Masters Degree in Materials and Surface Engineering

This masters is implemented in partnership with the Arts et Métiers Paristech (French engineering and research graduate school) in Lille. 

  

A multi-disciplinary approach enables access to positions in research and development in major corporate or industrial groups such as CEA, EDF, Renault, AREVA, APERAM… 

More than a third of students continue their studies with a doctoral thesis, generally through a CIFRE contract (French Industrial Research Training Agreement), with one of the above businesses. 

  

Examples of areas of application: 

 

Structural materials: thermomechanical and surface treatments of these materials improve performance, resistance to corrosion or wear and durability, whilst lightening these structures. 

Composite materials and multi-material structures: for example, those used in the automotive industry to lighten structures whilst maintaining their rigidity.  

Functionally graded materials: improve mechanical parts, specifically in the most loaded areas, and identify optimal solutions from an economical, reductive and mechanical perspective.  

Materials with a specific, functional surface area: with an aim to minimise or maximise friction, lustre, dimensional tolerance, development of hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces, resistance to contact fatigue… 

Coated materials: painting, galvanisation, chrome plating, nickel plating, plasma spraying, PVD, CVD… 

Biomaterials: bone-biomaterial interface, interface biocompatibility, cell adhesion, biointegration, wear and tear and breaking down of particles, biocorrosion, degeneration of biomaterials for the development of orthopaedic prostheses … 

Materials for food products: bioneutrality, resistance to shock and extreme temperatures, adhesion, cleaning and ageing… 

 

Industrial partners

Eurocopter, PSA, EDF, CEA, Safran, EADS, AREVA, BODYCOTE, ECM, SECO Tools, Delphi, Air Liquide, Total, ASCO-Forge, APERAM…
