The master Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies offers a high-level program to understand, design, elaborate and implement materials and nanomaterials in highly innovative domains such as nano-engineering, nanoelectronics, energy or health, using disciplinary knowledge and tools of physics, chemistry and physico-chemistry of materials.

The objective of the Master is to train young graduates to acquire skills to find innovative solutions for solving complex problems related to the development of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies in various contexts (research, development, production or training).

 Career opportunities

Graduates will have the choice of applying, in France and abroad, for Ph.D. programs with the opportunity of a partnership academic Lab/Industry or working as scientist or engineer in industry (R&D, project management, quality control, production, consulting, …).


Three programs, directed by the departements of Physics and Chemistry, are proposed :

   1. Nanoscale and Quantum Engineering

  • M1 : courses in french ; M2 : courses in english
  • Campuses Saint-Jérôme, Château Gombert and Luminy (Aix Marseille Université) and "Ecole des mines de Gardanne" (near Marseille)

   2. Engineering of Materials and Nanotechnologie

  • M1 and M2 : courses in french
  • Campus Saint-Jérôme (Aix Marseille Université)

   3. Chemical NanoEngineering (international – Erasmus Mundus)

  • M1 and M2 : courses in english
  • Semester 1 : campus Saint-Jérôme (Aix Marseille Université)
  • Semesters 2, 3 et 4 : Wroclaw (Poland), Rome (Italy), Marseille (France)

 Admission Requirements

M1 : Bachelor of Science in Physics, Chemistry, Physics-Chemistry, Engineering Science or equivalent Bachelor’s degree.

M2 : 1st year of a master or a 2nd year of engineering school with skills in Physics or Chemistry of Materials.
