Master course in Materials science with Scholarships available

Master Erasmus Mundus MaMaSELF 

  •  Mamaself : a 2 year Master course in Materials science.
  •  Scholarships available for both European students  and Non-European students
  •  An international Master  with several mobilities in Europe

Master in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities.

Mamaself is a 2 year full time Master proposing a high level course in Material science, physics, chemistry with strong relation to the Large Scale Facilities.

This Master is the result of the collaboration between five Universities: University Rennes 1, (France, coordinating institution of the program), University of Montpellier (France).
Technical University (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximilian University München (Germany) and University of Torino, (Italy).

Mamaself is an international Master proposing courses at these 5 universities in very interesting cities in Europe. This is a great opportunity for students to combine  study and discovering Europe. All lectures are given in English, and the atmosphere is really international : a Mamaself class is composed with 2/3 Non-European students and 1/3 European students.

The students appreciate the structure of the program with 3 key events : integration week at the beginning of the program, two-week Summerschool and Mamaself status meeting organised at the top of a mountain in Switzerland  with our partner the PSI  Zurich (see website for details).

The student will receive at least 2 Master degrees, corresponding to his/her two places of study during the program : each student will spend one year in a first hosting institution, the first semester of the second Master year at another university. The last semester is dedicated to the Master thesis and can be spent at a university or at Large scale Faclities or at a partner institution in USA, Japan, Switzerland, Brazil, India and Russia at our partner institutions.
