M2 Materials Engineering: Development, Characterization, Applications (MEDCA)

Presentation

Presentation

 

 

MEDCA (Materials Engineering Development, Characterization, Application) graduates will  attend theoretical and practical physics-oriented courses on materials that will include Life cycle assessment (recycling) and the environmental impact(eco-designing). They will then acquire skills in the fields of polymers,composites, nanomaterials, metallic materials and ceramics, 

 

Objectives

The MEDCA course objectives are: 

  • To give students Mastery of the characterization concepts and techniques of Materials Engineering with a view to training general managers in this industrial sector.
  • To help students acquire skills in the fields of polymers,composites, nanomaterials, metallic materials and ceramics,

Knowledge and skills

At the end of this program, the students in the "M2 Materials Engineering: Development, Characterization, Applications (MEDCA)" will be able to:

  • Participate in the development and implementation of various materials (polymers,composite materials, elastomers, nanocomposites, nanomaterials) for the development of products or prototypes via 3D printing.
  • Analyse material transformation techniques or processes in order to to optimize the production tool.
  • Carry out qualification and quality control tests to participate in the overall effort to improve the quality of production.
  • Write reports, projects, technical reports.
  • Carry out expertise missions on existing products in order to identify by example the origin of the degradation of parts under industrial operating conditions.

Expenses

Regarding national administrative university enrollment fees: the French Ministerial Order of April 19, 2019, amended on June 9, 2020, sets the annual tuition for extra-European students enrolling in a Master program at €3770.

For the academic year 2021-2022, conditions and procedures for requesting partial reduction of these fees will be updated in February 2021, once the newly elected board and councils of the UPPA is in place and deliberates about this question.

Candidates who have taken a break of more than two years from their studies are not subject to paying the CVEC, however they need to contact the UPPA’s Continuing Education service (formation continue) in order to request a personalized quote regarding their tuition.
