Mention Chemistry: L1 in the PCSI Portal (Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Sciences)

The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is an initial generalist course, organised in different tracks, with a specialisation from the L3 level. The objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry are to offer a generalist education, allowing the acquisition of fundamental theoretical and experimental knowledge in Chemistry: general, inorganic, organic, macromolecular, spectroscopic, analytical, with a progressive specialisation in L3 towards the fields of the chemistry of life or the chemistry of materials. The Chemical Sciences of the Living World (L3 SCV) is a course more oriented towards organic chemistry with an opening towards biomolecular chemistry and the corresponding masters. This multidisciplinary course directs students towards the biomolecules, drugs, cosmetics, perfumes and aromas sector. The Chemical Sciences of Matter course (L3 SCM) is a solid generalist course in inorganic chemistry, solid state chemistry and general and macromolecular chemistry. This course directs students towards the materials and polymer sectors with applications in the fields of nanoscience, coatings, energy and sustainable development.

Two other more specific courses are attached to the chemistry degree: 

The L3 Prepa DNO course is a course in the Chemistry degree intended for students who want to acquire the "L3 es sciences" required to enter oenology schools.

The Pre-PAC Perfumes and Cosmetics course (L2 PréPAC) is only accessible under certain conditions (limited number of places). It is a course that allows students to enter the PAC "Perfumes, Flavours and Cosmetics" professional licence in L3.

The objectives of the chemistry degree are therefore multiple:

✓ To provide the student with the knowledge, skills and know-how necessary for further study in all Master's degree courses in chemistry, but also in Master's degree courses in biology and health and in DNO preparation courses.

✓ To enable students to continue their studies by entering an engineering school (on title).

✓ Enable some students to continue in a short professionalizing course: integration Licence Pro.

✓Permit direct professional integration after L3: administrative competitions, technicians.

Know-how and skills

The main aim of the Bachelor of Chemistry is to give students a solid basic scientific training in the field of chemistry so that they have sufficient knowledge to continue their studies in a Master's degree or to enter working life and to be able to adapt to the evolution of the professions in chemistry.

General scientific skills:

- Master basic laboratory experimentation techniques.

Be able to develop an experimental strategy to address a chemical problem.

- Know how to use and adapt analysis and data processing tools in the various fields of chemistry.

be able to appropriate the tools of study in chemistry including modelling and statistical tools.

be able to read and criticize scientific texts in English - be able to search for and gather information and verify it (bibliographic research in relation to a scientific theme)

Cross-cutting competences:

- Be able to organise their work according to an experimental protocol.

be able to adopt a multidisciplinary approach (interface with biology, physics, etc.)

mastery of written and oral presentations and reports (tutored projects and practical work)

work in pairs or teams (tutored projects and practical work)

-understanding of written and spoken English.

mastery of basic computer tools.
