M1 Molecular Chemistry

Frédéric Joliot-Curie track

The Frédéric Joliot-Curie track, the first part of Ecole Polytechnique's two-year Master program, is a high-level scientific and academic program devoted to molecular chemistry. The program is taught in English, and is open to French or international students meeting the academic requirements. Courses are shared with those of Ecole Polytechnique's engineering program, therefore the teaching corresponds to that delivered in the third year of the "Ingénieur Polytechnicien" curriculum with a specialization in Molecular chemistry. A 4-to-6-month research project, in France or abroad, starts in March and follows the courses taught from September to February. The Frédéric Joliot-Curie track is the perfect introduction to the Molecular Chemistry, Science and Engineering (MCSE) second-year master program (M2)
