Overview

  • Engineer

    National Master of Engineering Degree
  • Degree awarded : MasterLocation : GRENOBLE

    Available as :

    • Standard taught course
    • Lifelong learning
    Graduation year : Bac + 5
    Graduation level : Level I
    Duration : 3 years (6 semesters)

Summary

In the domains associated with this specialization program, students will acquire the skills necessary for forming, shaping and combining materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, composites), and for understanding the relationships between material microstructure and their physical, physicochemical and mechanical properties and to analyze the materials lifecycle and degradation process. Through several projects they will acquire materials characterization skills on the macro, meso and nano levels and the ability to model phenomena and microstructures at the appropriate level for the materials and problems concerned.

Objectives

[legende-image]1383921775799[/legende-image]Students will be able to design and manufacture new materials in the context of sustainable development so as to respond to contemporary industrial and social requirements.
The program is composed of a main core and 2 elective specialties: Structural Materials and Materials Science for Microtechnology and Energy Engineering.
Following the main core of Materials physical chemistry in the third semester, students choose one of the specialties for the fourth and fifth semesters. The fifth semester includes applied projects common to both specialties.

Specificities

Students can also choose to do a second Master year (semesters 9 and 10) and the Materials Science for Nuclear Engineering semester.

Program

  • Course duration : 3 years (6 semesters)

Program

The first year


2 tracks are available within the 1st year and lead to a Bachelor of Engineering science.




The second year





The third year



Semester 9 can be completed in one of two cross-disciplinary programs that concern all majors:
> IPEM Industrial Processes & Environmental Management
> MANINTEC Management, Innovation, Technologies


Semester 10

Master thesis (30 ECTS credits)

The final semester of the Grenoble INP-Phelma engineering course is exclusively dedicated to the End of Studies Project.

This occurs from February to June, either overseas or in France, in a research laboratory or in industry. This allows students to use the methods and knowledge they have acquired in a professional environment. They will experience engineering working methods, learn how to manage a project and develop their autonomy and initiative.

The End of Studies Project also develops their sense of responsibility by submitting them to a demand for results within a pre-determined time frame. The student engineer is required to produce a report and take a viva on their project.

Laboratories directly involved: SIMAP, 3S-R et LEPMI




Board of examiners

Each semester is worth 30 ECTS credits, spread out over the different courses completed. Students must obtain a grade of at least 10/20 in each course to obtain the credits.
