Objectifs de la formation

The Master’s degree (Integrated Research for Advanced Chemistry and Materials, IRACM) provides a 2-years program in Chemistry Sciences (organic, inorganic and physical Chemistry) at a high level.

The academic training in the first year provides students with the required basic theoretical and experimental skills for the understanding of matter. By the variety of optional courses that are offered, students can define their own competence profile in four topics (Sustainable Processes and Bioprocesses, Smart Functional Materials, Multiscale Reactivity and Dynamic of ComplexSystems, Advanced Molecular Chemistry and Formulation Science).

Spécificités de la formation

  • High-level educational and research environment, proposed by 7 laboratories of the chemistry department.
  • An interdisciplinary chemistry program at the frontiers of physics, organic, inorganic and materials science
  • 12 months of experimental teaching and laboratory internships during the master’s degree, including international mobility facilitates integration within both academic and industrial domains.
  • Master students acquire project management skills at an international level
  • Possibility of scholarships during the two years (M1&2)
  • A Master degree in a stimulating scientific environment within the graduate program "Sciance for a changing planet"
    • 22 laboratories included in excellence or high level programs
    • 292 PhD students
    • An interdisciplinary training from the master to the doctorate including an international environment, mobility and thematic summer schools.

Compétences visées

Depending on the choice of courses, students will acquire specific skills in connection with the excellence of the academic research laboratories of our department. In addition to mastering the knowledge of one’s specialty area, students have the opportunity to develop skills in Research:

  • Acquiring the experimental skills necessary for laboratory activity
  • Analyze, understand and communicate clearly by mastering the current tools of communication.
  • Connect knowledge from different fields and formulate rigorous reasoning
  • Working independently in setting priorities, managing time and self-evaluating
  • Search and produce a summary note from bibliographical documents
  • Assessing the quality (reliability and validity) of the information and its source

Modalités d'admission/ Conditions d'accès

All students that :

  • have a Bachelor in the field of chemistry or related subjects
  • have a solid background in English
  • have a strong interest to acquire and develop skills in research related to Chemistry

IRACM will be highly selective at entry (up to 15 master students). Some admitted students would be given financial support in the form of scholarships. Depending on your country of origin, you have different modes of application. 

International students must complete the Campus France procedure as soon as possible ( for application to the Master and Student Visa.
