This Physical-Chemistry and Chemical-Physics (PCCP) programme from the University of Bordeaux focuses on the fundamental aspects of physical chemistry and then leads on to specialized topics so that graduates may be integrated within both academic and industrial fields.


The Physical-Chemistry and Chemical-Physics (PCCP) programme from the University of Bordeaux aims to integrate Master students within academic and industrial fields of fundamental physical chemistry. 

Various aspects are concerned: study of matter and its transformations, analysis and control of physical and chemical processes, light-matter interactions and spectroscopy techniques, modelling of physical and chemical processes from molecular to macroscopic scale. 

Applications cover scientific fields ranging from nanotechnologies, photonics, optoelectronics and organic electronics, to environmental sensors and detection systems

The PCCP Master is supported by high-level educational and research partners, represented by the consortium of universities engaged in the program. Students follow their courses within a challenging, international environment. Annual summer schools, organized by the consortium partners, complete the students’ training by offering a focus on several topics relative to PCCP.
