Erasmus Mundus Scholarship for Joint European Master Program Advanced Materials Science and Engineering

Country: Europe;

Deadline: 15.01.2016



The Joint European Master Program Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMASE) is a full-time Master Program offered by


  • UdS: Saarland University, Germany
  • LTU: Luleå University of Technology, Sweden
  • UPC: BarcelonaTech, Spain
  • UL: Université de Lorraine, France
    The language of instruction:

    Each university has its own language requirements. Lectures will be held in the following languages:

  • UdS: German
  • LTU: English
  • UPC: Spanish
  • UL: French

The Program lasts two years, including six months working on the Master thesis.


Students attend courses at two of the universities in the Consortium. They spend the first two semesters at their chosen entrance university. For the third semester students select one of the other three partner universities. In the 4th semester, students write their Master thesis at one of the two chosen universities. 

See program structure.

Admission requirements:

The admission requirements are a Bachelor of Science or similar degree with thorough training in mathematics, physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and a basic knowledge of the structure and behaviour of materials.


The aim of the Master Program is to provide:

A well-integrated mulilingual and intercultural experience 

Education in close relation to the research activities of the four Consortium members

Education in advanced materials, to enhance the innovation potential of the students in their future activities

Preparation of the students for life-long learning in new places, different cultures and new education/work systems

Enhancement of networking activities within the EU and with third countries in the field of research and education 

Teaching and research:

The combined and harmonised teaching and research programs of the four member universities offer:

A far greater variety of competences in the field of materials science and engineering than could be provided by a single university

A significant added value for the students in terms of opportunities for specialisation

A broad spectrum of research possibilities, from fundamental to industry-related research

The transfer of individual university-profiles to the whole program

Target group:

The AMASE Program is addressed to both European and overseas BSc graduates in science or engineering.

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

Erasmus Mundus aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic cooperation between Europe and the rest of the world.


Erasmus Mundus scholarships will be awarded to students for each of the five editions of the EMMC. The number of scholarships for each category of individuals (students from categories A and B as well as third-country) will be defined on a yearly basis and communicated to selected EMMCs in the autumn of the year preceding the academic year concerned. As an indication, this number will most probably vary between 7 and 17 student scholarships.


It should be noted that, while the Category A scholarships should be considered as "full scholarships" covering all necessary costs of the student during his/her study period in Europe, Category B scholarships have to be considered as a "financial contribution" to the student's costs while following his/her EMMC studies.



  • To be considered for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, you have to choose two universities different from your last university degree
  • So if you have a German Bachelor for example, you may not study in Germany during the AMASE Master Program, if you want to get a scholarship
  • Exception: Students with a joint, multiple, double degree can select the award country of their choice (former Atlantis students f.e.)
