Polytech’s interdisciplinary culture is perfectly adapted to this field. Materials Science and Engineering involve the discovery and design of new materials (most often solids, but other condensed phases are included) intended to be used for specific applications. At Polytech, Materials Science programs combine training in Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering. Materials exhibit a myriad properties, including mechanical, optical, electrical, chemical, thermal and magnetic properties Their specific uses are numerous and varied, thereby generating a large diversity of industrial applications.

Skills and Employment Opportunities

Polytech Engineers graduating in Materials Science take up careers in the design, elaboration, characterization, production and transformation of materials for various fields of applications across many – if not all – industrial and service sectors : vehicle manufacturing, aerospace, building, instrumentation, biomedical science, optronics, nanotechnology, etc.
