The master FAMEAIS is organised in 4 semesters.
Semester 1 and 2 (60 ECTS*) are followed in a single university, which can be TU Darmstadt or Grenoble INP-UGA. These two semesters deal with general topics about materials science.
Semester 3 (30 ECTS*) is followed in one of the 7 universities of the Consortium, necessarily in a different country as the first year of the master. This third semester is dedicated to a specialisation provided by one of the partner universities as world-leading expert; it is made of mandatory and elective courses.
Semester 4 (30 ECTS*) is a 6 months master thesis, preferably followed in the same location as semester 3, although exceptions can be accepted to this rule.
*ECTS (European Credit Transfer System): Created by the European Community to facilitate students’ mobility across Europe by a mutual recognition of their education unit values. To obtain a Master of Science degree, 120 ECTS are necessary (i.e. 30 ECTS per semester).
