Follow a two-year Master programme in Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at University of Picardie Jules Verne within 8 universitiesMESC - Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion that host world-renowned leading research laboratories in the field of Energy-related materials.


What is MESC ?

The MESC - Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion at University of Picardie Jules Verne is designed to provide a 2-year (120 ECTS) education program in Materials Science and Electrochemistry at 8 universities in 6 countries : France (Marseille, Toulouse, Amiens), Poland (Warsaw), Slovenia (Ljubljana), Spain (Bilbao), USA (Philadelphia) and Australia (Geelong). These universities host world-renowned, leading research laboratories in the field of energy-related materials.

For students who join MESC, European or non-European, it is also an opportunity to study in a multicultural environment since our students come from all over the world. That's why classes are taught in English by professors and researchers who interact through several Research networks, surch the Alistore European Research Institute or the French RS2E network.MESC Students have mobilities to a minimum of two and a maximum of four different countries.

The objectives and learning outcomes of the M.E.S.C. EMJMD are the following:

1- Assure an interdisciplinary training in the field of materials for energy storage and conversion, which includes a profound understanding of the chemistry and the methods of synthesis of such materials;

2- Give sound knowledge and practical experience in materials analysis;

3- Apply materials in energy technologies without greenhouse gas emissions, including batteries, hydrogen economy, photovoltaics;

4- Give the students expertise in modelling to predict the chemical and physical properties of energy materials;

5- Prepare the students for a career in the field of materials for energy, by offering them a robust experience in multidisciplinary sciences and engineering;

6- Train highly qualified and creative graduates for the labor market with the capacity to adapt and to find new technological solutions;

7- Educate engineers who can participate in the creation of new high-technology companies in the energy field.
