International Master in Advanced Clay Science (IMACS)

University of Poitiers
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 France Poitiers

IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science. [+]

Best Masters in Materials Science in France 2017. ENVIRONMENTS- ECONOMIC GEOLOGY-SOIL MANAGEMENT-GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING-GEOMATERIAL-NANOMATERIAL IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science : the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil. Why clay minerals ? Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest. In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology, because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials. Clay knowledge is extremely inter- and multidisciplinary as it includes geological, geotechnical, mineralogical, physico-chemical and bio-geochemical aspects. The IMACS is the first master course addressing... [-]

Master of Nanoscale Engineering

Nanoscale objects exhibit many novel and extraordinary properties that are not found in their macroscopic counterparts. The ability to control matter at the nanoscale will therefore benefit all branches of engineering in the next decades, and well-known devices will acquire new features due to manufacturing processes that integrate nano-scale structures. Moreover, nanoscale engineering embodies the convergence of physics, electronics, life sciences and chemistry, and as such it provides ample opportunities to master the challenges of the future in fields as diverse as healthcare, sustainable development, energy efficiency, and many more.

The Master of Nanoscale Engineering offers you the opportunity to explore this challenging field in a stimulating scientific and cultural environment. The program is dedicated to a multidisciplinary and international approach and it is suited equally well for students planning an academic or an industrial career. The two-year curriculum provides both the theoretical basis and the practical expertise in all fields related to the fabrication, the characterization and the design of nanoscale structures and systems....
