Summary

The Master’s program in Sustainable Printed and Integrated Electronics (Master’s Degree, One Year Graduate Program) is developed to train specialists in the field of printed electronics and equip them with the skills needed to design, develop and add new functionalities to 2D and 3D objects using innovative printing processes.

The program, which combines materials science, electronics and sustainable innovation, will enable graduates to meet the challenges involved in 2D/3D object functionalization and the eco-design of electronic devices. The skills they acquire will allow connected objects to be manufactured at a lower cost and using fewer resources.

Today, these skills are sought after by countless companies in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, healthcare and printing sectors.

 

This Master’s program is open to students who have completed at least 4 years of higher education or 1 year of graduate studies (the equivalent of 240 ECTS credits) in France or abroad. It forms part of the Grenoble INP – Génie Industriel ’s Industrial Engineering Master’s program and leads to an official qualification.

Students can obtain scholarships, either in France or in their home country, to cover all or part of the enrolment fee as well as living costs. This program also includes a final-year internship lasting 5-6 months, either in a company or in a laboratory, which pays around €600 a month if it takes place in France.

Objectives

The purpose of this Master’s program is to train specialists to harness various functional printing processes and technologies relating to printed electronics, enabling them develop and add functionalities to 2D and 3D objects and connected components. Thanks to additive manufacturing technologies, including printing processes, and in keeping with an eco-design and sustainable development approach, 2D/3D objects and components can now be equipped with new functionalities or become connected on demand.

By the time they have completed the Masters program, our future specialists will have acquired all the necessary skills in the following areas:

  • Materials science, inks, printing techniques and surface application processes.
  • Electronics, optoelectronics, energy management, the use of sensors and realworld applications of connected objects.
  • Innovation management, ecodesign and life cycle assessment.

Specificities

With courses in English, the Masters in Sustainable Printed and Integrated Electronics mainly is dedicated to English-speaking students with a variety of backgrounds and profiles.

The program is therefore a great opportunity to meet people from different cultures and to develop the capacity to work and manage projects in an international context.

This Master’s program is the only one of its kind in France. It covers the following topics:

  • Electronics and optoelectronics (design, functionalities, use of sensors, energy management, connected objects).
  • Additive manufacturing, printing processes and functional inks.
  • Materials (biobased, polymeric, etc.) for printed electronics.
  • Ecodesign and assessing sustainability (life cycle analysis, environmental impact, sustainable innovation).
