To facilitate interdisciplinary study-to-work transition
Topics: educational innovation, socio-economic world, research, Centrale Marseille
Disciplinary fields: mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer sciences
Summary: The goal of this project is to help science students to mature their personal and professional projects to enable them to project themselves as interdisciplinary actors in society. To this end, they will be placed in touch with the socio-economic and academic world by confronting them with the forefront of innovation through visits to companies or major research centers. The second proposal is to familiarize the students with the multidisciplinary research activities of AMU’s laboratories through the organization of conferences. Lastly, the aim is also to make their future academic choices and professional integration more effective through short multi-disciplinary projects supervised by the teaching team, and allows them to live their first professional experience in AMU research laboratories or internationally. The MPCI BSc is multidisciplinary by construction, so its students will be at the heart of the project, but the various events will be open to all students of the Science Faculty. In addition, the pedagogical developments planned for this project require close collaboration between teachers of different disciplinary cultures. In the MPCI BSc, these relationships are already well established, which will guarantee the success of the project, but the educational innovations created will be transferable to many Science BSc and MSc courses.
