Marseille, Rome, Wroclaw

Overview

The CNE program is a joint master program in Chemical Nanoengineeringoffered by three European universities:

  • Aix-Marseille University (France)
  • Tor Vergata University of Rome (Italy)
  • Wroclaw University of science and Technology (Poland)

Chemistry for Nanoengineering is an innovative field of science and technology which is developing very fast. The 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry shows the importance of the research in this area. It has shown that engineering of the Nanomachines is not any more a science-fiction; it is just a beginning of new engineering specialty where the Nano-systems can be numerically designed and chemically synthesized. These new technologies will create a large demand for specialists in this field.

All courses are taught in English, so proficiency in English is required. Two of the Partners are engineering Universities (PL and IT), which is important for the program goals towards excellence in nano-engineering innovation. The third partner (FR) has a strong chemical nano-science profile which will allows us to teach our students the chemical fundamentals during the first semester in Marseille.

A master about Chemistry and Engineering

This Master Course offers an original program in the highly innovative domain. Skills will be acquired at the strongly interdisciplinary level needed to master emerging Nano-technologies and to develop original concepts and applications aiming at novel engineering breakthroughs in many domains; biomedical nanotechnologies, nanomaterials or applications for environment.

The originality of our program is that it deepens the principles of chemistry and engineering with a special orientation in the field of nanotechnology and a strong address to the industrial reality. Another originality of our program is based on the extensively developed courses dealing with the numerical design and engineering applications of Nano-systems.

Our program is aimed at methodologies applied to Nanoengineering, application-oriented and specifically focused on chemical synthesis and characterization. It aims at the methodology of bottom-up designing of Nano-systems using modelling and chemical synthesis at the Nanoscale.

 

 

The first year of studies (Marseille, then Wroclaw) is common for all students. The First semester of the second year (Rome) allows the students to choose between two options: experimantal one and numerical one.

The Master thesis research project (30 ects, Marseille, Wroclaw, Rome or one of the Partner Institution) is intended to bring the student in close contact with a multinational and multidisciplinary research environment of a research institute in academia or in industry. The student can choose among the list of proposed relevant research project and work in close collaboration with other researchers. The research project is finalized with a public presentation of a Master’s Thesis in Marseille in Spetember.  The Master Thesis project is evaluated by an external international jury.
