The Materials Chemistry and Interfaces Master’s program aims to provide a fundamental understanding of all aspects relating to the development and engineering of materials. Students will enhance their ability to research, design, assess, implement and review solutions to the challenges facing our society across a wide range of materials.
The main applications relate to energy, transport, electronics, medicine, nanotechnologies and health.
The courses are taught by expert academics through formal lecturing and student-led coursework. Students will have access to top-level infrastructure when working on real research projects as part of established research groups.
The Master’s program allows engineers and scientists from a variety of backgrounds (chemistry, chemical engineering, materials or physics) to build on their experience and expertise. It provides strong bases in engineering and sciences that can be transferred to the next stage of their career in academia or industry.Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD ). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies.
After completing the Master’s program students will be able to:
- Start a career as an industrial engineer in fields relating to materials science engineering e.g. energy, electronics, functional materials, advanced ceramics, chemistry, polymers and integrated devices
- Pursue a PhD in a laboratory

During the first year, students build strong expertise in many different fields of chemistry including organic, organometallic, supramolecular, solid state and inorganic.
Strong interdisciplinary background in materials science and, in particular, materials science engineering: functional physical/chemical properties, materials synthesis, nanostructuring and shaping, characterization of structural/microstructural/chemical/physical properties, applications, surface states and engineering
- Experience through practical sessions based on a project and/or learning-by-doing approach - this includes practical training in laboratories
- Complete an internship at one of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris laboratories or with an industrial partner
