Professional opportunities

Professional opportunities

Graduates of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMASE) will be internationally recognised experts in materials science and engineering. In this field, they will exercise their abilities and apply their academic, professional and research knowledge. Languages are part of students’ training and mobility is compulsory, allowing students to improve their German, French or English language skills and to obtain two qualifications from two European universities (the home institution and the host institution). These characteristics are particularly valued by many European companies.


Generic competencies

Generic competencies are the skills that graduates acquire regardless of the specific course or field of study. The generic competencies established by the UPC are capacity for innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainability and social commitment, knowledge of a foreign language (preferably English), teamwork and proper use of information resources.

Specific competencies

On completion of the course, students will be able to do the following:

  • Design, develop and select materials.
  • Create and develop production and transformation processes.
  • Carry out inspections and quality control of materials and production, and transformation and utilization processes.
  • Evaluate the security, durability and functional life of materials.
  • Design, develop and control recovery, re-use and recycling processes for materials.
  • Issue all kinds of expert reports on materials and processes.
  • Carry out research and teaching in the areas mentioned.
