"Summer school" programmes

Come and join one of the annual summer schools proposed by CPE Lyon !


Chemistry and chemical engineering

> International Summer School in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Organised by CPE Lyon from June 9th to July 13th 2016.

The CPE Lyon part of the IPL International Summer School includes a 5-week programme of practical classes in chemistry and chemical engineering (40 hours) in addition to taking the French language classes (40 hours for beginners and intermediates students) and the industrial and cultural visits.
The practical classes are designed to allow students to transfer credits for the study to their home university. The practical work programme is flexible. Experiments are offered in Chemical Engineering and Analytical Chemistry. Some experiments will be open-ended allowing students to go deeper into the particular aspect of the subject concerned. A programme oriented towards chemistry students and a programme oriented towards chemical engineering students is provided. All students will have free access to the Internet. Accommodation is provided for the five weeks of the Summer School.

The total cost to students is 1900 Euros. This covers all tuition costs, the costs of the industrial and cultural visits, and accommodation for the five weeks in a residence hall. The cost of meals and local transport is not included (but students will have access to the dining halls with meal plans).

This is a tremendous opportunity to gain an international experience, to improve your scientific knowledge and practical skills, and to learn the French language. Only a very basic prior knowledge of French is necessary. The practical classes will be given in English when necessary, and, for the language study, students will be divided into groups depending on their ability : beginners and intermediates. The laboratory experiments offered are given on the following pages. Any students interested in this course are invited to contact Maria-Angelina Beaucourt (maria-angelina.beaucourt@cpe.fr) if further information is required.

Applications should be made using the IPL International Summer School form which is found on the website : http://www.ipl.fr/summerschool/

Please respect the deadline (31 March) for applications if possible.

Later applications will be considered but a place cannot be guaranteed.
