The programme is open to international students. All teaching is in English.

Two closely interconnected fields are addressed in the nanochemistry programme: construction of nano-objects and nanosystems (bottom-up approach), molecular recognition and intermolecular forces, activation and control of molecules and assemblies, surface functionalisation and transducers; characterisation of molecular assemblies, objects, materials and devices using the main physical analytical methods.

The programme is structured as follows:

  • a foundation programme of 27 ECTS (15 credits in M1, 12 in M2, 2 x 3 ECTS in a modern language) giving precedence to training through experimentation on dedicated platforms
  • specific modules in nanochemistry (30 ECTS over M1 and M2)
  • elective modules for more in-depth study and leading on to other nanoscience disciplines (33 ECTS)
  • two internships in a research laboratory: of 8 months in M1 and 5 months in M2 (30 ECTS)

The main aim of this programme is to train managers with solid scientific and technical skills in the field of nanomaterials, by providing a comprehensive vision covering the development and characterisation of physical, mechanical, chemical and biological properties, and applications for a wide variety of nanomaterials and nano-objects.

 This research programme offers two main career opportunities:

  • doctoral studies in nanosciences and chemistry of materials, either in France or abroad, with a view to pursuing a career as teacher-researcher in a university, or researcher in a large public organisation (CNRS, CEA, etc.);
  • engineer within a company or organisation in the chemistry or materials sector.

International dimension :

Internationally-oriented programmes, Double degrees, joint degrees, Erasmus Mundus

Grenoble is a world-renowned competitiveness cluster in the field of nanotechnologies. Students are exposed to the international dimension of nanosciences and nanotechnologies, through international partnerships with universities and collaborations with numerous laboratories. Internships abroad are possible and actively encouraged. This programme is part of the Erasmus+ Mundus Master (EMM) consortium in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. The EMM Nano students join the nanochemistry programme in the second year

 For candidates whose country of residence is not included in the "Studies in France" portal (PEF) scheme, the calendar for the eCandidat application campaigns is available here.

Public continuing education:

You are in charge of continuing education:

  •      if you resume your studies after 2 years of interruption of studies,
  •      or if you followed a formation under the regime formation continues one of the 2 preceding years
  •      or if you are an employee, job seeker, self-employed.

If you do not have the diploma required to integrate the training, you can undertake a validation of personal and professional achievements (VAPP).
