At UPJV, they just graduated from an original master's degree
Students from the Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion degree (MESC) just graduated in Amiens (UPJV). This international curriculum tackling tomorrow's materials is strongly linked to the LRCS lab (CNRS/UPJV), a renowned battery research center, where many of those graduates will begin a PhD.
«After their degree, more than 70 % begins a PhD. Sometimes Asian students even get a job right aftergraduation», explains Prof. Christian Masquelier, MESC coordinator. This master's degree is in part funded by industrials in the hope of recruiting the new graduates.
