Overview of the AMASE Programme

The consortium

The Joint European Master Programme Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMASE) is a full-time Master Programme offered by

  • UdS: Saarland University, Germany
  • LTU: Luleå University of Technology, Sweden
  • UPC: BarcelonaTech, Spain
  • UL: Université de Lorraine, France

The language of instruction:

Each university has its own language requirements. Lectures will be held in the following languages:

  • UdS: German
  • LTU: English
  • UPC: Spanish
  • UL: French

Duration:

The Programme lasts two years, including six months working on the Master thesis.

Mobility:

Students attend courses at two of the universities in the Consortium. They spend the first two semesters at their chosen entrance university. For the third-semester students select one of the other three partner universities. In the 4th semester, students write their Master thesis at one of the two chosen universities.

Admission requirements:

The admission requirements are a Bachelor of Science or similar degree with thorough training in mathematics, physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and a basic knowledge of the structure and behaviour of materials.

Aims:

The aim of the Master Programme is to provide:

  • A well-integrated multilingual and intercultural experience
  • Education in close relation to the research activities of the four Consortium members
  • Education in advanced materials, to enhance the innovation potential of the students in their future activities
  • Preparation of the students for life-long learning in new places, different cultures and new education/work systems
  • Enhancement of networking activities within the EU and with third countries in the field of research and education

Teaching and research:

The combined and harmonised teaching and research programmes of the four member universities offer:

  • A far greater variety of competencies in the field of materials science and engineering that could be provided by a single university
  • A significant added value for the students in terms of opportunities for specialisation
  • A broad spectrum of research possibilities, from fundamental to industry-related research
  • The transfer of individual university-profiles to the whole programme

Target group:

The AMASE Programme is addressed to both European and overseas BSc graduates in science or engineering.

Programmes taught in:
  • English (US)

This school also offers:

MSc
