The Advanced Materials - Innovative Recycling (AMIR) Master program offered by EIT RawMaterials Academy has been developed with the expertise of 6 European Universities. This way, AMIR brings together one of the best study programme of its kind.
This programme aims to answer vital questions regarding our future and the transition to a green, circular economy that emits less CO2. These questions will be answered by a team of academics, industry and research experts who will educate the next generation of professionals.
The AMIR programme partners
The AMIR programme works in collaboration with 6 leading European universities – the University of Bordeaux, NOVA University Lisbon, TU Darmstadt, the University of Liège, the Polytechnic University of Madrid and the University of Miskolc.
The programme was developed with the aim to bring together Europe’s leading academic experts in the field of materials recycling. This expertise is combined with some of the world’s leading industry experts to deliver a programme of excellence that is unrivalled in the field.
After graduating the AMIR Master programme students have the possibility of obtaining a double diploma; a nationally accredited diploma from each of the two partner universities where they study. Currently, the following combinations of partners lead to a double diploma:
- First-year at the University of Bordeaux and second year at either the Technical University of Madrid or TU Darmstadt
- First-year at NOVA University Lisbon or the University of Miskolc and second year at either the Technical University of Madrid, TU Darmstadt or University of Liège
All other first/second year combinations are technically possible, and lead to the award of a single diploma from the university attended in the first year. All graduating students are given a diploma supplement/certificate from the AMIR programme. This document will specify that they successfully completed the programme obtaining (at least) 120 ECTS, and at which of the partner universities they studied.
Professional profiles after graduation:
The AMIR programme offers students the necessary expertise to take positions in the recycling sector. Some examples of fields where they can work are:
- Process optimisation
- Materials design
- Plant administration
- Project administration
Also, the skills gained during this MSc can be transferable in sectors like information and communication technologies, building construction, energy, machinery tools, and mobility.
Finally, an academic career could be a possibility for AMIR graduates. They will be fully prepared to follow a PhD programme in the recycling sector to pursue engineering careers or academic research.
