Summer school MaMaSELF is a 2 year ERASMUS MUNDUS Master Course in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities. It deals with material characterization using neutron and synchrotron radiation with strong synergies between universities, industrial partners and research centres. In an international environment, it offers excellent academic and industrial opportunities to Master Students. A 2 weeks summer school is organized for all Mamaself students in the beginning of the second year at the University of Rennes. Objective of the summer school is to obtain a wide background in exploring materials using neutron or synchrotron radiation. Status Meeting Mamaself The Mamaself status meeting is organized in Switzerland during the 4th semester and brings together all second-year Mamaself students and representatives of Partner Institutions. During the status meeting the students will present the preliminary results of their Master-thesis work. Additionally scientific topics will be presented by specialists from research centres. Master in Materials Science Exploring Large Scale Facilities www.mamaself.eu Partner institutions The Consortium The Master thesis during the 4th semester can be conducted partially/entirely at 3rd country partner institutions outside Europe or at Large Scale Facilities. Third country partners institutions are situated in Switzerland (PSI, Zurich), Japan (Kyoto University, Tokyo Institute of Technology), India (IIT Madras), USA (University of Wisconsin, Cornell University, Manhattan Kansas University), Russia (Southern Federal University), Brazil (University of Sao Paulo).

This implies new and additional exigencies for scientists and engineers in the field of scientific and technological advancements. The MaMaSELF Master’s Course aims at promoting international collaboration among Universities, Large Scale Facilities and Industry. Its main objective is to form skilled scientists in Materials Science together with an advanced knowledge in the use of Large Scale Facilities for the characterization of high technology materials. The two year Mamaself programme is split in 4 semesters : The first year (SEM 1 & SEM 2) is entirely enrolled at one out of the five universities of the consortium, SEM 3 at a different university. SEM 4 is dedicated to the Master thesis and can be carried out at any university or Large scale facility or at partner institutions situated in Switzerland, Japan and India, USA, Russia. (For details refer to our website www.mamaself.eu) The European ERASMUS-MUNDUS programme stands for the promotion of the European Union as a Centre of Excellence in the field of higher education. It strongly supports high-quality Master Courses to enhance visibility and attractiveness of European higher education all around the world. It can provide EU-funded scholarships for non-EU and EU students participating in these Master Courses. Additional scholarships are foreseen for visiting non-EU Academics. The Master Mamaself is part of the Erasmus Mundus 2 framework. Erasmus Mundus website: The two-year MaMaSELF Master’s Course covers 120 ECTS credit points.
