View MSc Programs in Materials Science in Belgium 2019

Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.

Materials science is a field that strives to meet the needs of manufacturing and other industries that rely on resources. As natural and renewable sources are diminishing, students who become material scientists may develop new supplies by applying chemistry, biotechnology, and engineering.

Course content

The program Master of Science in Materials Engineering: sustainable materials aims at the study of properties, production or extraction, processing, use and recycling of a whole range of materials. This implies:

description and modeling of properties of a material chemical, mechanical and thermal processing aspects in materials engineering influence of the chemical composition and processing conditions on the structure and properties of materials in view of optimal performance the behavior of materials in different user circumstances and how degradation can be limited.

Dealing with limited resource availability worldwide in a sustainable way is an important objective of the course. Important materials dealt with are metals, synthetic materials, textiles, composites and ceramics. In order to specialize in specific types of materials, students can choose between two majors....

MSc in Chemical and Materials Engineering

This master is jointly organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel in collaboration with Université Libre de Bruxelles, leading to a joint master's degree.

This master’s programme aims to train students to become engineers employable in fields such as the petrochemical and polymer industry, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, biotechnology, inorganic bulk chemistry, extractive metallurgy and the recycling industry. The programme encompasses two distinct profiles: Process Technology and Materials.

Go to program webpage

PROGRAMME CURRICULUM

In the Process Technology profile, the student is trained to operate in production units, consultant engineering firms and the environmental sector. The Materials profile covers production and development facilities for different types of materials. The master’s programme has a common core of 56 ECTS credits, ensuring a strong mutual interaction and integration between both profiles. The development of environmentally friendly and safe production processes for materials, the shaping and processing of materials into intermediate or finished products, and the optimal integration of materials in other disciplines are strongly related to the optimisation of environmentally friendly chemical processes in general....

Best Master of Science Programs in Materials Science in Belgium 2019. Materials are at the heart of our quality of life and economic welfare and this will continue to be the case in the foreseeable future, especially considering the need to build a sustainable world and to use our resources intelligently. Materials engineers invent, design, make and use materials for products, processes, and services. You are educated for leadership in sectors where materials play a decisive role. What's the Master of Materials Engineering about? The structure of the program consists of a core of 60 credits, four options of 12 credits, three fixed elective packages of 12 credits, engineering and general interest electives of 12 credits and the Master's thesis of 24 credits. ...

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.

The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:... [-]

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.

Sustainable Material Solutions with SUMA

The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competencies for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions, and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation....

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

As global and EU populations increase along with well-being and welfare, consumption per capita is also increasing. In the EU especially, consumption has outpaced production, particularly with respect to the more complicated, resource-intensive technologies and products that have become part of daily life. As a result, the importance of recycling and the circular economy will continue to increase in order to diversify our sources of supply and meet our needs.

AMIS is a Master programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability. The primary objective of the programme is to provide students with an understanding of the full raw materials value chain and a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability. AMIS tackles this challenge by focusing on three themes – all of which are central themes of EIT RawMaterials:... [-]
