EM3E

The master EM3E-4SW

The Master in Membrane Engineering for a Sustainable World, EM3E-4SW, offers an advanced education programme related to membrane science and engineering at the interface between material science and chemical engineering and focused on specific applicative fields. It involves 6 Higher Education Institutions of 5 European countries:

  • Université de Montpellier (France), coordinating organisation,
  • Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier (Toulouse, France),
  • University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Czech Republic),
  • Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal),
  • Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain),
  • University of Twente (Netherlands).

Associated partners are:

  • Università della Calabria (Italy),
  • Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium),

The pedagogical project of the master comes from the closely collaboration between partners through the European Research Network of Excellence NanoMemPro.

The Master course has a duration of two years: 4 semesters corresponding to 30 ECTS each and given at least in 3 countries. In the first year, theoretical and practical fundaments are provided: After an integration week, students enter the Master either at Université de Montpellier or at Université Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier. In each of these universities, there are common mandatory and optional units, corresponding to teaching and research field of excellence of each partner (material science in Montpellier and physico-chemical processes in Toulouse). This first semester is adapted to students by taking into account the background and their learning objectives. During the second semester, students follow mandatory teaching units to acquire knowledge and skills on process modelling and simulation at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague. During the second year, students choose to pursue their training in one of three university in order to acquire specific skills in an application field: Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (Universidad de Zaragoza), Energy and Environment (University of Twente), and Biotechnologies, Food and Health (Universidade Nova de Lisboa). The last semester is devoted to a 6 months master thesis in a university or an industrial company. The number of enrolled students is maximum 30.

The language of instruction is English. During the study period, the courses and activities country languages and culture are also provided. Students will be awarded with a multiple Master’s degrees from the three hosting universities, together with a Diploma Supplement.
