Graduate School - Integrated Msc/PhD Program


The University of Strasbourg introduces the new international integrated MSc/PhD program "Chemistry of Complex Systems" (CSC), starting in September 2018. This graduate school will welcome outstanding students from all over the world.

The overall aim of this new program is to prepare a new generation of researchers for the profound changes that CSC will induce so that it can be used as a tool for innovation, thereby creating the leaders of tomorrow for both academia and industry.

In contrast to the current trend of hyper-specialization, the students in this graduate school will acquire a solid background in various topics which CSC requires, ranging from synthesis to control theory. The program is designed to include much more hands-on laboratory experience during the Master years in order to strengthen the student’s autonomy. Through our close ties to industry, the students will be exposed to the latest developments in industrial R&D through courses given by industrial partners.
