  • Material chain optimisation for end-of-life products
  • Product and services design for the circular economy

The primary focus of the adaptation is on metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-base and polymer materials are covered in view of their substitution potential and other materials 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. Student mobility is an integrated part of the two-year programme, during which you will study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the programme, you will receive a double degree.
