Note: A degree can only be obtained if the total amount of participation fees has been paid before the Master is completed.
ATTENTION: Students studying at UdS for their first or second year must have completed a minimum 6 week materials science or materials science related internship / work experience at a company.
If this is done during your AMASE studies, you will be awarded 6 ECTS. If this was done during your Bachelor studies or you had a job in the field before starting AMASE, written proofs these activities will suffice.
The studies are structured in different modules. In order to obtain the Master’s Degree you will need to successfully pass special module elements, like lectures, workshops, tutorials, laboratory and project work, etc. More information about the modules and courses will be given to you at each university at the time of your arrival. You will be guided through the process of choosing the courses that you would like to attend, in accordance with the regulations.
In the first semester: 30 Credit Points must be earned. At least 25 of these must come from exams of the following subjects:
|1||Structure and Properties of Materials||min. 12, max. 15 CP|
|2||Materials Characterization||min. 5, max. 8 CP|
|3||Materials Engineering and Processing Technologies||min. 5, max. 8 CP|
In the second semester, you will have to select one of the following specialization tracks:
- Track 1: Advanced metallic materials (design, characterization and processing)
- Track 2: Polymers and composites (modelling, processing and tailored properties)
- Track 3: High performing surfaces (coating, structuring and fictionalization)
- Track 4: Materials engineering and manufacturing technologies
- Track 5: Bio/Nano materials (including special applications)
At least 26 of the 30 Credit Points earned must be part of the technical courses, seminars and/or project work for the selected track.
In any case, the total amount of Credit Points from technical courses in the correspondent track (2nd and 3rd semester) has to be at least 53 CP.
In the third semester, the student continues their specialization track at the Second University. Here, 26 Credit Points must also come from technical courses relevant to the chosen track.
In the fourth semester, the student has six months to write their Master’s Thesis. Upon passing, the last 30 Credit Points will be awarded.
