Master Chimie, Parcours : Chimie pour le Vivant (CV)

Le parcours Chimie pour le Vivant du Master de Chimie a pour objectif de former des spécialistes et cadres (niveau Bac + 5) de la chimie, capables de travailler à l’interface avec la biologie. Ceux-ci pourront employer leurs connaissances et compétences dans des équipes de recherche, recherche/développement, production, dans des domaines variés de la chimie, l’agro-alimentaire, la pharmacie, l’environnement.

    The aim of the Chemistry for Life course of the Master of Chemistry is to train specialists and managers (level Bac + 5) in chemistry, capable of working at the interface with biology. They will be able to use their knowledge and skills in research, research/development and production teams in various fields of chemistry, agri-food, pharmacy and the environment.

    Students can follow the Master ce Chemistry in initial training, in continuing education, in alternation via professionalization contracts, as well as validate professional competences thanks to the Validation of Professional Acquirements (VAP) or by the Experience (VAE).

    Students will acquire both general skills in chemistry (semester 1), advanced theoretical skills in their field of specialisation within the Chemistry for Life course (semesters 2 and 4) and a very strong experimental know-how. They will thus have the essential disciplinary skills of any chemist (in particular analytical methods, spectroscopies, experimental techniques and bibliographic research), and others more focused on the applications specific to the Chemistry for Life course.

    The graduate trained in chemistry and biology has the knowledge, skills and competencies to

    • Work within a multidisciplinary team.
    • To master the methods of chemical synthesis of active molecules and the methods of studying the interactions of the molecule with its environment.
    • Synthesise knowledge from different disciplines, chemistry and biology.
    • Design new products with potential biological activity.
    • Maîtrise spectroscopic and physicochemical tools to characterize compounds, highlight interactions with macromolecules of the living.
    • Mobilise your skills in chemistry to study biological phenomena.

    In order for students to develop their skills in teamwork in an academic and industrial environment, they will have the opportunity to complete at least two internships (in a laboratory and in a company), in France or abroad, during the two years of the Master's programme (one internship in a laboratory and one in a company);alise at least two internships (in the laboratory and in industry), in France or abroad, during the two years of the Master's degree (a minimum of 3 months internship in M1 and 6 months in M2), as well as at least two compulsory tutor projects.


    The teaching is given in part in a classical form with lectures, tutorials and practical work, but also in the form of projects (tutorials during practical work) and work done by students (document studies, bibliography, etc.);The course will be taught in the form of projects (tutor projects, during practical work), and work carried out by students (document studies, bibliography, case studies), then presented orally to all.
