E2S UPPA Talents Academy Grants:
This scholarship program of excellence is aimed at outstanding students coming primarily from Europe and America.
Further information will be provided during the application procedure.
MEDCA (Materials Engineering Development, Characterization, Application) graduates will attend theoretical and practical physics-oriented courses on materials that will include Life cycle assessment (recycling) and the environmental impact(eco-designing). They will then acquire skills in the fields of polymers, composites, nanomaterials, metallic materials, and ceramics.
The MEDCA course objectives are:
To give students Mastery of the characterization concepts and techniques of Materials Engineering with a view to training general managers in this industrial sector.
To help students acquire skills in the fields of polymers, composites, nanomaterials, metallic materials, and ceramics.
Knowledge and skills
At the end of this program, the students in the "M2 Materials Science and Engineering: Materials Engineering: Development, Characterization, Applications (MEDCA)" will be able to:
Participate in the development and implementation of various materials (polymers, composite materials, elastomers, nanocomposites, nanomaterials) for the development of products or prototypes via 3D printing.
Analyze material transformation techniques or processes in order to optimize the production tool.
Carry out qualification and quality control tests to participate in the overall effort to improve the quality of production.
Write reports, projects, technical reports.
Carry out expertise missions on existing products in order to identify by example the origin of the degradation of parts under industrial operating conditions.
