  • Materials and society
  • From atoms to materials
  • Material's microstructures
  • Material's properties
  • Material processing
  • Different lengthscales : characterization and modelling approaches
  • Application focus : domains of transportation, microelectronics, new energies, nuclear power

The idea is to take an object from everyday's life, and to determine why it has been made of specific materials, how it has been processed, what are the functions it nees to respond. This work is made by groupes of 3 or 4.
