Master Sciences et génie des matériaux

Parcours Engineering of functional materials

Présentation et objectifs

This master program is offered within Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP) Phelma. Additionally, it can be followed partly within the framework of international masters in partnership with other European universities. These master programs have dedicated admission procedures:

  • Master FAME+ (Functional advanced materials enginering)
  • Master AMIS (Advanced materials for innovation and sustainability)

This course, entirely in English, has a specific registration fee of 5 000 € / year.

This master program aims at educating researchers for industry and academia in all sectors of materials engineering (structural and functional materials). In the framework of the Engineering school Phelma of Grenoble Institute of Technology, it delivers a high-level curriculum on the fundamentals of materials science and on applied materials engineering. The two second-year programs offer specialization respectively in the area of microelectronics and microsystems, in relation with the very active industrial sector in this area in Grenoble, and in the area of materials for nuclear engineering, in relation with the largest French industrial actors.
The master diploma can lead to a career in industry or to continuation with a PhD. Many PhD opportunities are offered in the many labs of the Grenoble area.


Elaboration of materials / Electrochemical and physicochemical characterization methods / Unit separation operations / Exchange of matter and heat / Experimental design / Simulation and modeling of electrochemical processes / Electrochemical and electrocatalytic kinetics / Electrochemistry of materials and materials for electrochemistry (semiconductor, metals, oxides....)

Dimension internationale :

Formation tournée vers l’international

This international course serves as a host structure for the FAME master (Functional advanced materials engineering), which is an Erasmus Mundus-type master in partnership with other European institutions.

In this context, the course welcomes both 1st year FAME master students, who then go to one of the other establishments in the network for their 2nd year, and 2nd year master students, who completed their 1st year in Germany. as part of FAME. In addition, this course is open to Grenoble INP in the 1st and 2nd years under the same conditions as for students of the Erasmus Mundus master's degree, as well as in a double course for students of Grenoble INP Phelma.

Établissement(s) co-accrédité(s)

Stages, projets et missions

Internships during the master can be made both in academic labs or in industry. In the latter case, the subject of the internship needs to be validated by the master’s responsible to ensure the research component of the work.



Condition d'accès

Admission is possible after a curriculum in the fields of materials chemistry, physical chemistry, process engineering and electrochemistry. Admission is made at level master  (after validation of a license 3) or at level master 2nd year (after validation of an master 1st year).
