Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability

European Master in Materials Science

Welcome to the Master’s Programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability (AMIS), a launchpad for understanding the full raw materials value chain and developing a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship. If you want to influence positive change for the environment and help secure a sustainable future, then get involved and join the AMIS Master’s Programme!

AMIS is part of the EIT Raw Materials Academy

The AMIS programme has received the EIT Label, a quality seal awarded to top Master and PhD programmes that excel in shaping a new generation of students into game changers and innovators.

EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union, is the largest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to enable sustainable competitiveness of the European minerals, metals and materials sector along the value chain by driving innovation, education and entrepreneurship.

By studying an EIT-labelled Master’s you are joining an international community established to unite forward thinkers and entrepreneurs, to share ideas and make innovation happen.

Study Objectives

AMIS tackles the following themes – all of which are central to the goals of EIT RawMaterials:

  • Substitution of critical or toxic materials in products and for optimised performance
  • Material chain optimisation for end-of-life products
  • Product and services design for the circular economy

The primary focus of the adaptation is on metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-base and polymer materials are covered in view of their substitution potential and other materials in the context of multi-material product recycling. In addition, the AMIS Programme includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.

The mobility of the students is an integrated part of the two-year programme, during which they will study at two of the consortium partner universities. Upon completion of the programme, students will receive a double degree. The language of instruction is English.
