The Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World, EM3E-4SW, offer an advanced educational programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between materials science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields.
It involves 6 Higher Education Institutions of 5 European countries:
- Université de Montpellier (France), coordinating organisation,
- Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France),
- University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czech Republic),
- Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal),
- Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain),
- University of Twente (Netherlands).
Associated partners are:
- Università della Calabria (Italy),
- Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium)
The pedagogical project of the master comes from the close collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro.
The Master course has a duration of two years: 4 semesters corresponding to 30 ECTS each and spent in at least 3 different countries.
In the first year, theoretical and practical fundaments are provided. After an integration week, students enter the Master either at Université de Montpellier or at Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier. In each of these universities, there are common mandatory and optional units, corresponding to the teaching and research field of excellence of each partner (materials science in Montpellier and physicochemical processes in Toulouse).
This first semester is adapted to students by taking into account the background and their learning objectives. During the second semester, students follow mandatory teaching units to acquire knowledge and skills on process modelling and simulation at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague.
During the second year, students choose to pursue their training in one of three universities in order to acquire specific skills in an application field: Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (Universidad de Zaragoza), Energy and Environment (University of Twente), and Biotechnologies, Food and Health (Universidade Nova de Lisboa).
The last semester is devoted to a 6 months master thesis in a university or an industrial company. The number of enrolled students is maximum 30.
The language of instruction is English. During the study period, the courses and activities country languages and culture are also provided. Students will be awarded a multiple Master’s degrees from the three hosting universities, together with a Diploma Supplement.
The minimum admission criteria are the same for all students irrespective of their country of origin or of the training track they candidate to.
Hold a Bologna 1st cycle degree or a bachelor degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, or equivalent degrees in one of the previous domains, from a College, University or Technical School with a recognised standing or alternatively, a recognised professional experience in these areas.
Students in the final year of a degree may be admitted as long as they present the certificate and official transcripts before they enrol. Applicant should include a letter from his/her university stating the anticipated date of completion of the degree.
Excellent academic background. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their academic grades, professional experience, and motivation letter explaining their education and professional objectives and letters of recommendation.
Proof of English proficiency (all courses are conducted in English). English language tests accepted are: TOEFL-iBT (required overall of at least 90); IELTS (required overall score of at least 6,5); University of Cambridge (“Certificate of Proficiency in English” or “Certificate in Advanced English”). Other official proof could be admitted under validation of the EM3E consortium. Candidate from English speaking countries or candidate who completed his/her bachelor degree in English as medium of instruction must provide an official letter from his/her university from which he/she graduated attesting that English is the media of instruction.
