The students in the IntREE graduate school will acquire a solid background in various topics, ranging from fundamental to applied sciences. The GS-program is designed to include hands-on laboratory experiences during the two years of Master to strengthen the student’s capability to learn actively, think independently, and work in team. The students will also be exposed to the latest developments in industrial R&D through courses given by industrial partners and internships.
The IntREE students will be enrolled into appropriate Master which ensure the fundamental teachings used within their disciplines (named “CORE” courses). In addition specific common courses will be delivered by researcher or industrial partners.
This course aims to develop a unified framework for understanding the multifaceted aspects of atomic force microscopy.
Introduction to Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) – Tip surface interactions (Van der Waals, Coulomb force…) – AFM instrumentation Imaging surfaces in contact mode – Imaging surfaces in dynamic modes (non-contact, tapping, peak force…) – Operating environments – Local properties determination (mechanical, magnetic, electric properties…) – Force spectroscopy-single molecules interactions – Image analysis and filtering – Practices
In addition to their diploma/degree, the students will receive the GS-IntREE label certification attesting to the excellence of research-based training in the area of « Interfaces ».
The associated Master (see the list below) offer to « top » students a IntREE-track. The following diagram provides a simplified overview of the education schematic.
The students will spent about 3 days a week on their research training in their chosen field of research. This first project starts in october and runs until the end of the semester S1 (training report, oral/poster presentation).
The ojectives are to introduce the GS-students to research methodologies by :
Read key publications
Develop a network of colleagues,
Learn the basic experimental and simulation techniques,
These are IntREE-specific courses, therefore attended by all registered students. They are:
Somes examples : Electron-matter intearction, numerical methods, numerical simulation at the atomic scale, Radiation-matter interaction, topographic and mechanical characterization of surfaces and interfaces: atomic force microscopy and nanoindentation
Soft skills courses
English (for non-native English language and/or french), Professional word, Quality …
The master offers three specialities on fundamental knowledge and aims to provide a high level of expertise in the fields of structures, thermal science, aerodynamics or energetics; on Aeronautical Mechanics and Energetics which aims to train students at a high level of expertise in energetics and materials applied in aerospace propulsion and the third provides skills in theory, modelisation, simulation and experimentation of turbulent flows and their coupling with other phenomena.
The Master of chemistry offers a wide variety of courses to teach the necessary skills and knowledge to be a modern chemist across the following fields: analytical chemistry, green chemistry and catalysis, organic chemistry, water chemistry, materials chemistry and physics. Interfaces science is essential to understand/control many chemical reactions (catalysed or not) or perform physical or chemical analyses.
“International master in clay science” which provides skills on characterization, properties of finely divided minerals with applications in environmental issues, mineral and energetic resources, geomaterials, eco and nanomaterials. Both specializations develop integrative approaches based on multidisciplinary knowledges including naturalist, physico-chemical and modeling skills.
The master aims to train specialists in the field of renewable energy who will be able to design energy management systems and to optimize the energy efficiency of industrial systems. This multidisciplinary training is composed of three approaches: a theoretical approach allowing the understanding of the involved physical phenomena, a technological approach describing the functioning of industrial systems, and an approach based on multiphysical numerical simulations.
The Master in Mechanical Engineering is based on the product development and design. It offers multidisciplinary basic courses, as vibrations, structure and materials design, and also particular courses in bio-engineering, optical measurement methods, tribology and robotics.
The master aims to train students at high level in solid state physics and materials. It is based on fundamental and thematic courses in physics, to provide the students the needed expertise to approach the major issues related to the properties, the characterization and the synthesis of materials, in connection with the physical mechanisms involved.
