The FAME Master provides high-level academic and research oriented education about the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials with special emphasis on “Advanced Hybrid Materials and Ceramics by Design” in Bordeaux.
European mobility is mandatory during the two-year Master program thus taking advantage of the complementary skills of the universities in the network. In the last decade, more than 200 students have graduated from the FAME Master.
The FAME program consists of four semesters (30 ECTS each) including a Master thesis in a European research laboratory.
High-level academic and research-oriented education about the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials including:
