The AMASE programme is suitable for both European and Non-European B.Sc. graduates in Material Sciences or Engineering.
The AMASE programme offers:
- A well organised multilingual and intercultural study experience.
- A study programme in close collaboration with the research activities of the four Consortium members.
- Teaching in advanced materials, giving students innovative new ideas for their future careers.
- Preparation of students for life-long learning in different cultures and education/work environments.
- Better networking possibilities for research and education within the EU and with third countries.
TEACHING AND RESEARCH
The combined teaching and research programmes of the four Consortium members offer:
- A far greater variety of competences in the field of materials science and engineering than could be provided by a single university.
- Valuable opportunities for specialisation.
- A broad spectrum of research possibilities, from fundamental to industry-related research.
- The integration of different university profiles into one single study programme.
