School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & Materials
|Degree awarded : Master||Location : GRENOBLE Scientific Polygon||
Available as :
|Graduation year : Bac + 5|
|Graduation level : Level 7|
|Duration : 3 years (6 semesters)|
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.
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.
To be admitted into Year 1 (at two years of post-secondary study), students must have completed two years of preparatory courses (science-track or Institute of Technology common preparatory program) or have earned an undergraduate degree from a university (in France, mainly DUT or L2).
This program is open to exchange students from abroad (courses in French).
A bachelor's degree in Physics, Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering is recommended.
Visit the Admissions section of the school’s website (French version).
2 tracks are available within the 1st year and lead to a Bachelor of Engineering science.
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.
Students in this major benefit from many agreements between Grenoble Institute of Technology and partners around the globe in the form of exchange programs, dual-degree programs, internships, and more.
