Final degree & carrer opportunities

Final Degree

After achievement of the curriculum, students will graduate with a double Master degree in Materials Science awarded by the two Consortium universities where the students have studied. Following degrees, fully recognised in partner countries, will be delivered by Consortium universities :

  • Grenoble INP : Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering
  • Universität Augsburg : Master of Science in Advanced Functional Materials
  • Technische Universität Darmstadt : Master of Science in Materials Science
  • Universidade de Aveiro : Master in Chemistry and Engineering of Materials
  • Université catholique de Louvain : Master in Chemical and Materials Engineering
  • Université de Bordeaux : Master of Science in Synthesis and Properties of inorganic materials
  • Université de Liège : Master of Science in Physics or Chemistry

Career opportunities

After completion of this Master students will have the choice of applying for Ph.D. programs in Europe and/or working as scientist or R&D engineer in industry.

The developed skills and knowledge relate to several classes of materials such as, for example, composites, ceramics, hybrids, nanomaterials and nanostructured materials, thin films, etc. These skills will be highly appreciated by industries in the Materials Science domain or by Laboratories, especially in the following sectors: Microelectronics, Optics, Bio-technologies, Energy, Communication, Environment, etc.

NEW !!! As of 2010, the EM Joint Doctorate Programme IDS-FunMat will enable the FAME students to carry on with their research studies within the EMMI consortium!!

What students become...

The first edition (2007-2009) has been awarded the Erasmus Mundus FAME Master of science degree in 2009. Around 3/4 of the students carry on their research studies and start a PhD among FAME partners (Louvain, Darmstadt, Liège, Grenoble, Bordeaux...) or within industries in Europe. The others are looking for a job in an international environment and in the FAME domain.
