Master Sciences de la fusion
© CEA (Click to view larger version...)
With the construction of two large fusion facilities—ITER and the Laser Mega Joule (an inertial fusion project near Bordeaux)—currently underway on its soil, France is becoming a world reference in fusion science.

In order to prepare high-level French and international scientists and engineers to exploit these devices and to advance the fields of plasma science, fusion science and energy, a new Master's program in fusion sciences was established in 2006.

Three Master's programs are offered by 13 participating higher education institutions in France and two associate members. Participants have a choice of four sites (Île de France, Aix-Marseille, Nancy and Bordeaux), with each program including one month of class at one of the functioning research institutions in France. The programs end with a five-month research project and thesis.

The students can choose between plasma and fusion physics (confinement and inertial); large scientific instruments (engineering, technology and physics); and fusion and plasma science. Courses are taught in French (some possibilities do exist in English).
