Master's in Chemistry in Europe

Best Masters in Chemistry in Europe 2017

Chemistry

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Chemistry is a category of physical science that deals with the structure, composition, and various properties of matter. Some topics which chemistry aims to cover include the formation of chemical bonds, properties of atoms, and the intermolecular forces responsible for giving matter its unique properties.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Top Master Degrees in Chemistry in Europe 2017. ITECH engineers distinguish themselves from those of other chemistry schools through advances in the manufacturing of plastic materials, on top of fundamental knowledge. ITECH plastic manufacturing engineers complement their speciality with aspects of the other majors: coating different plastic materials (Formulation Chemistry); composite materials used in transport, sports and leisure, and geo-textiles (Textile Materials). From hygiene to aeronautics, automotive to sports, many sectors make use of plastic manufacturing engineers who can work as much with raw material suppliers, as with “formulators”. Admission for Students outside France 1st year admission: Graduate studies in chemistry (Bachelor’s degree or equivalent , 180 ECTS) A satisfying level in English: B2 CERF + interview with ITECH 2nd year admission: 1 year of postgraduate studies completed (M1 or equivalent, 240 ECTS) How to apply? Visit and register at inscription.itech.fr (for EU students) Or Apply through Campus France site (CEF procedures). For countries which do not have CEF procedures with France, you must do an Application for Preliminary Admission (DAP) to the cultural service of the French embassy in your country of residence. Tuition fees Tuition fees are 6 500€/year. Hands on training ITECH is adamant in supplying students with a strong professional experience. On top of a multidisciplinary teaching, the institute adds a 10 month minimum of mandatory internships in companies for the regular status students. End of 1st year: International experience - minimum 6 weeks This international experience is prepared in advance in terms of an intercultural approach and the expectations regarding the content of the report are fully defined. This is an individual review of each student’s experience and acts as a basis for reflection during the intercultural lessons the following term. End of 2nd year: Engineering placement - minimum 8 weeks Practical application with privileged trainee status allows students to come face to face with the realities of corporate life and become acquainted with companies’ material, economic and human requirements. End of 3rd year: Final year project - maximum 6 months This is a project generally entrusted to young engineers. Students demonstrate that they are capable of acting autonomously and tackling complex subjects in situations that can, at times, prove complex. The project involves a minimum 5-month placement with a company or laboratory either in France or abroad. The Region Lyon is located in the south-east of France, on the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. It stands on a geographical crossroads, to the North of the natural corridor of the Rhône valley (which stretches from Lyon to Marseille). With the Lyon-Saint Exupéry international airport and three TGV high-speed train stations, Lyon is connected to all major European cities and the world! Lyon is only 2 hours by TGV to Paris and 1hr40 to Marseille and the Mediterranean. If it's mountains you prefer, the Alps are a mere 90 minutes away by car, the Massif Central only 30 minutes away. Historically, Lyon is an industrial city and therefore houses many petrochemical industries along the Saône and Rhône Rivers, in the so-called ‘chemistry corridor’. Lyon is also the city with the second largest number of students in France, with three universities and many engineering schools. In terms of its population, it’s the 3rd biggest city in France, with over 470,000 inhabitants, and the second largest agglomeration after Paris (2 million inhabitants). [-]
