Master  in Material Science exploiting European Large Scale Facilities.

Mamaself is a one year full time Master aiming to promote the scientific collaboration between universities, large scale facilities and industry.

European and non-European students can apply 

This Master is the result of the collaboration between 3 universities : Rennes 1 univsersity, (France), University of Turino, (Italy), Technical University München (Germany), and the participation of the Ludwig Maximilians University  München (Germany).

Each student of the Master will have to spend one semester in two of the three universities.

The Master degree will be delivered by two of the three universities, so the students will receive a double Master degree in Material Science.

Several important Large Scale Facilities strongly support this Master. They contribute to the organisation of the summer school and will also host students in the second semester to follow research activities : ESRF and ILL (Grenoble , France), LLB (Saclay, France), DESY (Hamburg, Germany), FRM-II (Munich, Germany).
