Third year accessible after 2 years of general training in the field of chemistry, E-applicant application.
Benefits of the program
The Degree addresses the different fields of chemistry and offers students the opportunity to choose any specialization after. Students choose a subsidiary in physics, mechanics or 3EA (6 ECTS per semester), based on their personal professional project and training. The 3rd year of the Degree comprises, during the first semester, a TU introducing digital methods on computer and, during the second semester, a chemistry project TU where students, working in pairs, carry out a theoretical, digital and/or experimental personal study. In the second semester, depending on the project, students may choose an option focusing on materials, another based on sensors or in-company placement (or in a research laboratory).
Acquiring sound general scientific training on theoretical, experimental and digital levels; Ability to solve theoretical problems in the field of chemistry and its applications (materials, energy, environment); Ability to roll out an experimental approach; Ability to collect, manage and present results; Ability to explain and present, orally and in writing, a project approach, knowledge brought into play, results obtained.

Your future career
Most students pursue their studies with a Master's or enrol in an engineering school. This Degree, in particular, offers access to Master's in Chemistry, in Risks and Environment and in Material Engineering and Sciences at UPEM. It also leads to Master's in Chemistry in other universities and to generalist engineering schools.
A 2-year multidisciplinary university programme in Physics and Chemistry which students may pursue with a specialization in the 3rd year in Chemistry provides a wide range of fields for pursuing studies with a Master's or in an engineering school
Introduction to chemical analysis, preparing samples, statistics and measures, spectroscopic techniques (spectrophotometry, spectrofluorometry, atomic absorption spectroscopy, atomic emission spectrometry).
The aims of this module are (i) to understand what a chemical analysis process is and how it fits into a scientific approach; (ii) to understand the importance of preparing samples for validating an analysis; (iii) to understand how devices work and their scope of application.
Chromatographic methods (principles of chromatography, HPLC, GC, Ion chromatography), mass spectrometry, visit to a laboratory.
The aims of this module are (i) to understand how and when chromatography analysis techniques are used; (ii) to know how each device works in theory and in practice (HPLC, GC) as well as the detectors used.
Introduction to solid-state chemistry: methods for preparing solids; structure of metallic, atomic and molecular edifices; x-ray diffraction, Miller index; defects in solids, alloys; metallic bond; metal and semi-conductor conductivity application; lenses.
Quantum description of the atom. Quantum spectroscopy bases. Spectroscopic terms. Notions of group theory. Fermi's golden rule. Application for atomic spectroscopy and microwave molecular spectroscopy, IR and UV.
Undertaking a chemistry project in pairs or in small groups, implementing the theoretical concepts and skills acquired during the Degree. This leads to a written report and oral presentation in front of a jury.
