About DocMASE

European Joint Doctoral Programme in Materials Science and Engineering (DocMASE)

The DocMASE doctoral programme is the next consequent step following the already existing structures for international education EUSMAT's framework and is being jointly offered by:


  • Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany


  • Université de Lorraine, France


  • Technical University of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain


  • Luleå University of Technology in Luleå, Sweden


  • Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden



Besides the five partner univerities, 20 associated partners from academia, research and industry take part in DocMASE.



The aim of DocMASE is to provide a high-level research structure for the best students from Europe and the world. Research projects organised in close cooperation by two universities of the consortium will be offered. Co-mentorship is an integral part of the project, thus students will be assigned an advisor from each university where he/she carries out the research work. 

Students can opt for an academic or an industrial focus in their research. Throughout the PhD, doctoral students are required to go to one of the partner universities for at least six months, and additionally to one of the associated partners for at least two weeks.
