What will I learn?

AMIS is a Master program which explores the theme of “Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products for optimized performance”.

Program outline

Labeled by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), AMIS is a Master program in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability which explores the theme of “Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products for optimized performance”. It also covers the topics of “Material chain optimization for end-of-life products” and “Product and services design for the circular economy” - all of which are central themes of the AMIS. The primary focus of the AMIS program is metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-based and polymer materials are studied in view of their substitution potential. Other materials are also analyzed in the context of multi material product recycling. In addition, the AMIS program includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Program structure

Mobility is integrated within the two-year program, during which students study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the program, graduates are awarded 120 ECTS and a double degree delivered by two of the five partner institutions where they studied. Students begin the Master program at Grenoble INP, Aalto University or T.U. Darmstadt. In their second year, students specialize in another partner university:

To attend the specialization year offered at the University of Bordeaux, prospective students must attend the first year at either Aalto University or the Technical University of Darmstadt.

Year 2 specializations are the following:

  • University of Bordeaux: Advanced Hybrid Materials: Composites and Ceramics by Design
  • T.U. Darmstadt: Functional Ceramics: Processing, Characterization and Properties
  • Aalto University: Nano-materials and interfaces: Advanced Characterization and Modeling
  • University of Liège: Nano-materials and Modeling
  • Grenoble INP: Materials Interfaces: Surfaces, Films & Coatings
