About

This international Erasmus Mundus Master program Functional Advanced Materials and Engineering (FAME) from the University of Bordeaux covers the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials.

Overview

The FAME+ Master is a two-year Master of Science Program in Advanced Functional Materials. It is taught in English (100%) at seven universities, leaders in the field.

This  Functional Advanced Materials and Engineering (FAME) from the University of Bordeaux  provides high-level academic and researchoriented education on the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials with emphasis on “Advanced Hybrid Materials and Ceramics by Design” in Bordeaux.

The program helps students develop a creative thinking mindset and leadership skills, along with a keen awareness of social and industrial needs, thanks to innovative learning practices that include extensive, collaborative projects.

European mobility is mandatory during the two-year Master program thus taking advantage of the complementary skills of the universities in the network. In the last decade, more than 200 students have graduated from the FAME+ Master.

Academic cooperation: Université de Liège, Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (coordinator), University of Bordeaux (France), Universität Augsburg, Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany), Universidade de Aveiro (Portugal).
