The purpose of the ColTAS Master is to provide comprehensive training in the multidisciplinary study of Color Science and Technology from a global perspective. Students will examine the physico-chemical and visual laws and solve real or simulated problems that often arise when using special effect pigments in different industrial sectors, particularly within the automotive sector.
The organization in two weeks of the Automotive Color Workshop, in an intensive program including demo sessions by instrument companies, invited seminars by experts, and practical lab sessions, will help to acquire and complete an inter and multi-disciplinary training of the Color Science and Technology based on special-effect pigments for the next months, both for internships and their professional careers.
In addition, the pre-registration period for the edition 2018-19 is open till 30th June: . For color experts with, or not, a university degree, this new postgraduate course is a great chance to enhance training and professional qualifications. Meanwhile, recent graduates will find it easier to obtain highly specialized jobs, which are therefore more highly valued (and better paid).
