Master in Materials science and engineering

Master in Materials science and engineering

Functionalized advanced materials 1st and 2nd year

Presentation and goals

FAME+ is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme on Functional Advanced Materials and Engineering organised by high level European Universities in the frame of ERASMUS

The objectives are :

- to provide high level academic and research oriented education about the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials with a special emphasis on Nanomaterials, Hybrids and Ceramics.

 - to offer mobility during the two-year master program to take advantage of the complementary skills of the universities in the network.

 - to prepare students to enter a PhD program in Europe or elsewhere, for instance at one of the EMMI network laboratories.



Programme strengths

Students in this program will be awarded a multiple or double Master degree in "Materials Science" by the consortium universities in which the student studied.

  • Training partners ( Bosch, CEA, EMMI, IMEC, Rhodia, SusChem)

Each student will be required to complete an internship either at a European research laboratory or among the associated partners. This is an opportunity to consolidate and discover working methods and to learn how to manage real projects. A written dissertation will be required at the end of the training period to be defended in front of a jury.

Entrance requirements

The admission criteria are highly competitive

To be selected as a regular student, an applicant must have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Science (Physics, Chemistry, Metallurgy, Materials Science, Electrochemistry) or its equivalent from a college, university, or technical school of high standing.

Students in their final year of undergraduate study may be admitted on the condition that their Bachelor’s degrees are awarded before they enroll the program in Sept/Oct.

Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their prior performance and professional promise, as evidenced by academic records and letters of reference from individuals familiar with their capabilities. In addition, they will have to explain their career goals and reasons for coming to Europe for education.
