Functionalized Advanced Materials and Engineering (FAME)

Course Description

Academic cooperation
Consortium of 7 universities:
››Belgium: Université de Liège, Université de Louvain
››France: Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (coordinator), University of Bordeaux
››Germany: Technische Universität Darmstadt, Universität Augsburg, Technische Universität Darmstadt
››Portugal: Universidade de Aveiro
››European Multifunctional Materials Institute (EMMI)

Program outline

The FAME Master is a two-year Master of Science Program in Advanced Functional Materials. It is taught in English (100%) and managed by seven universities, leaders in the field.

This program provides high-level academic and researchoriented 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.

The FAME program consists of four semesters (30 ECTS each) including a Master thesis in a European research laboratory.

››The first two semesters deal with general topics about material science (Augsburg or Grenoble).
››The third semester is dedicated to a specialization provided by one of the partner universities as world-leading expert. It is
composed of mandatory and optional courses. For students studying in Bordeaux, the specialization is “Advanced Hybrid
Materials and Ceramics by Design”.
››The last semester is spent in one of the laboratories of the European Network of Excellence FAME or in a related industry.

››High-level academic and researchoriented education about the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials including:
›› Chemistry and Physics of Materials during the first year.
›› Specialization in one of the seven programs offered by the partner universities.
››Strengthening of an international culture, including fluency in English, mobility as well as experience of the languages and culture of the countries visited.
››Improved integration capacity into either Academic or Industrial R&D teams.

And after?
After completion of this Master, students are encouraged to apply for Ph.D programs in Europe, including those offered by IDSFunMat, in the framework of EMMI.
Graduates may also start working as scientists or R&D engineers within the industrial sector.
