M1 Soft Matter and Biophysics

The M1 Soft Matter and Biophysics is accessible to student having a background in physics, physico-chemistry, or engineering, including mechanical and chemical engineering.

The core courses provide the theoretical, numerical and experimental background to pursue a 2nd year M2in one of the tracks:

The curriculum of the 1st year (M1) contains a significant amount of electives, allowing students to broaden their formation in biology and biophysics, or in physico-chemistry and engineering, depending on the M2 program they head for.

The M1 Soft Matter & Biophysics can be followed through the UGA Graduate School program in Soft Nanosciences. In this case students follow the Research Methodology course in the 1st semester and take only 6 credits of elective courses. In the second semester they take the Graduate School Soft-Nano internship and do not take electives.

Second semester 30 ECTS

Compulsory courses 18 ECTS

Research intership  6 ECTS

Elective courses 6 ECTS

  • Modeling in systems biology
  • Bioenergetics

other courses in M1 Nanochemistry, M1 Nanophysics, or M1 Applied Mechanics
