For this interational track, specific fees are applied.
This International Master’s Course in Materials Science and Engineering is a program aimed at pre-paring qualified graduates to deal with contemporary challenges of intellectual and societal importance in the fundamental science of materials and engineering through innovative solutions.
This training is mostly oriented to chemical aspects of material science.
Projects related to materials are proposed at the beginning of the year. Students will have the opportunity to work within a research team in one of about ten laboratories. This activity will cover one semester.
The majority of courses takes place at Ecole Centrale Paris (CentraleSupélec).

Projects and practical works related to materials are proposed at the beginning of the year. Students will have the opportunity to work within a research team in one of about ten laboratories. This activity will cover one semester.
This training is based not only on the research laboratories of the member institutions in the University Paris Saclay, but also on strong industry partnerships through their involvement in many educational aspects. Follow-up will to assist each student in the construction of their professional project throughout the year. Industrial partners are involved in training and in particular in the "project" and "Case Studies".
The aim is to provide international students a high level of training in the field of materials by providing them basic lessons in physics, chemistry and structure of matter. These bases are used to address more specialized courses of the second year. An important part is allowed to the case studies and projects in research teams.
For international students. The selective admission of French students is possible as well.
