Master in Materials science and engineering

Engineering of functional materials

Presentation and goals

This internationally oriented course serves as a structure for hosting the FAME (Functional Advanced Materials Engineering) master, an Erasmus Mundus Master in partnership with several other European institutions ( Accordingly, the program hosts both students of the FAME master in 1st year, who then go to one of the network's other institutions for their 2nd year, and students in master 2nd year, who have completed their master 1st year in Germany in the framework of FAME. In addition, this program is available directly at Grenoble INP in teh 2 years under the same conditions as for the students of the Erasmus Mundus master, and as a dual course for students of Grenoble INP-PHELMA.

This program, taught entirely in English, has specific registration fees of €4000 / year.

The aim of this master is to train researchers for industry and academia in the area of advanced functional materials. One of the objectives after the master is for a large number of graduates to go on to doctoral studies (>50%), in particular joint theses between university laboratories and industrial partners (large choice in the Grenoble region).
