The LUMOMAT Chemistry Master’s degree, a multidisciplinary training with many opportunities

The LUMOMAT Master’s degree in Chemistry offers a multidisciplinary training approaching chemistry from a new angle in order to transform matter in response to the current problems of society in the fields of energy, health, the environment or information storage. The objective of the LUMOMAT Master’s degree is to train chemists capable of producing the best possible molecules (or polymers) to integrate them into electronic or optical devices with various applications (organic photovoltaics, artificial photosynthesis, (bio)sensors, energy storage, ink printing, etc.).

To do this, students will learn how to respond to specifications, whether from a laboratory or a company, by designing and synthesizing custom-made molecules and defining their physico-chemical properties using a range of spectroscopic and electrochemical tools, etc. ….

Thanks to this wide range of skills, students will be able to manage research projects upstream of industrialization, in collaboration with colleagues from other disciplines such as physics, particularly for the insertion of molecules into devices. After two years of courses taught in English, students will also be ready to work in international teams.

Moreover, as the Master is open to alternating courses in M1 in Rennes and in M2 in Angers, students will have the opportunity to work in a company for one or two years in order to learn the job of a chemist in the field and to benefit from potential professional opportunities at the end of the Master.

Benefits of following LUMOMAT master

Close follow-up from the pedagogical team – LUMOMAT students are supported by a pedagogical team to help him build his professionnal future, and they benefit from :

  • LUMOMAT network to find interships, apprenticeships in laboratories or companies,
  • Mobility grants to go abroad for M1 or M2 internships,
  • Advices from LUMOMAT Business Developper, teachers from the Universities and the industry to enter the working world, find apprenticeships or internships,
  • A tutored project in research laboratories during M2.

Since 2020, LUMOMAT chemistry master is part of the research Graduate Program LUMOMAT, laureate from a prestigious call for projects. This label benefits to students by giving them access to top-range courses and LUMOMAT network.

LUMOMAT network activities :

  • seminars with industrials and international researchers, organized by parnters of LUMOMAT network (summer school, talks, workshops, congress…),
  • LUMOMAT alumni network,
  • favoured access to high-end technological platforms
  • M2 courses fully taught in english, validation of a assorti d’une certification TOEIC ou TOEFL.

Professionnal opportunies after the Master

After graduating from the master, LUMOMAT students will have advanced skills in molecular ingeniery and able to work in R&D departments to manage innovative projects.

Graduate students will also be able to enter public research at the engineer level after a competitive examination: CNRS, Universities, INRA, INSERM…

Graduate students can also carry on their studies by preparing a PhD in France or abroad and benefit from LUMOMAT thesis financial support.
