MaMaSELF registration for the year 2014/2015 runs until 26 January 2014.
Progress and competitiveness depend significantly on new materials and new technologies. The characterization of these materials and also the optimizing of technologies strongly demand sophisticated methods, some of them uniquely available at “Large Scale Facilities” using neutrons or synchrotron radiation
The two-year Master's program “Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities (MaMaSELF)” starts in 2014. MaMaSELF is part of the EU Erasmus Mundus program – at least once relocation to another major research institution is mandatory. The partner institutions are distributed all over Europe. So there are many opportunities to implement this requirement, one is the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum. Application requirement is a bachelor's degree in materials science, physics, chemistry, earth sciences or related disciplines. Instruction language at all partner sites is English, so good knowledge of English is essential.
The main advantages of the Master program are:
