This international Master's course is designed to provide a 2-year (120 ECTS) education programme in Advanced Materials Science within seven universities of the FAME Network of Excellence in four European countries (Germany, France, Belgium and Portugal) that host world-renowned leading research laboratories in the field of advanced materials science. The course aims at providing high-level academic and research-oriented education about the synthesis, the characterisation and the processing of all classes of functional materials with special emphasis on hybrids, ceramics and smart nano-materials.
The final goal is to prepare the students for entering a Ph.D. programme in Europe or abroad, possibly in one of the FAME network laboratories. Alternatively, students should be able to fill leading positions in industry as scientists or engineers in materials science.
