About

This international Master program in Advanced Materials Innovative Recycling (AMIR) at the University of Bordeaux offers a high-level, interdisciplinary academic program focusing on the raw material value chain with particular emphasis on recycling.

Overview

This Advanced Materials Innovative Recycling (AMIR) at the University of Bordeaux focuses on the raw material value chain, with particular emphasis on recycling. The two main objectives are:

  • Educate students to become highly-skilled European professionals with expertise in various types of materials. This expertise will enable them to develop, at a large and ambitious scale, new methods for material recycling. In addition, the AMIR program includes classes on transferable skills such as innovation, ethics, intellectual property, life cycle assessment, sustainability and advanced research strategies.
  • Develop a deep entrepreneurship mind-set with the help and expertise of associated businesses, incubators and innovation services as well as a large panel of industries.
Academic cooperation:
  • France: University of Bordeaux (UBx)
  • Belgium: University of Liege (ULg)
  • Germany: Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt)
  • Spain: Technical University of Madrid (UPM)
  • Portugal: NOVA University Lisbon
  • Hungary: University of Miskolc

After this Master program?

The AMIR program benefits from a strong academic, research and industrial network.

After graduation, students are fully prepared to integrate the working environment as professionals in the recycling sector (process optimization, materials design, plant administration, project management, etc.) whether it be in the industrial field or governmental organizations. Possible sectors include: information and communication technologies, building construction, energy, machinery tools, mobility.

Graduates also obtain the necessary skills and knowledge to set up their own company or work in sales and marketing.

Programme Structure

Students learn about 

  • general and technical aspects of the raw material value chain (general chemistry, material science, lifecycle of materials) 
  • as well as about the main outcomes of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT): sustainability, intellectual transformation, value judgments (ethical, scientific and sustainability challenges), creativity, innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship. 
  • The third semester (Master 2) is dedicated to a specialization in one of the partner universities. This part of the program offers the possibility to follow selected advanced materials classes for various applications (energy, e-mobility - magnets, transport, environments - catalysis, etc.). The specializations are:
  • Darmstadt: material design for recycling
  • Liege: metallurgy and metals recycling
  • Madrid: mineral recycling for construction and other sectors
