MSc Tribology and Surface Engineering (TSE)

The TSE Master’s is based on a set of courses in the field of Tribology and Surface Engineering taught by members of the research labs and industries involved in Manutech over the Lyon – Saint-Étienne Area. It aims to bring to Master’s Student the fundamental and advanced knowledge of this research field.

Core subjects offered cover topics which are explored in depth in elective classes and through laboratory work.

Left : Surface treatment. Middle : microstructural consequences measured by EBSD. Right : design of novel experiments to characterize the micro-mechanical behaviour
