Research Master in Physical Chemistry and Materials

Objectives

The Master « Chemistry-Physics of Materials » is aimed to give theoretical knowledge and research of high level in Physical-Chemistry of Condensed Matter. The main objective is theoretical and practical familiarization with the different synthesis techniques of organic and inorganic materials, as well as the different techniques of characterization of these various materials (Composite, energy storage materials, Catalysts, polymers, Semiconductors). This training allows to the students to integrate the world of research and to acquire a necessary scientific mind for the next steps of their curriculum.

Acquired Skills

  • Different methods of materials synthesis
  • Characterization of materials (XRay diffraction, SEM, particle size measurement, catalytic and electrical measurements …)

Admission Conditions

Recruitment: Applications are reviewed by an admission committee. The best candidates are selected after interview

Required Level:

M1 « Physical Chemistry and Materials »

Capacity: between 6 and 9 students according to the number of training

Further Studies / Career Opportunities

The students having achieved the Master degree in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies can integrate firms or make a Doctorate at the Lebanese University (Co-tutelle / Co-direction) or in the foreign universities.
