The AMASE programme is built on excellence. Candidates with exceptional academic achievements are particularly sought after. The programme is particularly attractive for students with outstanding results in subject areas relevant to materials science and engineering (e.g. material science, physics, etc.). Additionally, around 15% of your academic records should include courses related to mathematics.
At the end of the day, all applications will be considered, no matter the academic results.
Previous studies in Materials Science
Students should have previous study experience in areas relevant to Materials Science and Engineering. The ranking goes as follows:
- Materials Science, Materials Engineering
- Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical, Electronic, Civil Engineering, etc.
With degrees in Civil Engineering, Telecommunications, Textile Engineering, Design, Architecture, Computational Science, Informatics you will not be entitled to scholarships and only be accepted in exceptional cases.
Good command of the language of the Entrance University is a precondition for the programme. It is advantageous that you also know the language of the Second University. If this is not the case, you should be willing to learn it.
It is also important that you are highly motivated to complete the AMASE programme. You can prove this by a well-written motivation letter on why you want to join the programme (1 page max.).
Former work experiences
Experience in research and development at universities and/or in the industry can also be advantageous and should be mentioned in your application. These experiences can be internships, jobs, project work, etc.
Language knowledge for Entrance University:
Sufficient knowledge of the language of instruction of the Entrance University (at least a EU- B2 level, see grading of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
Language knowledge for Second University:
At least some basic knowledge of the language at the Second University is required. You can also apply without any knowledge, but be aware that the courses will be held in the local language. It is therefore advisable to start learning the second language as soon as possible.
