Joint European Master Programme on Advanced Materials Science and Engineering
Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2021 PROJECT  ONGOING 

AMASE - Joint European Master Programme in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering• Full-time programme offered since 2005 by: Universität des Saarlandes (Saarbrücken - Germany); Université de Lorraine (Nancy - France), Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Barcelona - Spain) and Luleå Tekniska Universitet (Luleå - Sweden).• The consortium has a long experience following 25 years of collaboration within the EEIGM - École Européenned'Ingénieurs en Génie des Matériaux and several EU-Projects, including the Erasmus Mundus Doctorate DocMASE.• Duration: 2 years, 120 ECTS, including a 6-month Master Thesis (30 ECTS).• Objectives: to provide high-level multinational and research-oriented education in materials science and engineering(MSE), well integrated language and cultural experience; to prepare students for a PhD and for the industry and thus contribute to innovation and enhancement of the renown of European universities.• At least two languages of instruction: English (in Sweden), German, French and Spanish (depending on chosenuniversities). Language courses integrated in the programme (12 ECTS). Intercultural training module during integration week. Entrepreneurial training during Professional Summer School.• Students attend courses at two universities: 1st and 2nd semesters at entrance university, 3rd semester at seconduniversity, fourth semester (Master Thesis) at one of these two universities.• Adaptation phase in 1st semester: Module I – Structure and properties of materials; Module II - Characterisation andmodelling of materials; Module III - Technologies of materials. Afterwards, five possible specialization tracks (2nd and3rd semester):o Track 1: Advanced metallic materials - Design, characterization and processingo Track 2: Polymers and composites - Modelling, processing and tailored propertieso Track 3: High performing surfaces - Coating, structuring and functionalizationo Track 4: Materials engineering and manufacturing technologieso Track 5: Bio/Nanomaterials (including special applications)• Entry requirements: BSc or similar degree with training in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and basic knowledgeof MSE. Sufficient knowledge of the language of the entrance university (B1-B2).• Students obtain a Joint Master Certificate, a Joint Diploma Supplement and a double Master's degree awarded by the two universities they have attended.• Strong network of associated partners involving renowned research centres and industry for doing common research projects and master thesis.• Partners in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, India, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, Tunissia, South Africa, and USA among others which collaborate in disseminating the programme, selecting students, and helping students with mobility arrangements.• Strong interaction with industry: common research projects & internships.
