The first year of the master's program is a focused on Chemistry and whose objective is to enable students:
• to acquire solid basic knowledge and know-how in chemistry by strengthening the notions studied during their bachelor's program semester
• to define their professional project by providing them with cross-disciplinary and prevocational knowledge and skills.
The first year of the master's program Chemistry - International Track includes an internship that provides a first research experience in top-level scientific groups, and gives a large priority to lab trainings on up-to-date equipments and platforms. In addition to specific modules of this master's program, some of which are available to other students and will favor intercultural exchange.
