    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

The objective of the Physical engineering for photonics and microelectronics Specialization is to train engineers and researchers with a high level of expertise in physics and nanotechnology. Such engineers are in high demand in industrial research and development departments in the fields of microelectronics, optical devices and telecommunications and also in public research laboratories (such as CNRS, CEA and universities) for applied physics and theoretical physics.

Specificities


In the 1st year, students study physics fundamentals and physics for nanotechnology and engineering science. In the 2nd year, they choose either an applied specialty (microelectronics, optoelectronics or microwaves) or a theoretical specialty (solid-state physics, particle physics or astrophysics). Practicals and projects make up a large part of the program. The Physics and Nanoscience Specialization is able to draw on the excellence of the local and industrial expertise in this field with guest lecturers frequently providing lessons and seminars.
