Mamaself : a 2 year Master course in Materials Science


 Master in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities.

Mamaself is a 2 year full time Master aiming to promote the scientific collaboration between universities, large scale facilities and industry.

This Master is the result of the collaboration between four Universities: University Rennes 1, (France), University of Torino, (Italy), Technical University (TUM) and the Ludwig Maximilian University München (Germany). The University of Montpellier 2 (France) is now full partner of the Mamaself Consortium. The Master degree will be delivered by two of the four universities, so the students will receive a double Master degree in Materials Science.

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 Large scale Faclities or at a partner institution in Japan, Switzerland or India.

Grants for Non-European students

For each academic year the consortium of universities selects Non-European students who will receive a grant. Each Non-European student will receive a grant of 22.000 euros per year. Deadline for application: 26.01.2012. Non-EU students who already spent a time in Europe can applicate in the cat B fellowship, deadline 18.5.2011.

In the framework of the Erasmus Mundus 2 programme, European students can apply for an  EM fellowship of 9.000€ per year. European students can receive 3000€ mobility grant for a period at one of the non EU partner institutions in Japan, Switzerland or India. Deadline for application: 18.5.2012.  



Students must have 180 ECTS (or equivalent) in Material Science or related disciplines (Chemistry, Physics, Geoscience,…), good academic records and  good English competencies. The application must be done online on:

The deadline for submission is: 26 January 2012, the deadline for students who apply without EM grant is: 18 Mai 2010.
