Team & Consortium
The AMASE Master Consortium
AMASE is one of the international study programmes coordinated by EUSMAT, the European School of Materials. The EUSMAT Office and team is located on the campus of Saarland University at the Chair of Functional Materials.
The AMASE Consortium consists of four partner universities:
UdS – Universität des Saarlandes, Germany
- Saarland University (German: Universität des Saarlandes) is a modern research university located in Saarbrücken, the capital of the German state of Saarland. It was founded in 1948 in Homburg in co-operation with France and is organized in six faculties that cover all major fields of science.
With its numerous degree programmes and the variety of final qualifications offered (bachelor, master, Ph.D., state examinations), Saarland University provides the broad spectrum of disciplines typical of a classical universitas litterarum.
LTU – Luleå tekniska universitet, Sweden
- Luleå University of Technology is experiencing strong growth with world-leading competence in several areas of research. Research at Luleå University of Technology is for the most part applied research and is conducted in close collaboration with international and national companies.
The research has a turnover of over EUR 90 million and covers 70 research subjects.
UPC – Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain
- UPC is a public university that carries out research and provides higher education in the fields of architecture, engineering, sciences and technology.
In collaboration with industry, the UPC is a driver of economic and social change, valorising research and transferring technology and knowledge to society.
As a leading member of networks of excellence, the UPC has privileged relations with scientific and educational institutions all over the world.
UL – Université de Lorraine, France
- Université de Lorraine promotes innovation through the dialogue of knowledge, taking advantage of the variety and strength of its scientific fields, and aiming at the promotion of knowledge transfer to irrigate innovation and economic growth as well as the progress of fundamental science.
Université de Lorraine is a major actor of economic and social development in “La Grande Région”, building on intercultural and intergeneration links, coordinating a regional research policy, and giving access to higher education to as many inhabitants as possible.
Theses universities agreed to establish and operate a European Master programme in Advanced Material Science in 2006.
Through this agreement participating students can obtain a Master’s Degree, which leads to a double degree and is issued officially by two institutions involved in the integrated studies / issued by two institutions from the consortium. Therefore it counts as a double degree. These degrees are recognized in the countries where the degree-awarding universities are located.
