Program outline

The aim of this Master program is to provide students with a complete training in the domain of chemistry and physical chemistry of materials, starting from the stage of conception, synthesis and elaboration, to physico-chemical characterizations, and their use for specific functions and applications.

The studied materials are very diverse (inorganic materials, polymers, colloidal materials, hybrids, composites etc…) and draw upon the main research fields studied within the laboratories of the University of Bordeaux.

Thanks to the partnership with the University of Cincinnati (USA), a double Master degree is awarded to selected students. These students spend the first year of the Master program at the University of Cincinnati (for more information, consult the UC website).

Program structure

All teaching modules (Master Year 1 and 2) are open to non-francophone students.
