Training objectives

The objective of the program is to prepare students for new career opportunities, not only in the field of microfluidics but also in any area involving fluids and micro/nanotechnologies.

This is why the training is very open-ended: fluid dynamics, physical chemistry, opening to biology, biotechnology, and many practicals in micro/nanofabrication. The courses are provided by leading professors, experts in their field, opened to academic research at the highest level and offer an attractive profile for many companies involved in these matters.The number of areas of interest in microfluidics (either academic or industrial ones) is considerable: medicine, energy, green chemistry, cosmetics, food industry...Tomorrow, the technologies currently developed will allow:

  • In BIOLOGY, processing a large number of samples, conducting experiments on the scale of the cell and understanding the interactions between cells, improving the accuracy and timeliness of diagnosis as HIV, reducing experimental volumes...
  • EN CHEMISTRY, testing thousands of reactions, encapsulating chemical reactions in microfluidic drops...
  • EN PHYSICS, creating controlled automated systems and experimental set-ups...
Thus, this Master program opens to great opportunities in a new field, with strong international growth in a multidisciplinary spirit, yet avoiding a premature specialization.
