Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion +

The Master’s Course is composed of 3 semesters of classes plus a fourth semester in a Research Laboratory in Europe, USA or Australia for the 6-month Master's Thesis. Students can study in up to 4 different countries within 2 years depending on their mobility choices. The first semester is spent in Poland (WUT, Warsaw) for the whole class which then moves to France for semester 2 (UPS, Toulouse). The third semester is spent either in Spain (Bilbao) or Slovenia (Ljubljana) or France (Amiens) before the Master Thesis (30 associated Labs. in Universities and Companies including BOSCH, UMICORE, RENAULT, TOTAL, SOLVAY, SAFT, EDF, SOLVIONIC).  
Core courses include the fundamentals of electrochemistry, materials science, solid state chemistry and energy storage, materials technology and processing, energy conversion, conducting polymers, synthesis of nano-materials. During semester 3, students choose specialized units more focused on engineering and prototyping of systems, to gain deeper knowledge into areas where the participating universities and research centers have world-class expertise.
The Master’s Course ensures intensive and innovative training for International and European students. Successful students graduate with a Joint Diploma and national Master’s degrees awarded by the Universities of the Consortium and recognized in each of the countries visited. 
The admission criteria for this Course are highly competitive. Candidates apply for EMJMD, Industrial scholarships from the MESC+ partners or as self-funded students. Applicants should possess a Bachelor of Sciences, preferably in the fields of physical chemistry, materials science or electrochemistry. Students’ academic records will be rigorously scrutinized and applicants will be asked to explain their goals and interests in coming to Europe.

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree

An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) is a prestigious, integrated, international study program, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions (HEIs) and, where relevant, other partners with specific expertise and interest in the study program.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) aim to:

  • foster quality improvements, innovation, excellence and internationalization in higher education institutions (HEI);
  • increase the quality and the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and support the EU's external action in the higher education field, by offering full degree scholarships to the best Master students worldwide;
  • improve the level of competences and skills of Master graduates, and in particular the relevance of the Joint Masters for the labour market, through an increased involvement of employers.
