A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

The field of materials science combines disciplines, including engineering, chemistry, biochemistry and other technologies, in order to research and develop new materials for use in manufacturing. This growing field prepares students to work towards solving problems on a global scale as natural resources become threatened.

France, officially the French Republic, is a unitary semi-presidential republic located mostly in Western Europe, with several overseas regions and territories.

ITECH engineers distinguish themselves from those of other chemistry schools through advances in the manufacturing of plastic materials, on top of fundamental knowledge. ITECH plastic manufacturing engineers complement their specialty with aspects of the other majors: coating different plastic materials (Formulation Chemistry); composite materials used in transport, sports and leisure, and geo-textiles (Textile Materials). From hygiene to aeronautics, automotive to sports, many sectors make use of plastic manufacturing engineers who can work as much with raw material suppliers, as with “formulators”.

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 an 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.... [-]

The Challenge

Materials are the building blocks of the modern global economy and are instrumental for the transition to a green, circular economy which emits less CO2. Twenty-seven of these materials have been defined by the EU as critical, meaning that they combine high importance to the EU economy with a high risk associated with their supply. Accessing the known primary raw material sources has become more challenging, while the amounts of industrial waste and end-of-life-products are rapidly increasing. These waste streams contain secondary raw materials, many of which are critical and can be recovered, diversifying supply and contributing to meeting increasing materials demands.
