The advantages of the course

The PC degree is a generalist degree in Material Sciences based on both Physics and Chemistry. The knowledge base it provides is sufficiently solid and broad for students to be able to pursue a Master's degree in MEEF, research masters or engineering schools. Thus, the Physics and Chemistry degree provides much more than a double skill. It opens up a whole range of disciplines at the interfaces of these two sciences, but also at the interfaces of many others that are at the heart of today's major societal concerns: biology, earth and environmental sciences, applied mathematics and computer science.
