Materials Science specialization

Career opportunities


Graduate engineers from this school have a very good knowledge of materials and of instrumentation.

They can choose from a wide range of job opportunities in production, R&D, studies, quality control, recycling and environment, marketing, commerce, buying.

They can work in all industrial sectors: metallurgy, chemistry, nuclear, new materials and biomaterials, railway, automobile, marine and nautical, aeronautics and space, glass, ceramics, composites, analysis laboratories, polymers (paint, glue, detergents, etc.).



This course requires a very good level of physics and chemistry.
