The Advanced Materials (AM) degree contains two orientations related to two European international Master degrees:

  • AMIS (Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability) labeled by the EIT Raw materials
  • FAMEAIS (Functional Advanced Materials and Engineering) labeled by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree of Erasmus+.

Each student must choose the orientation she/he will integrate.

The main objective is the education of engineers who have not only state-of-the-art training in Materials Research, but also are exposed to the international and interdisciplinary dimension of modern Materials Science, while developing advanced skills and awareness to societal and industrial needs.

Students’ mobility is an integrated part of the two-year program, during which they will study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a double degree (Phelma engineering diploma and a Master of Science).
