Ms Physics - Waves, Atoms, Matter (WAM)

The WAM master intends to provide full training and education to physicists who will be able to apprehend complex and interdisciplinary issues in modern physics. Differentiating itself from highly specialised Masters, this course claims its general approach, from theoretical physics to the development of technological systems. Immersed in internationally recognised institutes (INPHYNI, CRHEA, ARTEMIS), the students will get familiar with research requirements and adopt them. This privileged environment also offers a greater autonomy. Indeed, the WAM pathway is firmly focusing on project-based learning which covers nearly half of the ECTS credits attribution. This autonomy prepares the students to the completion of a doctoral thesis, leading to a position of researcher or research engineer in the major public institutions as well as in private R&D structures.


The semesters 1, 2 and 3 are divided into units of 3 or 6 ECTS credits. The semesters 2 and 4 offer respectively training courses of 3 and 6 months in a laboratory.
