tramway will serve the urban areas of 13 km. Touraine, it is also the land of castles of the Loire: Amboise, Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau, Villandry and its gardens, the Clos Luce, Chinon, Langeais, Loches, Ussé. Names associated with the history of France, with its kings, the Middle Ages to the Renaissance (Louis XI, Charles VIII, François I,), but St. Martin, Leonardo da Vinci, Diane de Poitiers, Catherine de Médicis, Ronsard , Rabelais, Descartes, Balzac, Bergson. A fifty buildings are the cornerstone of Loire Valley tourism, to discover also thanks to routes of the Loire by bike. Touraine, the garden of France, also has a renowned vineyard with wine cellars and restaurants whose cuisine is in the tradition of "Gourmet meal of the French", officially registered since 2010 in the list of intangible cultural heritage of the UNESCO. Already in 2000, UNESCO chose to make the Loire Valley an area of ??major heritage by including over 250 km, as a cultural landscape, alongside the world's largest sites. The attractiveness of Touraine also passes through the dynamism of international tourism, a real estate market, which id new and old, is still doing well. Industrial partnerships established with the university also reinforce its research centers. Read less
