The strengths of the programme
An important strength of the programme is the complementarity of partners in terms of their expertise. This applies to both academic and industry partners, and it is one of the main attractions for prospective students. Multidisciplinarity is thereby built in the consortium and curriculum.
First-year choices: Advanced materials, Clean technology and Polymers
For the first year, students can choose between UBx, UNL and UM. While UBx courses focus on Advanced Materials Sciences and Sustainability, UM focusses on recycling processes in polymers and composites, and UNL teaches courses on Advanced Materials Engineering and Clean Tech. That means students can choose between a more materials and sustainability science orientated studies in Bordeaux, a specialisation on polymers in Miskolc, or a stronger engineering and technology focus in Lisbon. UM’s focus on polymer recycling is unique worldwide and a real asset to AMIR-EM’s comprehensive academic approach.
Third semester options: Metallurgy, Design for recycling, and Circular economy
For the third semester students can choose among UPM, TUDa and ULiège. Courses in Liège will focus on metals recycling, while Darmstadt specialises in the design for recycling of functional materials, and Madrid on minerals and building materials recycling in the context of the circular economy.
