In 2005, EEIGM, with its institutional partners, created a two-year multinational Master in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering
Students carry out the first two semesters in a partner university of their choice; the third semester is spent in one of the other universities of the consortium. The fourth semester consists of a research project in a laboratory of one of the two universities where the student has studied. Students receive a double Master’s degree from the two universities concerned.
In the EEIGM engineering course, classes are taught in French in Nancy, Spanish in Barcelona, in English in Lulea, and in German in Saarbrucken.
This Master’s degree has been awarded the prestigious title of « Erasmus Mundus » by the European Commission in Brussels. This title is granted to just 100 Masters (of all disciplines) throughout Europe. The title has just been renewed for 5 years.

Language used in teaching
Barcelona: Spanish and English
Students should send their application (see ”Application” on the site https://eusmat.net/international-studies/master/amase/) to the secretary of the AMASE program at the University of Saarbrucken. Applicants must include all the required documents, notably,

Applicants for the Erasmus Mundus grant must return their completed forms to Saarbrucken before 15th January.
Registration deadlines for non-European students who are not applying for the Erasmus Mundus grant are:
31st January for students wishing to begin the program in Lulea (Sweden)
15th May for students wishing to begin the program in Barcelona
15th May for students wishing to begin the program in Nancy or Saarbrucken
Registration deadlines for European Union students are:
15th April for students wishing to begin the program in Lulea
15th May for students wishing to begin the program in Nancy, Barcelona or Saarbrucken
Fees & Scholarships
The participation costs for the AMASE Master Programme vary depending on your nationality and if your home country is part of the EU or not.
1500€ (per semester)
4500€ (per semester)*
The participation costs depend on your nationality. In case you have both a European and a Non-EU passport, you will only have to pay 1500 € per semester.
*The participation costs for Non-EU students who started in the winter semester 2014/15 and in the winter semester 2016/17 will NOT change and therefore still amount to 4.000€ per semester. The participation costs rise to 4.500€ for Non-EU students starting their studies in the winter semester 2017/18.
The following costs are included in the participation costs and can be reimbursed for all students (few exceptions):
Accident and health insurance (171€ per semester)
Registration fees (Note: Registration fees are only paid for the university the student is currently studying at!)
Costs for the Integration Week and Professional Summer School, plus travel allowance (only for self-financers: 30€ to UL, 100€ to UPC, 200€ to LTU)
Self- financing students coming to the Saarland University in the 3rd Semester: a reimbursement for one intensive language course
All students at Saarland University are exempt from an extra administration fee, called Verwaltungskostenbeitrag
To get a reimbursement, please download the reimbursement document fill in your data, sign, and send it (with proof of payment if possible) to email@example.com. We will then hand it into the financial department and they will make the transfer.
This is a regular Erasmus+ funding, which all students in Europe are eligible for by studying in another European country.
Although Erasmus+ is not equal to a full-scholarship, it is a mobility allowance which will help you cover your costs abroad. The amount depends on each country and varies between 250 – 350€ a month.
You may receive funding for your second year in AMASE, so the time you study at your Second University. In order to be eligible for said funding, you will have to apply for Erasmus+ at your Entrance University during the first year. Please contact the respective international office for more detailed information.
!!For the moment, Erasmus+ is not available if UPC or LTU is your Entrance university!!
