MaMaSELF - Master in Materials Science Exploring Large scale Facilities is a two year European Master program in Materials Science, which aims to teach the application of “Large Scale Facilities” for the characterization and development of materials.

Modern life and globalisation imply new and additional exigencies for scientists and scientific engineers in the field of scientific and industrial competitiveness. This holds specifically for the development of new technologies and new materials which are important key-products and which contribute to the technological and scientific competitiveness of highly industrialized countries. The characterisation of these materials and also the optimising of technologies strongly demand sophisticated methods, some of them uniquely available at “Large Scale Facilities” using neutrons or synchrotron radiation.

MaMaSELF is a two-year full time European Masters program in Materials Science, building up a European platform, strongly involving “Large Scale Research Facilities”. The Masters degree is delivered by two or three out of four universities: Rennes1 (F), Torino (I), TUM and LMU at München (DE).

This Master aims to promote the scientific collaboration between Universities, Large Scale Facilities and Industry. Its main objective is to achieve skilled scientists in Materials Science together with an advanced knowledge in the use of Large Scale Facilities for the characterization of high tech materials.

Criteria are three successful years of full time studies spent in a national BSc course (or equivalent) in Materials Science or related areas (Physics, Chemistry, Geoscience etc…) together with a proficiency level of scientific English, e.g. TOEFL210/550, IELTS6.5, or similar. The enrolment will be limited to 45 students per year to guarantee an excellent professor/student ratio. Several important European Large Scale Facilities (ESRF and ILL (Grenoble, France), LLB Saclay, France), DESY (Hamburg, Germany) and FRM II (Munich, Germany), ELETTRA, Italy) strongly support this Master and will co-organize the summer school and will host students in the fourth semester to follow research activities.

Strongly multidisciplinary lectures in Chemistry, Physics and Material Science will be entirely given in English. Students will receive a double/multiple Master degree in Material Science, giving direct access to further PhD studies.

Deadline 26/01/2011 for CAT A Scholarship (non-EU students) and 20/05/2011 for CAT B Scholarship (EU students and Non EU Students who have spent more than 12 month in Europe). Students who apply without fellowship can apply till May 31st 2011.
