Master in Materials science and engineering

The programme offers the following course(s)

Presentation

Course co-accredited by the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble (Grenoble INP) and Université Grenoble Alpes

The SGM research Master offers a very diverse course, focusing on both structural (for transport, conversion of energy) and functional materials (for microelectronics in particular). The scientific training covers the essential concepts on development, phenomena governing the genesis of microstructures, and behaviour (mechanical, electronic, surfaces, etc.). Modelling and simulation in materials science, an important theme in the laboratories associated with the training, is also discussed.

The considerable time given to optional courses means that the programme can be adapted to each student's career plan.

The training curriculum contains a series of courses and an internship of at least 5 months providing an introduction to research.

There are employment opportunities in public and private research and in industrial R&D in sectors such as metallurgy, microelectronics, transport, energy conversion and chemistry.

During the M1 year, students follow a foundation programme worth 24 ECTS, which mainly covers the basic tools needed for materials science.

Two standard programmes in French are offered for this specialisation. In accordance with site policy, these courses are offered under the dual course in M2 to students at Grenoble INP-PHELMA on the "Materials Science and Engineering", and "Electrochemistry and Processes" courses.
As such, many elements of the Master are shared with these courses from Grenoble INP-PHELMA. Two international programmes are also offered, with classes in English and individual support for students, in two fields: materials for nuclear energy, and functional materials; in both cases these curricula draw on European networks (KICs, Erasmus Mundus).

Objectives

The SGM specialisation provides courses on the boundary between physics and chemistry in the areas of materials, electrochemistry and the associated processes. The areas covered are essential to industry, which is continually required to respond to new, mainly environmental, challenges (reducing the weight of structural materials, developing new materials for energy production, conversion and storage, packaging and recycling, etc.). This specialisation therefore teaches the methodological and scientific tools graduates will need to take part in research and innovation in these application areas. During the M1 year, students follow a foundation programme worth 24 ECTS, which mainly covers the basic tools needed for materials science. Two standard programmes in French are offered for this specialisation. In accordance with site policy, these courses are offered under the dual course in M2 to students of Grenoble INP-PHELMA in the SIM (Materials Science and Engineering) and EPEE (Electrochemistry and Processes) courses. As such, many elements of the Master are shared with these courses from Grenoble INP-PHELMA. Two international programmes are also offered, with classes in English and individual support for students, in two fields: materials for nuclear energy, and functional materials; in both cases these curricula draw on European networks (KICs, Erasmus Mundus).

Career opportunities for each standard programme: Doctorate in Engineering Sciences, Researcher in a public organisation or in industry - Study and project engineer.
