The AMASE Master  is an international study programme in the field of advanced Materials Science and Engineering which takes two years. It was established by the AMASE Consortium of four partner universities: Saarland University (Germany), Luleå Technical University (Sweden), Barcelona Tech (Spain), Université de Lorraine (France). Through this agreement participating students can obtain a Master’s Degree, which leads to a double degree.
