Joint Practicum 2020

M2 Students (for M1 students see below)

 

The joint practicum will take place next February in Cadarache. All Master 2 students gather together to perform real research linked practica in small groups mixed with students from the French Fusion Master programmes. The course is in English under the supervision of some of the local partners and in cooperation with the French host CEA-IRFM.

Students work together during two weeks starting on Monday February 17 and ending on Friday February 28. The effective dates of the stay are Saturday February 15 to Saturday February 29. At the end the groups must present their conclusions. The last two days, students from Master 1 join the practicum to attend the presentations and to meet their Master 2 fellow students.
