Materials Science

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

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.

International Master in Advanced Clay Science (IMACS)

University of Poitiers
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 France Poitiers

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

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.... [-]
